Stalling Fiscal Cliff Negotiations

Reid will continue to stall; do nothing except allow the Bush tax cuts to expire, which will hit the lowest tax bracket with the highest percentage of an increase, while Owebummer still fails to lead. Owebummer has proven to be nothing but the Dem's rubberstamp when they had the majorities in both houses of Congress, and now has amounted to nothing more than Reid's peon.

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....
