Test yourself in the Fiscal Cliff Time Machine quiz

U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner testifies during a hearing July 26, 2012 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

TUESDAY:

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit."
