Flim Flam Fiscal Cliff Legislation
Congress enacted scam legislation.
by Stephen Lendman
Senate members met, debated, negotiated, passed stopgap legislation, and largely delayed deficit cutting for later.
On Tuesday, the House followed suit. Obama will sign it into law or may already have done so.
Media reports announced it. The New York Times headlined "Senate Passes Legislation to Allow Taxes on Affluent to Rise." Members voted 89-8.
The Washington Post said "Obama, Senate Republicans reach agreement on 'fiscal cliff.' "
The Wall Street Journal headlined "US Budget Compromise Deal Reached."
