There is growing optimism that Congress and the President will finally be able to end the series of “fiscal cliff” crises that have become all too common. A small window of opportunity might present itself around the expiration of current debt ceiling, which is expected around July or August. While serious differences remain not only between Republicans and Democrats in Congress but also between each party and the President as to how best to forge a comprehensive fiscal plan, there is increasing hope that those differences could be resolved.
