The GOP House chose not to vote on Rep. Boehner's "Plan B" proposal tonight, choosing instead to leave for the holidays with no solution to the fiscal cliff.
Watching a bit of each channel tonight I turned on FOX long enough to watch Sean Hannity, gleeful that the country is now on the verge of going over the fiscal cliff, saying: [sic]"we need to punish American voters for their decision in November".
In the next hour Newt Gingrich is on, smiling and laughing.
Are they serious? Is it truly the strategy - as much as a party with a speaker who cannot get his own members to even vote on their own bill - to "punish" American voters for exercising their franchise, by turning a 3% Q1 2013 economic growth into a 3.9% economic contraction (as per the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office)?
Consider this a flabergastedly Open Thread.
