LARRY MCDONALD: There's a huge divergence in the market because we're at all-time highs and people have to realize we've done $6.5 trillion of deficit spending the last two years — 6.5 trillion.
And Republicans and conservative Democrats want to take that down to 1 or 2 trillion. In other words, last year the deficit was 3 trillion total, 3.5. They want to take it down to 1.
That's, you know, $2 to 2.5 trillion fiscal cliff and the equity market is not priced for that. So we have a lot of drama coming the next six weeks as Republicans and Democrats fight this out.
