The Gorilla is speaking...
Today, the Commission on the "Deficit"-"Debt"-"Needed Cuts" has NOT reached the number 14 members;
...the Commission is therefore disbanded;
...the Commission has nothing to 'send-to' the congress as a whole;
...the Commission has, however, begun the parade;
Senator Alan Sessions has interjected humor into this 9 Mo + commission;
..as co-chair, he has provided a message with his legendary humor;
..as usual, today he did NOT disappoint once again.
Sitting at the commission table, Sen. Alan Sessions summed it [progress] up this way:
" We threw a big banana into the Gorilla cage;
the Gorilla picked it up;
played with it;
& ate a little of it:
That is where we are today"
He is presently on his way back home. We wish him well.
Shortly afterwards, Lindsey Graham was asked to comment on this situation [no vote forward in Commission], to which he stated:
.." I don't know if the Gorilla[s] would like to be compared to members of Congress"
Fun way to end this non-action with a dose of humor.
As of this moment in time, there is or was a vote to take up the matter of voting [?] on the the Dec.31st ending of the Bush era Tax Cuts
Presently, the President having gone to Afghanistan overnight, is speaking to the troops there & to the TV audience so the screens have moved away from the vote process.
Whether a vote on the tax matter is taken today or tomorrow--the fact of the matter is that in order for a smooth transition or continuation of the tax code-process--this VOTE must be taken by December 8th, 2010.
