Re the Dec. 25 story What’s the fallout over fiscal cliff?: After reading the Christmas Day article about the fiscal cliff, I noted that President Obama offered holiday greetings in his address.
However, House Speaker John Boehner used his address to say he won’t make a deal for 98 percent of the population, unless the president agrees to throw our parents and grandparents under the bus and cut Social Security and Medicare (Boehner calls it “entitlement reform”).
The Republicans are not just the party of No, they are now also the party of “humbug.”
