The No. 1 issue next year will be that President Obama, Harry ReidHarry ReidBill O'Reilly: Politics helped kill Kate Steinle, Zarate just pulled the trigger Tax reform is nightmare Déjà vu for Puerto Rico Ex-Obama and Reid staffers: McConnell would pretend to be busy to avoid meeting with Obama MORE, Nancy Pelosi and Democrats will be fighting for working people while Republicans will be fighting for millionaires who they believe should make no sacrifice for America.

Immediately after Congress passed the payroll tax cut and jobless benefits extension, Harry Reid renewed the battle for a surtax for those making a million bucks a year to join the rest of America in being part of the solution.

Reid made his move fast, strong and hard with his immediate call for action.

Meanwhile, the airwaves are full of Tea Party members of the House whining and complaining. They are willing to throw 160 million American workers under the bus in order to prevent the most wealthy millionaires from making even the tiniest contribution to helping our country become economically stronger.

When Reid came out swinging today he was telling the Tea Party, like Clint Eastwood told the crooks: Go ahead, make my day.

There are smiles today throughout the Democratic base because the fighting spirit is back for the Dems.

There are smiles today throughout the heartland of working-class America because the Democrats are back fighting for them, and winning.
