Issues regarding the fiscal cliff continue to plague US news.  Historically low rates due to slow-moving economic conditions are predominant.  However, if Congress does not come to an agreement by the end of the year we can expect tax hikes and spending cuts.  Congress needs to implement a plan to reduce deficit and lower debt.  Should that not happen, we should all turn out heads to Greece and see what happened over there.
