How will the 'fiscal cliff' affect you?

So it’s come to this: Almost two months’ worth of a lame duck session of Congress, and with four days to go, no deal on a way to walk back from the year-end “fiscal cliff.” Just crickets, and an occasional jab at the other side for wasting time. For the past week, hardly anybody from the Minnesota Congressional delegation in either party has uttered a word about it in public, and there’s talk in the U.S. Capitol of “radio silence.”
But the automatic tax hikes and federal spending cuts known as the fiscal cliff will kick in starting next week, unless Congress can make a last-minute deal. If the politicians aren’t talking, or at least not talking constructively, we want to know how it’s affecting you. Tell us your story by sending an e-mail to Whistleblower@startribune.com.
And, as usual, you can also sound off in the comments section below.
