WASHINGTON (AP) A Democratic aide says the White House and congressional Republicans have reached an agreement to avert the so-called fiscal cliff.
The measure would extend Bush-era tax cuts for family incomes below $450,000 and briefly avert across-the-board spending cuts set to strike the Pentagon and domestic agencies this week.

call GOP Congressmen , tell them not to vote for this nor any deal , go over the news medias stupid cliff(which is not a cliff):
Congress switchboard number: (202) 224-3121.
I wonder why the Democrats are leaking it now through an anonymous spokesman rather than officially announcing it.
...and like good little sheep, the GOPe will fall for it.
I’m calling my congresspeople but my hopes are not high.
Probably because it’s a lie.
Let Ubama drive us over the imaginary "fiscal cliff."
Let him own it.
If true, and the Republicans have shafted those with incomes above $450,000.00, they are dead as a party.
You might want to think about calling RATs too.
Because that is who will carry this bill over the finish line.
Yep. Rinos and Rats.
That’s a good idea, except if the deal is already done.
They might be leaking this now to increase the pressure.
So, now they will hit the week after next?
Cause that’s how they officially announce everything.
Phony cliff, phony deal.
Then too the President probably already has his
jammies on and is ready for bed.
It’s the liberal Dems that are upset with the deal and holding it up. The Obama cheerleaders on CNN don’t know what to make of a Commie Senator from Oregon who’d rather go over the cliff than accept this deal.
I’m not in that income arena however I know doctors who are and who will cut back on services and hours to avoid getting tax raped.
Me: We don’t make over $450k, do we?
Wife: No but the man I passed up to marry you makes that much.
Me: (stares at her across the room)
“Yep. Rinos and Rats.”
Is there a difference?
“If true, and the Republicans have shafted those with incomes above $450,000.00, they are dead as a party.”
That was the media’s plan.
Since the election the news media has been blasting this “fiscal cliff” BS all over in a massive propaganda campaign. It’s all to get Republicans to agree to raise taxes. THEN the media/democrats can tell conservative voters “see Republicans raised taxes” so then conservatives give up on GOP and then the Democrats take the House and then pass Amnesty , gun control etc.
this “fiscal cliff” is all a media fabrication , a plan to destroy the GOP ( oppossition to democrats).
The media/democrats did this to Bush 1 “read my lips no new taxes”.
Most of the Dr’s I know make less than $300k taxable income because they shelter income.
