got to remenber or learn how congress works. house passes a bill. then senate passes a bill. if they are not the same bill they go into commitee. that is where the compromise is worked out. so if the dems wish to put something out in the senate they need to go ahead. Not just ask the house to fall on its sward for the sudo messiah. Harry the man has not even brought anything out of commitee to start working on this mess the white house got us into.

The White House has been hyping its #My2K Twitter hashtag in an attempt to galvanize supporters to contact their Congressional representatives to demand action to avert the fiscal cliff.  The administration estimates that unless Congress moves, the average family's tax bill will jump by more than $2,000, starting on the first of January.  The implication, of course, is that Republicans are once again standing in the way of resolving this problem.  Show of hands -- as the media breathlessly follows every minor twist and turn of these negotiations, how many of you have seen this fact reported?
