Our take: Are you curious when taxes will rise from 15 percent to 39.6 as a result from the fiscal cliff? Marilyn Geewax and Greg Henderson from NPR created a timeline of the upcoming fiscal cliff:
"As weary as many Americans grew of campaign commercials last month, they may be getting even more annoyed this month by endless talk of the fiscal cliff, the massive collection of tax increases and spending cuts set to take effect at year's end.
It's easy to understand the urge to stick fingers in ears and loudly chant 'la-la-la-la.' The budget problems are indeed complicated, and the negotiations tedious."
