Fiscal Cliff Deal Made But It Seems Like Few Are Happy
It could be said that Congress and the President made a deal at the eleventh hour, but it was actually made after we went over the cliff. Still, the bill passed both houses of Congress and the President is set to sign it, even though he is back in Hawaii with his family. How will he pull it off? Enter the autopen.
In the aftermath, we find out several things are happening. First, the Senate had exactly three minutes to read the 154 page bill before they voted on it. Then, we find out that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was very upset with Speaker Boehner after he cancelled a vote on a Hurricane Sandy relief bill. Now, it seems like the Speaker is facing trouble from his own party and might not even be Speaker for too much longer.
In the end, a deal was made and taxes will still go up for most of us.
What do you think of the deal? Good or bad? Let us know in the comments section below.
