CNN breaking email on the fiscal cliff:
"White House officials said Thursday that President Barack Obama will not send a fiscal cliff measure to Capitol Hill, while Republicans insisted they were expecting more details on the president's proposal.
An aide to Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said the senator expected further details soon on what Obama and Democrats were proposing.
A Senate Democratic leadership member also said that more details would be provided. Both sources spoke to CNN on condition of not being identified further.
However, two White House officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the president was not sending a proposal to Congress.
Such parsing of words and interpretations showed the high political sensitivity over how the fiscal cliff negotiations are being portrayed to the public.
House leaders announced the chamber would reconvene on Sunday and could stay in session through January 2, before a new Congress gets sworn in on January 3."
There are only two types of people in the world: those who think there are only two types of people, and those who don't.

1. Hey, Boner and McTurtle - do your fucking jobs for once
instead of just waiting for and rejecting proposals from the president.
Spreading Republican propaganda at DU for 12 years . Besides wanting the government to tell me who they're spying on, I also want socialized medicine, stronger environmental laws, capped CEO pay, and a $15.00 minimum wage. Libertarian???
