The Republicans Have Now Agreed To Raise Taxes For The Entire Country

• Business Insider

That's not surprising. Unfortunately, it always seemed unlikely that our politicians would agree to any vote that could be framed as them having voted to "raise taxes" — which any deal before December 31 could have been framed as.

The more likely scenario seemed to be that politicians would wait until taxes increased automatically on January 1 and then heroically vote to cut them — at least some of them.
And that's still my bet about what will happen in January.

Yes, but by their inactions they have also "agreed" to actual cuts in spending.  Not huge ones.  But for the first time since the Tea Taster was fired, real ones. 

It won't last even until the middle of January I suspect, until they back pay every one of those parasites who will be given "unpaid" leave.  But it will be the only real action to deal with the astronomical debt any political body in Wash. DC will ever make.  Savor the moment, don't whine about it.  Across the board taxes are inevitable form the rapists and robbers who plunder this county.  Learn to enjoy that too.
