Feldman to President Obama: Solve the fiscal cliff Detroit-style

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (myFOXDetroit.com) -

FOX 2's Murray Feldman has a word of advice for President Obama.  He suggests solving the fiscal cliff the way we've been handling things here in Detroit for years – locking the doors and letting nobody in – or out – until the issue gets resolved.

The stock market had its worst two-day plunge in a year after voters returned President Barack Obama, a Republican House and a Democratic Senate to power.

Investors fear the approaching cliff - tax increases and government spending cuts that begin to take effect Jan. 1 unless Obama and Congress can work out a compromise.

Economists say the hit to the economy next year could be $800 billion, enough to push the United States back into another recession. And financial analysts are predicting more market turmoil as the deadline approaches.

Lawmakers almost certainly will work out a deal - perhaps messily, unsatisfyingly and with lots of theatrics, but a deal nonetheless.
