A Fiscal Endgame

If Congressional Republicans would only act sensibly, a sensible deal could be reached.

According to Wikipedia, an endgame in chess is reached when there are only a few pieces left; in a card game when only a few cards are left. 

As of 8:35 pm, December 31, 2012, ¬†Eastern Standard Time, MSNBC announced that an “apparent” deal has been made in the Senate.

As of 9:30pm the House had been adjourned.

January 2, 2013

The Senate passed a bill to resolve “The Fiscal Cliff'” early in the morning on January 1, 2013.

The House concurred with the Senate bill early in the morning of January 2, 2013.

There is still work to be done.
