Obama's head swells as McConnell and Biden are close to a bad deal. No spending cuts, just tax increases. Democraps claim billions in spending cuts have been already made but they are just smoke and mirrors like the cut termed "interest savings". Obama further implied no reforms would be made to SS or Medicare - no cuts, no age increases. And, unbelievably, the revenue this deal is raising from the rich is just going to go to MORE SPENDING!! Can you believe it? What a joke. Maybe they can claim the fiscal cliff has been averted but the "Demise of America" train is chugging away right on track.
