Whatever is cobbled together by Harry Reid and Mitch "I am digging a ditch" McConnell will be defined as "ineffective" as it relates to elimination/reduction of our Federal Government's addictive runaway spending/taxation habits. Appointing successful businessmen, entrepreneurs and accountants to draw up a workable plan would at least take the politics out of the current morass which this country finds itself wallowing in. Congress today is nothing more than an embarrassing joke....

UPDATE: Senator Harry Reid appeared on the floor of the Senate this evening announcing that there would be no vote tonight. He said that they will reconvene Monday morning at 11am. “There’s still significant distance between the two sides, but negotiations continue,” Reid said. “There’s still time left to reach an agreement, and we intend to continue negotiations.” With only one day left of the year, it is looking like a very slim chance the two sides can come together to reach a fiscal cliff deal.

UPDATE: Republicans have taken the CPI off the table in an effort to help negotiations....
