    The fiscal cliff: Messages to Washington

    More from tylerstocks

    Message to President and Congress

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     tylerstocks, a liberal college student from Greenville, North Carolina, has a clear message for Washington in the wake of hitting the fiscal cliff: 'I just think Washington and the president need to know it's a disgrace that they dragged their feet like that. Even once everyone came together, they still didn't address things like the debt ceiling and the increase in their salaries. We put them in office to lead and represent us, but they're not really representing.' He added, 'People making $250,000 or more are not going to pay higher taxes, but Congress getting raises was the icing on the cake. The president caved in at the end. Compromise can be a bad thing when you cave in to pressure.' Share your reaction to the House's fiscal cliff solution.
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    We went over the cliff, and politics went on as usual. To make matters worse, the debt ceiling was not addressed and people making 250k don't pay more tax. Then, Congress increases their salaries, while millions of Americans are suffering. This is a joke of a deal.
