  •  The fiscal cliff deal is supposed to be all about (10+ / 0-)

    the big scary deficit and out-of-control government spending.

    Right now, all around DC there are hourly government workers on the clock. Why? Because unlike high school students, Congress thinks it does not have to meet deadlines, including deadlines it sets for itself.

    So when working people should be home with their families, they're working. And they're earning overtime, and in a few minutes' time, holiday pay, which of course, they should be.

    But if these Republican "leaders" REALLY were as worried about government spending as they say they are, they would have wrapped all this up during normal office hours.
