Put up or shut up time for Congress, Obama on fiscal cliff
WASHINGTON -- Congress returns to the nation’s capital next week with hopes of a big deal but strong odds favoring another piecemeal approach to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, in a race against the clock to address tax and budget issues while keeping the U.S. economy from tumbling back into recession. The cliff is a series of tax measures that have expired, or are set to expire at year’s end, along with automatic, deep budget cuts that will take effect unless lawmakers agree to an alternative plan. Additionally, the government is slated to hit a debt ceiling sometime between December and February, and tough negotiations are expected over terms under which more government borrowing would be allowed.

Americans are apparently not as infatuated with cars as we thought
We may gripe about taxes and subsidizing Amtrak, but when it comes to getting around, Americans are apparently looking for alternatives to sitting in traffic in our beloved automobiles. Don’t believe me? Look at the election results. This year has seen more transit-related ballot initiatives than any year in at least a decade, according to the Center for Transportation Excellence in Washington, D.C. While two of the highest-profile measures failed — including Los Angeles County’s Measure J, which was defeated yesterday, and another that bombed in Atlanta last summer — in more than two-thirds of the contests this year, voters opted for more buses and trains.

3 Myths You Still Believe About Automotive Manufacturing
Last year's "Halftime in America" ad from Chrysler was probably meant to inspire patriotism and allude to the resurgence of American automotive manufacturing. What this ad failed to mention, though, was that it was brought to you by an Italian company. The idea of buying "American cars" is in several ways a myth that is used to sell cars -- and it's not the only one. Daily Finance
