Lawmakers are becoming increasingly more fearful that the country going over the "fiscal cliff" in nine days. With the president and John Boehner - the two key negotiators - out for the Christmas holiday and Congress in recess, the will be only a few days next week to act before the deadline. "It's the first time that I feel it's more likely that we will go over the cliff than not," says Senator Joe Lieberman. "If we allow that to happen it will be the most colossal consequential act of congressional irresponsibility in a long time, maybe ever in American history," he says.
