Anyone paying attention to the goat rodeo formerly known as the House of Representatives knew, before noon on Thursday, that Republicans were screwed. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_...cal_cliff_house_republicans_fear_outside.html So, over the cliff (curb) we go. Taxes go up on everyone. Then, end of January, the senate will propose their own bill to give the tax reduction from Bush back to those making under $250K in taxable income. So, what do the repubs do then??
