After a long, late night session in the House - it’s official: For two years, tax rates aren’t going up for anyone.
By a vote of 277-148, both Democratic and Republican lawmakers got behind the bill -- which extends Bush-era tax cuts for two years and jobless benefits for 13 months. (Video from C-SPAN)
And it’s a decisive victory for Republicans. No wait - it’s a victory for President Obama. No... for the American people?
That all depends on who you ask.
Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer writes “...historians will mark [President Obama’s] comeback as beginning on Dec. 6 … to resurface suddenly not just as a player but as orchestrator, dealmaker and central actor in a high $1 trillion drama."
But the real winner is the American people- according to Wyoming Republican Rep. Cynthia Lummis on Fox Business.
“This bill will prevent an evil in the economy, which is the potential of double dip unemployment rather than have a stimulative effect. It preserves the status quo for two years. It allows people to continue to weather this tough economy.”
But CNN’s Josh Levs drops a bombshell -- saying the exclusion of some tax creditsmeans taxes are actually going up for some 51 million households.
“Under this tax cut deal, the making work pay tax credit has been dropped. That's a matter of hundreds of dollars. ... Instead, what you're getting, is social security taxes that are going down a little bit. They've been at 6.2%. They are going down to 4.2%. So basically what you've got to do is, based on how much money you make, you might be coming out a little behind under this new deal.”
Still - President Obama has been dubbed the comeback kid for brokering a deal with Republicans and overcoming Democratic opposition. But MSNBC’s Chris Jansing says- isn’t there more to this story?
JANSING: “Did any of those in the end for the broad American public really matter or is the only thing that is going to make him the comeback kid when that unemployment rate comes down?”
Panelists on CNBC are optimistic about that jobless rate - since the deal means more sweeteners for the business community - who will in turn do the hiring.
“The likelihood is we will be seeing corporate tax cuts in next year's budget after Obama's meeting with the CEOs. This is a real change towards the business economy, the private economy and away from the force-feeding of government spending economy.”
But here’s the thing - a penny saved in taxes, isn’t a penny earned for the economy unless people go out and spend it. A 24/7 Wall Street article calls that ironic.
“Individuals and corporations may save the money that the tax cuts ‘give’ them to lower debt and prepare for another possible economic downturn. The irony of that is if the money is not spent, the chance of a downturn increase, probably sharply.”

In entertainment -- Halle Berry’s custody battle to keep 3 month old daughter Nahla is heating up again. Yesterday, her ex-husband hulled the actress into court and gave her this ultimatum -- choose your career, or your child.
TMZ says Halle wanted to take Nahla to New York for her next film -- but was given the Sophie’s Choice scenario instead. Earlier this year, she dropped the film “New Year’s Eve” to begin fighting with ex-husband Gabriel Aubry, but despite this she offered to put Gabriel Aubry in a swanky hotel to be with Nahla -- he declined asking, “Why can’t she just leave her here?”
Unfortunately for the unemployed ex-husband, the courts ruled in favor of Halle. She’s expected to take Nahla to NYC in two weeks, pending more backlash from Aubry.

A twist of fate...a 13-year-old Ohio boy is back on the baseball mound after a surgery that left one of his legs turned backwards.
At ten years old, Dugan Smith learned he had bone cancer in his leg. Cleveland’s WJW has details on the procedure doctors performed that allows him to stay active.
REPORTER: “Dugan had a tumor the size of a softball on his thigh bone.”
DUGAN: “I didn’t know if I was every going to be able to run again. I didn’t know if it was going to work. So there was 100 things going through my mind.”
REPORTER: “Dugan endured months of chemotherapy for choosing a procedure that would cut off a portion of his leg and turn it 180 degrees.”
The Review Times calls it “A whole new ballgame” and the Columbus Dispatch dons him “The comeback kid”...
..****menting on the procedure that allows Dugan’s calf to function as his thigh and his ankle to bend like his knee.
A Review Times writer adds the procedure was a no-brainer for Dugan.
“Had he not chosen rotationplasty, playing baseball again may have been just a pipe dream for Dugan Smith. But instead of sitting on the bench, the seventh grader donned his No. 13 jersey ... as pitcher and first basemen.”
Dugan’s leg will continue to grow and he must do physical therapy up to three times a week. A Cleveland Plain Dealer blogger says the boy has come a long way since his odd procedure.
“Dugan plays baseball and basketball, went skiing last week, and plans to go out for freshman football in the fall ... but the leg does look strange.”
Dugan says he still hopes to fulfill his dream of being a Major League Baseball player - noting he’d be the first pitcher in the league with a prosthetic leg.
