Once upon a time there were two men who were barren, but brought a bunch of infants to a great king, claiming that the infants were theirs and that the King should give them the credit of the infants. The King dangled the infants over a balcony so the press could see. One man claimed he would not use the credit, the other claimed he would use it, but to save the Kings source of capital for which none of the people involved where ever held liable to repay, but the infants upon their maturity. And this is the manner of the Kingdom. There is no moral to the story.

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....
