Agreed about kicking the can down the road. The debt ceiling is the real debate that's yet to happen in an effective manner with sustainable solutions. However, it's better than nothing because without the deal passed before the 1st, millions of middle and lower income people would have automatically started to pay higher taxes and would have initiated a slow double-dip recession.

But Obama is not around to take your calls. He is headed back to Hawaii. He left last night. The trip on Air Force One will take 18 hours.
While you boast about the political success of your illegal immigrant and illegally seated POTUS, you and I will be paying an average of $1635 more in taxes this year.
And Congress still got a pay raise.
Happy New Year
Just look at how the stock market reacted today - if anyone had any common sense, they would have made a small windfall in a matter of seconds this morning.
So you can't blame Obama and the Senate for passing something in spite of Congress.
The President was not back from his vacation, he was merely taking a break from a vacation to look after urgent business. Which reiterates what I've said before - as POTUS, you never get to take a vacation and chill out on a beach like the Hollywood types. You're working most if not all the time. You're merely in a different place with different people, but you're still working..
The rest of your post is birther nonsense which indicates that your intellectual development is on par with an adult hamster, which I don't have time to respond to..
