GOP Declares Christmas Truce, Releases Hostages

House Republican leaders have finally agreed to a short-term extension of the payroll-tax break that saves working Americans money in these hard times. They had been holding middle-class families hostage on behalf of billionaire oil barons who want to build a huge multi-state pipeline without real review.

Don’t spend your savings too fast, wage-slaves. Like in the Christmas Truce of World War I, it will be back to the trenches in the New Year. Expect more extortionate demands from Congressional Republicans.

Happy Holidays.
