NEWSMAX The tax-and-spending bill approved by Congress represents nothing but a flawed approach to the budget, according to a Wall Street Journal editorial. "The Senate-White House compromise grudgingly passed by the House is a Beltway classic: the biggest tax increase in 20 years in return for spending increases, and all spun for political purposes as a 'tax cut for the middle class,'" Journal editors write...

TIMOTHY P. CARNEY The "fiscal cliff" legislation passed this week included $76 billion in special-interest tax credits for the likes of General Electric, Hollywood and even Captain Morgan. But these subsidies weren't the fruit of eleventh-hour lobbying conducted on the cliff's edge -- they were crafted back in August in a Senate committee, and they sat dormant until the White House reportedly insisted on them this week...

MICHELLE MALKIN President Obama will kick off the new year the same way that he kicked off the old year: by demanding that the wealthy pay their "fair share" in taxes. But while millions of small-business owners, struggling entrepreneurs, inventors and investors brace for a double whammy of fiscal cliff tax hikes and new Obamacare taxes, the class-warrior in chief's richest pals are getting a pass...

FRANK GAFFNEY Members of the U.S. Senate surely are tempted to give their insufferably arrogant colleague from Massachusetts a pass in confirmation hearings for his nomination to become the next secretary of state. Quite apart from the tradition of senatorial courtesy practiced in the exclusive club once known as "the world's greatest deliberative body," most of them must be anxious to see John F. Kerry leave it... (more)

WALL STREET JOURNAL Congress broke a rancorous stalemate Tuesday to pass legislation designed to avert the so-called fiscal cliff. But the compromise bill, which blocked most impending tax increases and postponed spending cuts largely by raising taxes on upper-income Americans, left a host of issues unresolved and guaranteed continued budget clashes between the parties...

WASHINGTON TIMES Tuesday's vote to avoid the "fiscal cliff" exposed a deep rift within the House GOP that ran from the rank-and-file all the way to the very top of the party. House Speaker John A.

ALAN KEYES "What's the matter with the place?" said Merry ... "We grows a lot of food, but we don't rightly know what becomes of it. It's all these 'gatherers' and 'sharers,' I reckon. Going round counting and measuring and taking off to storage. They do more gathering than sharing, and we never see most of the stuff again." (Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Part III, Chapter 8, "The Scouring of the Shire")... (more)

JOSEPH FARAH Can anyone in Washington define "assault weapon"? Can Barack Obama? Can Dianne Feinstein? It is a meaningless term designed by people like Feinstein, who would prefer to ban all or most firearms, specifically to confuse the public. Yesterday, Obama said on "Meet the Press" that he would work hard on banning "assault weapons" and what he calls "high-capacity magazines."... (more)
