Who's at Fault for the "Fiscal Cliff?" Faux "News" Lies, Chris Van Hollen Sets Them Straight

I don't know how anyone can have the patience to go on Faux "News" and put up with their constant lying, distorting, false narrative setting, slandering, etc, but kudos to Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) for kicking serious butt with these bozos.  Great job. Of course, it helps Democrats like Van Hollen make their case that the right wing has ZERO facts on its side regarding the fiscal cliff, as in nada, nil, zip, zilch, none. In reality, of course, if Tea Party Republicans didn't control the U.S. House of Representatives, and if John Boehner hadn't completely lost control of his own caucus, we would have had a balanced deal a long, long time ago. But that's the situation we find ourselves in right now, thanks to the 2010 mid-term elections, when millions of Democrats foolishly stayed home and failed to offset the votes of the Teahadists. Now, we're all suffering for that huge mistake. Let's just hope that millions of Democrats learned their lesson and will NEVER sit out another election again!
