Say What?

If the term "fiscal cliff" doesn't ring a bell to you, you're not alone. In a Pew Research Center poll published Nov. 29, just 25 percent of Americans said they understand "very well" what would happen if automatic spending cuts and tax increases take effect in January, 32 percent said they understand it "fairly well" and 42 percent said they understand the impact "not too well."
