It looks like US taxes are about to go up on the 1st of the year, that ain't going to help. Question is which ones, and when it happens. Depending on the outcome of the elections, maybe the lame duck session will do a lot, a little, or very little. Our GDP numbers seem to be hovering around 2% so far for 2012, we'll get a number for the 3rd qtr around the end of October. Doesn't seem to be much optimism for 2013 either, maybe a bit higher but everything is so uncertain.

Even if the repubs take the Senate it'll only be by a seat or two; they'll need some cooperation from the dems, who may not be interested in cooperating unless they get something out of it. I think at this point it's all a crap shoot, emphasis on crap.
Virtually all of the repubs in the house would rather see us all go down in flams than go on record cooperating with Obama.
