If no fiscal cliff agreement is met, middle class families will be hit

with one comment

This video from informs viewers about what will happen if a fiscal cliff agreement is not met soon. The segment shows a family of three and the mother, director of a non-profit organization, discusses money issues. The video shows the average figure of how much extra families could have to pay in taxes. I feel the video had a huge impact because I’ve been hearing stuff about this “fiscal cliff” but it didn’t really hit me until I saw this video. It seemed more realistic and hit closer to home. Unfortunately, I had trouble uploading it, so I had to link it.

  1. Good example of using a video story to make a complex issue simpler. By using one family as an example and mixing that example in with data, it makes the whole story of the “fiscal cliff” easier for the average person to understand. That’s just what a good video story should do.
