Say Yes to the Mess  —  The fiscal cliff deal that the Senate passed early this morning is ridiculous in too many ways to count.  There seem to be no figures from the Congressional Budget Office and only “very preliminary” figures from the Joint Tax Committee about the real spending and revenue implications.

Part 1 of the Fiscal Cliff is Over.  Now Gird Yourself for Part 2.  —  The fiscal cliff is dead.  Long live the fiscal cliff.  —  It's over.  Sort of.  The Senate voted 89-8 to prevent middle-class taxes from rising while allowing rates to increase for taxpayers with incomes over $450,000.
