    Very much.

    The "fiscal cliff" is an invention of people and organizations with an agenda -- which is to cut social programs whose popular support is so strong that the public will never accept a change to them unless they are convinced that an immediate crisis is at hand.

    The reality is that we have a parliamentary challenge that can -- and would otherwise -- be solved by fairly conventional budget negotations between parties.

    Calling this a "fiscal cliff" gives both sides the cover required to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
