Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Wednesday offered an amendment to force a vote on President Obama’s deficit-reduction plan, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was having none of it.
“Last week [Treasury] Secretary [Timothy] Geithner brought up a proposal that was so unserious,” McConnell said on the floor, “I would like to see if my Democratic friends would like to support it.”

Who's the obstructionists again????

Reid says he's busy working on a "jobs bill" just like all the other times he's tabled bills.
This one is a Russian trade bill.

After elections he didn't want to deal with the fiscal cliff issues because they were busy debating bear carcasses in Alaska.

Congress has turned into a sham. They are afraid to deal with the debt so they don't.
How much longer can we keep spending and kicking that can down the road ?

The complete lack of leadership and willingness to do any kind of work on the issue will lead to the expiration of the tax cuts that were brought to you by Republicans in the White House and Congress in the early 2000s. Remember that when you open your first paychecks in January. Thanks Obama. Elections have consequences.
