I'm with Ali Velshi, there should be no congratulation for the (day late) vote to avert the fiscal cliff. They had 518 days before they KNEW these cuts were going to take place, yet they still waited until the absolute last minute to pass something. This is not how 'the greatest nation in the world' should operate. Now in 2 months there is another fiscal cliff where they have to make cuts in spending and fiddle with more tax cuts. Along with other cliffs in the coming months after that. This will be ugly and could very well be the beginning of the demise of our nation.
