The White House issued a "fact sheet" statement Tuesday declaring the fiscal cliff agreement a victory, though the House has yet to vote on the measure.
"At this make or break moment for the middle class, the President achieved a bipartisan solution that keeps income taxes low for the middle class and grows the economy," the statement says. "For the first time in 20 years, Congress will have acted on a bipartisan basis to vote for significant new revenue.

I’d be celebrating too if I were Obama.
He got everything he wanted.
** BASTARD SENATE REPUBLICANS **
Bipartisan solution, my rear.
Our continuing problem....strong enemies and weak friends.
Well, it could have been $100 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases and the results would have been the same....the tax increases would have been immediate and the spending cuts would never happen. S.O.P. for the Socialist Fascist Party.
Maybe I’m misinformed, but I thought there was a House of Rep. that had to pass it before it became law, or will it just become an EO if they vote against it?
elections do matter. we lost big and are paying the price.
If the House does pass this tax class-warfare increase, it will be a White House victory - and an American defeat.
“For the first time in 20 years, Congress will have acted on a bipartisan basis to vote for significant new revenue.”

It looks like tribal and class warfare is going to work out very well for the Democrats in this country. That “united we stand” gig is a thing of the past in this country. The Me, Me, Me “american” has arrived.
0bama’s mission is to ensure irreversible debt. He’s doing a fine job of that.
Bonehead is too worried about keeping his power.
He could care less about the country.
here’s Paul Ryan’s opportunity to step up and lead.....with Rubio by his side.

Can anyone actually read this Senate "agreement"? I suspect there is a poison pill in it, a clause so outrageous that the Republicans in the House have to kill it. The deal collapses, we go over the cliff (what Obama wanted all along) and Republicans get the blame from now on for every economic ill that's inflicted on the public (and we all know there'll be plenty).
Then there'll be a two-year campaign to throw those right-wing obstructionists out of the House. Come January of 2014 the Dems control all three branches of gov't.
