This IS according to the secret script that will run until AFTER the stuff hits the fan…..
THEN the players will resume….
Several things will occur I’m gonna guess….
The President will get little of what he wanted……(Biden i s now the deal maker)
Taxes WILL go up….
The Senate WILL pass a frame work….
The House will take most of that framework….
The frame work will essentially be a punt……
Like the Congress ALWAYS does….
There will NO REAL Fiscal Cliff…..
We will have the Same SHIT again in a few months on the Debt Ceiling….
This will assuer that the Republicans WILL drag Obama and the Democrats thru the mud….
Over and Over …….
Senate leaders are racing against the clock to reach a “fiscal cliff” deal the House and Senate can approve on New Year’s Eve.
Leaders in the upper chamber narrowed their differences Sunday as Republicans agreed to drop a demand to curb cost-of-living increases to entitlement benefits, while Democrats showed flexibility on taxes.
Yet after months of talks on ways to avoid the fiscal cliff of tax hikes and spending cuts at the end of 2012, House and Senate lawmakers find themselves approaching the new year without a bill to present to their members.
Hopes for a deal appear to be in the hands of Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Vice President Biden, who spent much of the night in negotiations.
“The Leader and the VP continued their discussion late into the evening and will continue to work toward a solution,” a spokesman for McConnell said of the talks. The spokesman added that more details would be provided when they were available.
Biden and McConnell have a history of Senate deal-making, and their cooperation is seen as a sign that Democrats and Republicans in the upper chamber could still close in on an elusive deal.
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) on Monday called McConnell and Biden the two “best” negotiators for the talks…..Share on Facebook
