Fiscal cliff issue not over just yet

Posted: Updated:

Houstonians have had enough of the fiscal cliff.  Not just the situation, but even hearing about it.

"I've heard it 30 times a day over the last month," Mike DeArman said.  "I'm hoping we go off it so I can stop hearing about it."

He might get half his wish.  Street Talk Advisors' Lance Roberts said he doesn't think that there are enough spending cuts to go along with the tax hikes to appease House Republicans.

"I think it's dead when it hits the house floor," Roberts said.

He points out Tea Party members are unlikely to go for it.

He said pass or fail, this is only part to the problem.

Negotiations over the debt ceiling are looming.
