Yeah, because everyone agrees the best route to curbing government spending is legalizing drugs.

You Big "L" Libertarians are a ****ing joke.

First of all, you KNOW they will cave. They always have and always will. Second, they shouldn't increase taxes under ANY circumstances.
Congress returned to "work" this week (now there's a laugh) to complete its lame-duck session before taking another holiday. Spending other people's money is a taxing experience.

Their task is to avoid the "fiscal cliff," a geological construct of their own making. It doesn't take a genius to predict both parties will try to do two things: (1) reach an agreement that will allow each side to take some credit and (2) require those who work for a living to pay government more while they come up with phony, or inconsequential spending "cuts."

Whatever they do, payroll taxes...
