This is a terrible bill.
The U.S.A is a dictatorship with the news media as the dictators.
The new media created this “fiscal cliff” bs. And now they have these congressmen on a holiday rush voting for this bs to avoid a non-existent media created cliff. All this under the direction of the media. I bet none of these congressmen even read the bill that is being voted on.
Stop looking for boogey men. This whole problem is the sole creation of the GOP. It started when Bush agreed to make his tax cuts temporary. Then it was made worse when Bohner made the shitty deal to increase the debt ceiling. The GOP have retreated time and time again. THAT’S why we’re all where we are.
You give far too much credit to the media.
No, the “News Media” doesn’t run the country. The “News Media” is owned by the dictators. They just spread the propaganda the dictators tell them to spread.
