[quote:RoXY:MV8xNTc4NDI2XzM0NTAxMTQwX0I5MTJFMkM3] [b]What is the “fiscal cliff”?[/b] By Patrick Martin November 14, 2012 The term “fiscal cliff,” first used by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke last February, refers to the simultaneous expiration of tax cuts and imposition of spending cuts on January 1, 2013. The American media has seized on the term “fiscal cliff” and promoted it, in part, to suggest that measures which would otherwise be enormously popular — ending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy or cutting military spending — are threatening, even dangerous. The main purpose of the media propaganda about the impending “cliff” is to create a sense of financial emergency and override popular opposition to measures the Obama administration and congressional Democrats and Republicans will put forward to avert it, including sweeping cuts in Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. This is bolstered by the reaction in the financial markets, where a sharp sell-off could well serve as a political club to ensure that the policies demanded by Wall Street are adopted in Washington.
