Roubini : There is not going to be a Grand Bargain on spending cuts and Revenue Increases

Nouriel Roubini : For the U.S., we have kicked the cliff down the road. we have the debt ceiling issue. We have a sequester issue. We have a continued resolution issue. I think they're going to kick the can further down the road. There's not going to be a grand bargain on spending cuts and revenue increases.
