Thanks cal for the link to the article by Bill Chappell and Scott Neuman. I honestly don't think that Speaker Boehner will be able to get anything passed but will wait and see. Read and noted.

Yay! The Senate and our President actually are doing their jobs! Too bad the Tea Partiers inn Congress have the OBSTRUCTIONIST AGENDA and are of no value.

About 20 minutes ago from the New York Times:

Ending a climactic fiscal showdown in the final hours of the 112th Congress, the House late Tuesday passed and sent to President Obama legislation to avert tax increases on most Americans and prevent large cuts in spending for the Pentagon and other government programs.

The measure, brought to the House floor less than 24 hours after its passage in the Senate, passed 257 to 167, with 85 Republicans joining 172 Democrats in voting to allow incomes taxes to rise for the first time in two decades. The bill is expected to be signed quickly by Mr. Obama.
