Kabuki . . . or kareoke?

plan b

House Speaker John Boehnerís (R-Ohio) Plan B was a bomb this evening. In fact, the compromise legislation ó which was under the shadow of a veto threat anyway ó didnít even make it to the floor due to a lack of GOP support.

Says Boehner:

"The House did not take up the tax measure today because it did not have sufficient support from our members to pass. Now it is up to the president to work with Senator Reid on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff. The House has already passed legislation to stop all of the January 1 tax rate increases and replace the sequester with responsible spending cuts that will begin to address our nationís crippling debt. The Senate must now act."

The House is now adjourned until after Christmas. The fiscal cliff just keeps coming closer.

Your cliff notes for this evening.

Me?

Neither kabuki nor karaoke, thanks all the same.

I'm going to bed.
