9. Lame duck Congress is expected to deal with taxes and debt this year

Since the Bush tax cuts expire and defense cuts kick in this January, Congress has to act before January. Most expect that Congress will reconvene after the November election and try to deal with this before a new Congress is reconvened in January. Should be very chaotic and many things will be inserted into those bills that almost no one knows about. We'll be dealing with the repercussions of this for years.
