Charles Krauthammer: With “Fiscal Cliff” Deal, Obama has Split the GOP, Diminished Speaker John Boehner, and Effectively Seized Control of Washington D.C. – Video 1/1/13

Here is video of Charles Krauthammer summing up brilliantly the political impact of President Barack Obama’s victory in getting the GOP-controlled House of Representatives to approve the “Fiscal Cliff” Deal that raises tax rates but does not cut spending. The deal will add $4 Trillion to the National Debt over 10 years, but got 85 Republican votes anyway to give passage of the bill a wide margin, 257-167. Krauthammer says Obama cleverly used this deal to split the Republicans, diminish House Speaker John Boehner, and has effectively seized control of Washington D.C.
