There will be no fiscal sanity until Obama leaves office. If we can ever recover depends on how much the House can block in the next four years.

[ In a late-night email, Marino said, "Today I voted to keep tax rates low for hard-working, middle class families and family-owned small businesses.]

Which was also a Vote to continue the ever growing budget deficit..!

Am I the only one that understands the meaning of the words " Temporary & Cut" ..?

And that * ending * the Cut is not an Increase.
