Sorry boys. America went over the “cliff” a long time ago. We’re 16 trillion in debt headed for 20 trillion.
Yup! Any way you slice it, we’ve been screwed, glued, and tattooed.......
Guess they forgot about that 2% payroll tax hike.....on everyone including the middle class.
I can’t wait to see how the GOP-e protects the second amendment.
Gee, I just love congress now, especially the republicans, I mean, gee, they just have a way of caving in to the money changers
Only in the minds of sick media/politicians could you stave off tax hikes by raising taxes.
The only ‘CLIFF’ here is the one our government will go over if the debt ceiling isn’t raised. It is the one trump card the Republicans hold, and they could get anything they want for it. But sadly, Boehner has already announced in advance that he will fold on that one as well.
When too many Republicans stand up to oppose O (and Boner before him) on cutting our taxes while claiming they opposed tax increases its over.
I hope the GOP will understand if I don’t say thank you.
They avoided nothing....we’re going over the cliff, and now it will be that much worse when it happens.
Sometime in the future, somebody is going to have to explain to our grandchildren how these yahoos f’d everything up.
Wait a doggone minute. This bill orignated in the Senate and was then sent to the House. Last time I looked at the Constitution, it clearly said “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives ...” [Art I Sect 7]
This Bill is flat unconstitutional, and somebody should file suit to have it overturned.
I support it because of lack of better alternatives. Rich people pay more and every one pays less and the Bush Era tax cuts are made permanent.
The “fiscal cliff” deal isn’t everything I wanted but I’ll take what I can get now and fight for the rest later.
