Going over the so-called fiscal cliff is the major talk in Washington D.C. though the Missouri and Illinois delegations are dealing with other issues as well.
Host Don Marsh talked with St. Louis Beacon Washington D.C. Correspondent Rob Koenig about the latest news from the nation’s capital, including the fiscal cliff.
The lame duck Congress is now in session and while historically known as a time of inaction, the large task of avoiding the “fiscal cliff” is ever-present.
The fiscal cliff is a combination of tax increases and spending cuts which would take effect on January 1, 2013, primarily due to the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts.
