Overall, the Fiscal Cliff bill has positive bias IMHO.

Without it, taxes would have gone up for 100% of people by a lot. With the FC bill passing taxes will actually go down for seniors who are the most potent voting block. People earning on the lower end of middle class and lower, will pay more through expiration of the temporary 2% payroll tax reduction of last year. But most of them are Obama voters.

Congresscritter should be formally declared as THE definition for any sub-human piece of Obamastuff currently infesting D.C.

I shall leave it to the public as to how one chooses to treat a “critter.”

The Biden-McConnell deal:
— Tax rates will permanently rise to Clinton-era levels for families with income above $450,000 and individuals above $400,000. All income below the threshold will permanently be taxed at Bush-era rates.
— The tax on capital gains and dividends will be permanently set at 20 percent for those with income above the $450,000/$400,000 threshold. It will remain at 15 percent for everyone else. (Clinton-era rates were 20 percent for capital gains and taxed dividends as ordinary income, with a top rate of 39.6 percent.)
— The estate tax will be set at 40 percent for those at the $450,000/$400,000 threshold, with a $5 million exemption. That threshold will be indexed to inflation, as a concession to Republicans and some Democrats in rural areas like Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mt.).
— The sequester will be delayed for two months. Half of the delay will be offset by discretionary cuts, split between defense and non-defense. The other half will be offset by revenue raised by the voluntary transfer of traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs, which would tax retirement savings when they’re moved over.
— The pay freeze on members of Congress and all other federal civilian employees, which Obama had lifted this week, will be re-imposed, .
— The 2009 expansion of tax breaks for low-income Americans will be extending, continuing a more generous Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, and the American Opportunity Tax Credit.
— The Alternative Minimum Tax will be permanently patched to avoid raising taxes on the middle-class.
— The deal will not address the debt-ceiling, and the payroll tax holiday will be allowed to expire.
— Two limits on tax exemptions and deductions for higher-income Americans will be reimposed: Personal Exemption Phaseout (PEP) will be set at $250,000 and the itemized deduction limitation (Pease) kicks in at $300,000.
—The full package of temporary business tax breaks — benefiting everything from R&D and wind energy to race-car track owners — will be extended for another year.
— Scheduled cuts to doctors under Medicare would be avoided for a year through spending cuts that haven’t been specified.
— Federal unemployment insurance will be extended for another year, benefiting those unemployed for longer than 26 weeks. This $30 billion provision won’t be offset.
— A nine-month farm bill fix will be attached to the deal, Sen. Debbie Stabenow told reporters, averting the newly dubbed milk cliff.

Wrote my republican senator that voted yes. First time I was ever disrespectful, didn’t address him as senator. told him I was ashamed of him, hold him responsible in the destruction of our country, that when my family faces a financial shortfall we cut expenses and he should resign his seat and open a porn website. Felt good at the time...not so much now.

Congresscritter’s letter sounds like a small child trying to explain the presence of his hand in the coookie jar. Had he voted “NO” he could have sent out a simple, “You’re welcome”. Another untesticled coward in office...
