Breaking the yule logjam on Capitol Hill

Washington (CNN) - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Washington. Call it bipartisanship, political necessity or a burning desire to get home for the holidays.

A yule logjam of legislation on taxes, spending and a hot-button social issue might be breaking in an anything-but-tame lame duck session of Congress.

    Cut spending reduce deficit may be it will take another 234 years to reduce deficit

    I have to work two jobs to balance my budget and save for rainy day

    Our government reduces the income for another 2 years

    Once they add 900 billion to deficit they don’t want to work

    They will all simply leave, with Reid holding the bag. They aren't going to give up their holidays to please Reid.

  3. Democrats Class Warfare - Destroying the economy and country

    Nothing new here... Just the same old INCOMPETENT DemocRATS delaying all this stuff for political reasons, then trying DESPERATELY to jam their entire leftist agenda down our throats before they get thrown out. This is EXACTLY what the Republicans warned about before the election. The DemocRATS don't care what the American people want and the DemocRATS continue to show utter contempt for the voters. These people are DANGEROUS.
