Gingrich did a good job of outlining an approach on Greta Van Susteren’s show. Break the ‘cliff’ into separate ‘foothills’ and put forth legislation on each...then let the Senate pass or not pass it. Do it in the OPEN. But do it now. Breaking it up into smaller pieces is a better way to tackle large problmes, will draw distinctions that can be articulated WELL into the media and keeps a single monstrosity bill from being drafted/negotiated/passed behind closed doors and in the middle of the night. I’m sick of this holiday crisis that they pull each year. Sick of it.
He is right,
Bohner took over the House then (in each crisis) pulled the same crap that that he was critical of Dems for :Crafting a bill in secret and then twisting arms to get quick passage , worse yet with Pelosi’s blessing.
They wont do it because they agree on little individually, but the House must extend just some of those tax cuts or they will be crusified for once again trying to raise taxes on the middle class.
The budget control act from last year ended up a noose around Ryan's neck as a VP candidate,
