    no vote necessary - unless the Republicans can vote January 2nd off the calender, and override a veto.

    Has nothing to do with negoiations in congress, neither tiny Tim or Maobama get to vote on them. Limited input maybe, not a vote. But nice try at the deflection there comrade.

    Only stupid people (that means most Americans) will believe those new taxes will go to anybody else but the Bankers that run this country.

    Income Taxes pay only the INTEREST on the National Debt which is owned by Bankers so naturally they'd want the rates to go up. Only ignorant people think that money is gonna be used to pay off debt or on the American people in any way, shape or form.

    Meanwhile the dumbed down, Public School "Edumacated" populace argues over the false Left/Right paradigm (perpetrated by Fox and CNN) that they think is gonna' help them. It won't.

    You're about to be led to slaughter.
