Late Tuesday night the House passed the Senate bill avoiding the so-called fiscal cliff. President Obama and Vice President Biden appeared in the White House briefing room to to tout a campaign promise kept.
President Obama wasted no time boarding M1 just before midnight to begin the trip back to his vacationing family in Hawaii.
He'll need to take advantage of this brief vacation in the sun. This bill only delayed the automatic cuts in federal spending by two months and by then the debt ceiling will need to be addressed, two very thorny issues.
