The real problem is that half of those who are not working actually prefer to rather than live a life of poverty via handouts in the Democrat's welfare dependency for votes program, and on unemployment. But under Owebummer there isn't much choice; the loser has a net loss of jobs since taking office, and after blowing trillions chancing them; he sucks.

But, I don't fully blame Owebummer; his Dem crony cohorts in Congress also share a lot of the blame.

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....
