12/5 Sam Takes on the Fiscal Cliff and the Still Insane GOP

December 5, 2012

Sam held it down on his own today, explained what is really happening with the fiscal cliff, praised Obama and Pelosi for holding firm on tax increases for the top two percent, but worried that hacks like Steny Hoyer keep calling for cuts in Medicare and Social Security and checked in on the latest in Republican insanity

On The Better Half: can you negotiate with the GOP? In sad news Karl Rove and Dick Morris are benched on Fox News, Dick Army leaves Freedom Works, Roger Ailes begged David Petraeus to run for President and Murdoch would have bankrolled his run, Cory Booker: nice guy and corporatist and Sam schools a young Libertarian on the purpose of education.

And keep the conversation going on the morning thread!
