FISCAL CLIFF:

FISCAL CLIFF-NO DEAL IMPACT

WASHINGTON â¿¿ The dealmakers who warn that a year-end plunge off the "fiscal cliff" would be disastrous don't seem to be rushing to stop it. Why aren't they panicking?

FISCAL CLIFF-TAX RUCKUS

WASHINGTON â¿¿ In the fiscal cliff wars, a pivotal battle is raging between Democrats demanding to raise revenue by boosting tax rates on the nation's highest earners and Republicans insisting on eliminating deductions and other tax breaks instead. Which is better for the economy? Analysts say it depends. By Alan Fram.

FISCAL CLIFF-MEDICARE AGE

WASHINGTON â¿¿ Americans are living longer, and Republicans want to raise the Medicare eligibility age as part of a deal to reduce the government's huge deficits. But what sounds like a prudent sacrifice to address tight budgets could have some surprising consequences, including higher premiums for people on Medicare. By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar.
