Congress, facing an angry public, now working on payroll tax compromise

Today Republicans and Democrats decided to stop sniping at each other and appear to be working on a compromise to extend the payroll tax cut (among other things) and keep the federal government running.

Perhaps they took to heart the Pew Research Center's recent poll that found voters are fed up with a do-nothing Congress.

In fact, the poll respondents are so irked that two-thirds want to kick the Congressional bums out of office.

Whatever the reason, it now appears that there might be some hope for a payroll tax cut and government funding compromise.

We shall see, and soon.

While the popular payroll tax cut is in place through Dec. 31, the federal spending agreement must be reached by Friday, Dec. 16.
