    to vote on the fiscal cliff. Yes, it's early but I called my congressmen today. I say plural because one expires on 12/31/12. I live in an Illinois CD that will switch over to a different district come New Years.

    Today I decided to call the one who's going away as well as the one we're getting. I asked their staff where they sit in reference to making the tax cuts on the middle class permanent while raising those of the 2%.

    In both instances, the staff members hemmed and hawed. One said he had a statement from his boss somewhere but was unable to find it. After being put on hold, he came back to say that the congressman actually did not have a position at this point. The second call yielded the same final answer.

    Oh, did I memtion that these bozos were Republicans? Yes, they don't want us to know where they stand on the issues. So  it's time to force them to stand. Hopefully Pelosi will force a vote on the middle class tax cuts with the petition. That will put the pugs on their back foot before Barack hits them with the combo!

    While not all republicans are bigots, all bigots are republicans.
