    there isn't much he can do to avert taxes going up without the House. The House is also in charge of raising the debt ceiling and the last time this happened,  the president refused to invoke whatever amendment or executive priviliege might have been available to him to avoid the cliff.
    What we need to do is focus on our Senators- we have a majority there that can effect change on what's passed in the House.

    “We are not a nation that says ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ We are a nation that says ‘out of many, we are one.’” -Barack Obama
