I find it absolutely hilarious when Repubs call on the President to show some "leadership" on the fiscal cliff. The Constitution that they claim to worship in it's original form clearly states that all spending is to originate in the House. Spending bills then go to the Senate for agreement and finally to the chief executive (the President) for his signature.

Now I know in today's world that we do expect the President to take the lead, I'm just pointing out the Constitutional requirements and wondering.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS-01), along with Rep. Raúl Labrador (ID-01), Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-04) and Rep. Steve King (IA-05), discussed the future of the GOP, as well as a host of policy issues they will face as members of the 113th Congress. The Heritage...
