are you happy that the idiots in Washington finally reached a deal on the fiscal cliff?

i wonder what scare tactics are next

Furious that it took so long. They are here to serve us. Not their political career. I’m angry at the obstructionist tactics of the Republicans and frustrated at the lack of deal making capacity of the Dems. It took Biden with 35+ years of experience to make it happen. He worked 18 hour days while congress went home. This is a big deal. They should have brought their overnight jammies and sleeping bags if that is what it took. And they should have done it weeks ago. This is nonsense. Every American should be outraged.

I have lost faith in the American voter who elects these idiots. Term limits now for all in congress, no raises, no pensions.

Agreed. They should all be on probation.

No doubt! I know I am outraged.

Biden is a mental dynamo and far craftier than his boss. That's where experience counts.

I don't know what's wrong with those people. They are like children who put off an assignment until the last minute. If you can do it in one day, you can do a better job with two weeks, months, etc. It's just theatrics to fool low information voters, in my opinion.

Let's see: the Senate finally agreed with the President, at the last minute, and struck a deal that may or may not get approved by the House. odd it took so long, the Senate is run by the Dems...
The House isn't even going to get to vote on it until later this week. So, technically the cliff jump will happen, and it's up to the House to connect the bungee to something secure. If it fails to approve the bill, we will have a short fall and a jarring hard stop at the bottom.

The deal they made works and is as useful as the " little" spare tire you get with your car these days . It will get you around for a while but not too reliable on a long trip.
