Since the so-called Fiscal Commission didn't even vote, their proposal is a dead letter

The Bowles/Simpson fiscal (or "Catfood") commission didn't even have the guts to vote on the proposed report, since they didn't have the votes to force it to be taken up by Congress.

So the hell with them. Their proposal is pure plutocracy anyway. I wish the president would just repudiate their findings and we could get on with whatever we can manage to do in the next two years of Republican obstructionism without reference to this claptrap.
