More than just tax rates at stake if no deal on fiscal cliff

With the fiscal cliff just six days away, Americans are anxious about what their taxes are going to look like in the New Year.

But it's not just our taxes that are at stake.

OutFront tonight: Reihan Salam, CNN contributor and writer for the "National Review," CNN contributor Roland Martin, and Republican Strategist Ana Navarro.
