Already Over the Fiscal Cliff

Going over the fiscal cliff? we are already over it, and have been for a long time.  We are a nation $16 trillion in debt for heaven's sake!
Sadly there is not a politician in sight with the guts to CUT anything.  They are scared to CUT government spending and entitlements.  All they think about is the next election.  Staying in power; regaining power.  We now have a class of people -- professional politicians.
  the days of a government "by the people, for the people, and of the people" are long gone.  Now it is a government "by the politicians, for the politicians and of the politicians."
  The fate of the nation seems to be of no concern.  The big concern in Washington is winning the next election.
  More taxes = more spending (waste) = more debt = more decline.

  How much faith can I have in a class of politicians who took us over the cliff to get us out of the mess?
