The headline is ridiculous, if the Republicans had rejected the ‘fiscal cliff’ bill, it would not have passed.

I’m scratching my head a little here. I’m sure in the minority, but on the tax side alone... the republicans did pretty well.

The temporary Bush tax cuts are now permanent. The rich got redefined from $250K to $450K. And yes, their taxes went up — to Clinton era levels. They still are much lower than they were during the Reagan years.

The payroll tax cut (which was a terrible idea to begin with, since it funded SS from general tax receipts, which basically meant the rich were funding the difference) went away.

This is by no means perfect. And we got screwed on the spending side (for now). But on the tax side, given the outcome of the election, I don’t see how we could have done much better.

I have already emailed my Critter, K. Brady, Tx 8th, of my disappointment with him and that I will actively support a primary opposition candidate.

How can anyone be surprised? This played out exactly as scripted and we’ll get to see act two in February and March as they all wring their goddam hands over what to do about the so-called ‘debt ceiling’! What a JOKE!

Enough for it to pass, and that is all that matters.
