Let Mr. Burns Explain the Fiscal Cliff to You


This whole self-created fiscal cliff crisis is both complicated and simple at the same time: complicated in that it involves a whole slew of specific tax hikes and spending cuts that, if enacted, would have a huge effect on the economy, and simple in that it's just a bad thing that congress created in order to force themselves to actually do their jobs and they really hate that the time is now upon them to deal with it. Why stress about something you have no control over that'll almost definitely be taken care of in a satisfactory-enough manner when you can just have reliable old heartless billionaire Monty Burns explain the ins and outs to you while making jokes at the expense of the very rich?
