Cal Thomas: Fiscal-cliff agreement was more of the same

Everything that everyone loathes about Washington, D.C., was present in the “fiscal-cliff” bill passed by Congress. It is 153 pages long; most members probably hadn’t read all of it before voting on it; it was delivered in the middle of the night; it was loaded with pork (the mother’s milk, to mix a metaphor, of politicians); and while the country is already swamped with massive debt, it contains massive giveaways to satisfy interest groups and campaign contributors. Did I mention that the bill raises taxes on top of the coming Obamacare taxes, but does nothing – nothing – to address the debt problem?
