Does anyone know of a link

To an explanation a simpleton can understand,on the upcoming Debt ceiling "fiscal cliff crisis"??...What REALLY is happening....Who's fault lies where...The deal the thugs made last time around,mostly with their terms,that they now don't want to see happen..

My mother in law is FREAKED out from horribly wrong information,coming in large part from her teabag sister who cherry picks HER facts from the worst of the wrongwing media....

I've tried to calmly explain what the realities are,as have been discussed repeatly every day since tuesday,and can get nowhere with her....

2. I think this link might help

Thanks.....But no...That's too involved.....Too convoluted....She'd never read past the 1st paragragh......Her concern lies in the possible upcoming tax increases caused by the expiration of the Bush tax cuts.....Her sister has convinced her this is a new developement brought on by the Presidents re-election and not the result of the deal agreed to by the thugs LAST time around.....She doesn't have and will NOT have a computer,or I'd simply show her a clip of Lawrence O'Donnel or Rachel Maddow covering it in a short few moments.....

3. Yep, excellent point. Sometimes people that hold these unshakable beliefs got them by

way of mind numbing simple statements, so it does seem your approach is best. Off hand I don't have any links like that. Generally I go to the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), but as you say and I agree, it can be "too involved.....Too convoluted.." via the EPI.
