Each year comes with its own resolutions of things that you would like to happen in your life as well as predictions of things that will happen in the world around us. Here is a list of the top ten predictions for 2013.
10. No Grand Bargain Will Be Reached
There will not be a grand bargain reached in 2013 for neither tax reform or entitlement reform. It is clear that the Republicans are not going to allow this to pass through anytime soon regardless of the progress that was made with the fiscal cliff negotiations.
9. The Development of Immigration Reform
One area that both parties will have to agree needs major legislation in 2013 is that of immigration reform. The Republicans need to boost their own image a little more in this area than the Democrats, so they will be more than willing to agree on this particular area.
8. The Return of the Euro Crisis
Even though it may have seemed to get better in 2012, the Euro crisis is sure to become a serious issue once again in 2013. There clearly will be no sort of exits from the Euro this year. Even though there will be some key elections in Italy, Greece, Portugal and Spain are still trouble spots that will have to be seriously considered.
7. Hillary Clinton’s Big Announcement
At some point this year, Hillary Clinton is going to publicly declare her intention and goal to run for the office of President in the 2016 election. Even if she doesn’t announce it outright, she will make it apparently clear that she is seriously considering it.
