Scenario 3 — The least likely scenario is the opposite of going over the cliff: striking a “grand bargain” during the lame-duck Congress and outlining how to get trillion or more in deficit reduction over the next decade.

Fiscal watchdog groups have joined forces with corporate CEOs to encourage such a deal. But there are dangers to agreeing on too much, too soon. It could trigger a European-style recession, which could turn policymakers back toward stimulus spending and tax cuts, such as those in 2009.

One key to a long-term deal: eliminating or at least reducing tax deductions and loopholes that cost the government billions.

Fiscal danger lurks with nearly every choice

Here’s a look at whose pocketbooks could be pinched, and how

WASHINGTON — The nation’s leaders are beginning to make decisions that could affect the pocketbooks of 315 million Americans. Here’s a look at three scenarios that could play out:
.

— Scenario 1

As President Barack Obama demands higher tax rates for the wealthiest and Republicans insist that won’t happen, the two sides could go briefly past Jan. 1 without a deal on most of the expiring tax breaks. That could lead to an economic slowdown and joblessness heading toward 10 percent. T. Rowe Price chief economist Alan Levenson says Obama can reduce the effect for a short time by ordering the Internal Revenue Service to collect 2013 withholding taxes at 2012 rates.

If all of the fiscal cliff’s tax and spending measures stay in effect, the economy would fall into a mild recession in the first half of the year before resuming weak growth rate in the second, the Congressional Budget Office estimates. Unemployment, now 7.9 percent, would rise to 9.1 percent by the end of 2013, CBO said.

It’s unlikely the downturn, while expected to be short, would be as nasty as the 2008 financial crisis. Financial markets think the CBO’s forecast is optimistic.

Fitch, one of the bond-rating services whose threats to cut the U.S. bond rating is driving pressure to make a deal, says unemployment could top 10 percent.

The Tax Policy Center estimates that toppling over the cliff would cost about ,500 per household. A typical middle-income family would see taxes rise about ,000. Those in the top 1 percent would pay about 0,000 more; the average low-income household would pay about 0 more.

Another downside: Congress has to decide whether to let the payroll tax cut and extended jobless benefits expire, because both were tied to the recession. Eliminating the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits could cost the economy 800,000 jobs, CBO says. The Wall Street firm BlackRock estimates it would cut the economy’s 2 percent growth rate in half.

If extended unemployment insurance expires, 2.1 million Americans would see benefits stop immediately.

Automatic spending cuts would trim about billion, or nearly 10 percent, from the defense budget. While Obama has exempted the armed forces from personnel or pay cuts, more than 100,000 civilian employees could lose their jobs.
.

— Scenario 2

This most likely scenario includes extending most if not all of the Bush tax cuts and making a down payment on spending cuts. The payroll tax cut and extended jobless benefits could expire; the AMT could be patched. A timetable for actions on spending and income taxes would be created.

Republican leaders insist Obama’s proposal to raise the top income tax rate from 35 percent to 39.6 percent, where it was under President Clinton, would hurt small-business job creation.

Restoring payroll taxes to their 2010 level would raise about 5 billion, and ending the extended unemployment insurance benefits would save an additional billion.

Because Congress has patched the AMT every year since 1969, it’s likely to do so again.

Today, the AMT, originally intended to ensure the wealthy pay a minimum income tax, usually hits taxpayers who have a household income greater than ,000 and are married with more than two kids, says Bob Meighan, vice president at TurboTax. It would hit an estimated 28 million for the first time if Congress doesn’t act, raising their 2012 tax bills an average of ,700.

A compromise deal would reduce growth next year by as much as 1.5 percentage points, says Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, but would hurt average taxpayers less than many people believe. The recovering economy is nearly ready to pick up that slack, partly because of the improving housing market, rising consumer confidence and the effect that more certainty may have on business investment, he says.
.

— Scenario 3

The least likely scenario is the opposite of going over the cliff: striking a “grand bargain” during the lame-duck Congress and outlining how to get trillion or more in deficit reduction over the next decade.

Fiscal watchdog groups have joined forces with corporate CEOs to encourage such a deal. But there are dangers to agreeing on too much, too soon. It could trigger a European-style recession, which could turn policymakers back toward stimulus spending and tax cuts, such as those in 2009.

One key to a long-term deal: eliminating or at least reducing tax deductions and loopholes that cost the government billions.

Targets include tax breaks for oil and gas companies, and the wealthy, but some could affect middle-income taxpayers, such as breaks for home mortgage interest and employer-paid health insurance.

FL Officials File Emergency Rule to Outlaw Synthetic Drugs …

Posted: Tue 5:32 PM, Dec 11, 2012

Tallahassee, FL – Attorney General Pam Bondi, Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey, and others announced that the Attorney General’s office has filed an emergency rule outlawing 22 new synthetic drugs commonly called "bath salts," "K2," or "spice."

The rule designates new synthetic drugs as "Schedule I" of controlled substances, making it a third-degree felony for an individual to "sell, manufacture, or deliver, or possess with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver" these drugs. Synthetic drugs can cause psychotic episodes, hallucinations, seizures, paranoia, tremors, and more.

Attorney General Bondi said the drugs were no longer being targeted towards adults, but kids.

"I just want to point out to you the marketing, and this is what is actually disgusting to me. Look at this, these are "Scoobie Snacks," said Bondi as she held up one of the outlawed substances. "Do you think this is directed at an adult? This is directed at a young child."

The announcement was made Tuesday following the Governor and Cabinet meeting.
