The Fiscal Cliff Drama

I’m starting to suspect that we are being held in all this suspense about the fiscal cliff on purpose. Every news channel has been spinning an apocalyptic narrative about the supposed (and in my opinion completely imaginary) horror of the fiscal cliff. And now I’m hearing on the CNN about a 3-month delay of the sequester. All of this just has to be tied to the end of the year because that makes the end of the world narrative easier to sell.

By the time we get out of this particular drama, thee will be the suspense of the Congress elections. And so the drama will continue with no respite.

What is your best guess as to the purpose behind the completely fabricated fiscal cliff drama?
