The Fiscal Cliff

Congress passed a bipartisan budget bill at the end of 2013 with little fanfare, but don't expect the spirit of cooperation to extend to raising the nation's debt ceiling. Obama and Democrats say they will not negotiate over this issue and Republicans are unlikely to want to raise the debt limit without offsetting at least some of the cost.
