thank god someone points this out occasionally, the demtard freelance arbitrary definitions for words is a constant source or extream prejudice for me. You are entitled to your own oppinions not facts, or definitions of words. Once a tax-cut proposal is passed it is no longer a tax cut, it is the current level of taxation, allowing it to expire is a tax increase. Bravo NW-Res

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, but fiscal cliff discussion between Republicans and Democrats has already started and will continue after the Holiday weekend. As you can imagine things aren't going so well, which means we are more likely to see some kind of deal not in the next couple weeks, but just before or on Christmas.

The opening round of negotiations this week between White House and senior GOP congressional staffers left both sides pessimistic about their ability to reach a quick deal on averting the fiscal cliff, according to sources familiar with the talks.
