Cliff Notes The country is racing toward what's become known as a fiscal cliff and who's at the wheel? Washington Democrats and Republicans. Not the most reassuring thought, is it? Thursday on The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the latest efforts to work out a deal to avoid the cliff with spending cuts, tweaks to social programs and higher taxes on the top two percent of workers. And what would happen if we did go over the cliff? Join us,Thursday morning at 9:00.
