The Senate passed the fiscal cliff deal 89-8 and now it's up to the House to ratify it so we can move onto the next manufactured crises like raising the debt ceiling. I have every confidence that the House of Representatives will find a way to screw this up.
One crises after another that could be avoided if Congress would just do
it's job. Many of my friends like to quote the founding fathers to
justify the obstruction of the Republican party in the House and Senate
but they forget that our system of government is designed that no one
person or group of people can get their way all the time. You have to make a deal. See the Connecticut Compromise.
