As we await the arrival of a promising new congressional class let's make sure we support the democrats as the try to take advantage of the pressure that the "fiscal cliff" is putting on republicans. As Boehner, Cantor and McConnell prattle on about protecting job creators from tax hikes I think we should point out that they are really asking to extend a Bush era Tax Holiday! It's up to us to make sure it joins the list of holiday's that will have passed come January. End the tax holiday for the wealthy!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    thanks to jroth and Steve Kornacki that among the best things we can do to get the outcome we want is to stop calling it a cliff, cuz it just is not. It's a gentle downward slope. IOW, all hell won't break loose on Jan 1. There is time to deal with this in a way that is fiscally responsible and that means sunsetting the Bush tax cuts and then re-instituting them for those earning under 250K.

    We need for Ed and Rachel and Lawrence and the whole gang, Dem pols included, to stop calling it a cliff. That only feeds a false meme that works against us.

    Ds see human suffering and wonder what they can do to relieve it. Rs see human suffering and wonder how they can profit from it.
