“New year, new burden? Well, though not upfront, with the passing of the Fiscal Cliff Deal, that seems to be the case for most Americans. And as it was said, in figures, that burden could convert up to $1000 or even more in an average-earning household.

As it was reported, on Tuesday the Fiscal Cliff Deal has already been passed. Long before the 2012 ended, it was already the “talk” in the world of politics. And now that it was already signed, 77% percent of American households was said to feel its negative impact.”
