Cliff Report

There are reports, including this one from the Washington Post, that say a compromise is near on the fiscal cliff talks and that Speaker Boehner is willing to go for some of President Obama’s insistence on tax hikes.

Well, hope springs eternal and all that, but I will believe it when I see it and when I see the Republicans in the House of Representatives, which heretofore has been about as interested in supporting anything the president comes up with as they are to a dose of the clap, actually do it.
