After a nearly week-long silence, private talks over how to avoid the fiscal cliff have resumed between the staff of House Speaker John Boehner and the White House. Differences between the two sides still remain wide however, over how to avert the looming tax increases and spending cuts.

    President Obama won the election with strong backing from working American families. Republicans lost with only support from wealthy, about 2% own 60% of everthing in America. Its past time the top 2% paid their fair share in federal taxes,today tax rates are at a 58 year low.

    If GOP is willing to increase revenues from top 2%, are DEMs going to start being realistic about expenditures and stop saying silly things like "no changes to Social Security or Medicare whatsoever"?
