Hey gang, I’m STILL nursing a cough/cold that will not let me go. This marks the week and a half mark. The cough (mild at first) started Monday the 19th, the sore throat started Thanksgiving, and hasn’t let up since. Really don’t want to go to the doctor as they’ll tell me what I already […]

What are *Democrats* willing to put on the “fiscal cliff” table?

I’m reading a lot about what prominent Republicans in Congress are saying they’re willing to compromise on when it comes to avoiding toppling over the so-called “fiscal cliff” but not much from Democrats.
