A political author says the so-called United States ‘fiscal cliff’
gives an excuse for the government to implement genocidal austerity against the working class.
The fiscal cliff refers to a variety of tax increases and spending cuts that are set to kick in from January 1
unless the Republicans and the Democrats can come together with an alternative budget plan.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley, author and historian from Washington,
to further discuss the issue.
