According to people briefed on the talks, the developing package would protect nearly 30 million taxpayers from paying the alternative minimum tax for the first time and keep unemployment benefits flowing to 2 million people who otherwise would be cut off in January.

The deal also would likely halt a steep cut in Medicare reimbursements set to hit doctors in January and preserve popular tax breaks for both businesses and individuals, such as those for research and college tuition

Obama gets a fraudulent “solution”, conservatives gets castigated, and the media praises Obama as a hero.

All of this would have happened regardless of the outcome.

“As the Senate began haggling over critical details, the emerging deal faced an uncertain fate in the House, where Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) failed just one week ago to persuade his adamantly anti-tax caucus to let taxes rise even for millionaires. “


bullsh!t- wasn’t the plan they voted down, plan B, was a tax the millionaires now and work on spending cuts later??? someone correct me if i’m wrong...

Just as we predicted. Last minute, kicking the can down the road.

What a bunch of losers. Thanks, America, for keep voting these B******* in.

That was my first thought. Any deal that Obama agrees to will screw working America.

There is no deal until representatives representing real taxpayer voters and real slouching takers vote on it in the house. The current make up, with more taxpayer reps than obamaphonite reps, should indicate there is no deal on a kick the can down the road approach, as “President Obama and Senate leaders were on the verge of an agreement” officials might have agreed. Hopefully that ‘should’ translates to a ‘will’.

Indeed, any “agreement” here at the end of the year should be viewed in context of 2012 - an agreement in the summer, passed in the house, didn’t go further in the Senate. Any agreement today is in the realm of Chicago voting - vote after vote until reaching the desired result: higher taxes, no change (or, an increase) on spending.

From “fiscal clift” plan to “fiscal cave” plan. Harry Reid is writing this one just like he wrote ObamaCare. What bill passed by the House is going to get a total rewrite this time. For ObamaCare I believe it was veterans bill that got Harry’s substitute ammendment.

Reading the whole article it doesn’t sound like there’s much agreement on a ‘deal’ at all.

... let taxes rise on the wealthiest households while protecting the vast majority of Americans from historic tax hikes...

It's not possible to pee in just one part of a pool. Raise taxes on one, raise taxes on all. It's that simple.

” his adamantly anti-tax caucus to let taxes rise even for millionaires. “

What is scary is that they don’t even try to hide their bias.

All I see is a petty dictator telling his generals to get in line.

"Agreement within reach on ‘fiscal cliff’ deal, officials say."

Wow, I feel so much better now. Oh thank you wise Holy Ones of the US Government, ah, I mean Democrat Party. You are all so sagacious and pure and I know you all really, really care about us.
