Indiana Jones and the Fiscal Cliff

Is this the Last Crusade?

In the U.S. House of Representatives, a Plan A was hatched to keep the country from going over the fiscal cliff. "Fiscal cliff" sounds scary, and like other cliffs, pretty much no one wants to go over one. A few people do, I guess, because there's never total unanimity on anything.

Anyway. Plan A fail, so Plan B took shape. Whatever it was, was pretty much of a secret, mostly because no one was particularly interested in reading all that. But to avoid Plan B Fail, it was kept under wraps so it could get modified into something acceptable.

They had Plan B, then B (a), B (b), B (c), and so on through the alphabet with modifications.

To everyone but the House of Representatives' surprise, Plan B (s) failed.

Indy--can you please peek over the edge and tell us it ain't so? Can you assure us the sequel is almost done already? Can you whip these guys into shape?
