Call your Congressmen today. Tell them to go over the fiscal cliff and shut down non-essential govt to force entitlement and retroactive tax reform so Obama can get more to spend beyond what revenue we are bringing in. All cronyism should end including the Farm Bill (which is in this "deal") and the repeal of previous market manipulations and subsidies before the current version. When defunding programs, the default should be no govt market manipulation and devolution to the States, commerce, charity and the individual their Constitutional rights and responsibilities.
Today the House is considering the Senate "deal" passed early this morning by the Senate. I can only hope that Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy have learned something about why they lost this past election and not only go over the cliff but deeply and immediately cut thru the debt ceiling, forcing entitlement reform in order for Obama to spend anything beyond entitlements and military operations, the Courts and Jails.
See the "Extenders". Failure is subsidized, cronyism is rift thru out from progressive holly wood propoganda to green energy ponzi schemes to money launder our money back to politicians. Just read the first couple of pages to see how bad this is.
Starting on page 2 for the pleasure of not being pillaged:
