The world is finally paying attention to the Fiscal Cliff, but Ali Velshi has been warning you about the economic storm of our own making for months now. The biggest impediment to a deal may be Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge signed by nearly every congressional republican. Ali will find out if the only Democrat in the current congress to sign the pledge is sticking to his guns.
And: While Americans remain in limbo about their tax bill, don’t look to the Europeans for sympathy. They pay more and expect more from government. Are they getting ripped off or are Americans getting a bargain? Ali debates with CNNi’s Richard Quest.
