The interesting thing is that the CNBC article points out that going over the "fiscal cliff", given current conditions, would initiate a recession. But then they go on to say that the tax increases and spending cuts needed to avoid sequestration would also trigger a recession. One might think the latter might not be as bad, but IMO other factors are at work, and it could be just as bad. The CNBC article even seems to hint at that.
Basically, we are screwed either way -- no news to Freepers, and not even "new news" to CNBC -- but CNBC would of course never release such an article just before the election.
