South Dakotans Worry About Fiscal Cliff

Bookmark and Share

Newspapers across the country share similar headlines as the fiscal cliff looms. And politicians in Washington are running out of time.       

Like most issues that come from Washington, people all over the country, including South Dakota, have different opinions on what's happening in the nations capital. And, it's no different in this case.
“I'm frustrated with both sides and I think the political impasse should be unnecessary. And, I'm pretty much sick of it to be frank with you,” said Neal Eddy.  

“What we're all complaining about could just be a good thing,” said Dustin Weibel. Weibel believes if the deadline for the fiscal cliff comes and goes without a compromise, America's long-term financial future will benefit.  

“To me, I don't think it's going to crush our business. It's not going to impact are ability to hire people. But, at the same time, if it means we've got to take some higher taxes to protect our children's future, then I'm game for that,” said Weibel.

Since the election, Washington has been inundated with talk of the Fiscal Cliff. And, with republicans and democrats duking it out, a lack of compromise in the nations capital is something most are used to.    
“I've learned to expect less and less from these folks,” said Weibel.  

“They've got to come together. They've got to find a common ground. That's compromising, whether you're republican or democrat and until we don't, this country continues to be in danger,” said Eddy.

While most will be watching the clock this New Year’s Eve, barring a last minute deal, politicians will be counting down to tax increases and spending cuts.
