Tele, there are so many things wrong with you post (beginning with its opening cite of a breitbart.com blog, which cites a "tweet" as its source) that I won't even attempt to set the record straight, except to say that the vast majority of the increased revenues (relative to extending the status quo ante as of Dec. 31) come from the ending of the tax holiday on Social Security withholding ... which the GOP insisted on ending, not the Dems.And, of course, if one really wanted "fiscal responsibility," the thing to do would have been to go over the "cliff" rather than even try to bargain with the Tea Bag-dominated House Goppers.Look to cbo.gov if you want the primary information rather than some right-wing prismatic mash-up of it.My New Year's resolution is not to respond to your every misstatement or misinterpretation. That would be a full-time job, and I am beginning my first year of semi-retirement.Having said that, I suspect that if you and I sat down at a pub and talked, we'd find that we have more than a few things in common, including our deep concern for the structural gap in the federal budget.Happy 2013 to all! Aloha!Fungi (as in "Fun guy")
