The Fiscal “Cliff”

Current state of play, according to Politico.  I don’t know how accurate it is — both sides have an incentive to leak versions that are complimentary to themselves and that serve to enhance their negotiations — but it gives you a good sense of the issues involved and a flavor for the sausage-making process that is politics.

And speaking of sausage-making, the movie Lincoln is the best I have ever seen at conveying the sheer nitty-gritty of the political process.  It’s gripping — I highly recommend it!
