A Fiscal Cliff Deal? – Not Yet

I hate to be the pessimist in the room, but regardless of all the positive talk today about a potential fiscal cliff deal, nothing is done until congress votes on it. The details of the potential deal includes an extension of unemployment benefits, a patch of the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) so that it doesn’t hit middle class families, and extensions of the earned income tax credit and college tax credit for 5 years.
