    The National Assn. of Manufacturers has met w/ Obama's top advisors to express their opinions and priorities on the Fiscal Cliff negotiations.

    Interesting, wonder who else the WH is meeting with to discuss these negotiations

    “As negotiations to avert the fiscal cliff drag on, Washington policymakers cannot continue to ignore the dangerous warning signs from the manufacturing sector,” said Timmons in a blog post on the NAM website. “Without action to address the fiscal issues facing us, manufacturers are at serious risk.
    Well, actually the "fiscal cliff" brouhaha doesn't have much to do with manufacturing and jobs. Expiration of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans doesn't translate to damage to corporate profits.  

    But it sounds like there's a lot of saber rattling going on.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
