"The US House of Representatives has imposed a five-year freeze on new wireless taxes"...
The House of Representatives cannot impose a freeze on taxes, or any other legislation on their own. What the article should say is that the House of Representatives has approved legislation to freeze taxes, and the bill will now be sent to the Senate for approval. Following Senate approval, and negotiations to resolve any differences in their respective legislation, the bill will be sent to President Obama for his signature or veto. Only after both houses of Congress pass a bill, AND the President signs it, does it become law.
Unfortunately, the two house of Congress are passing very little legislation these days... they're to busy playing "one upsmanship" with each other and the two parties (Republican and Democrat) to pass much in the way of legislation that doesn't meet their partisan standards... Fire 'em all, and bring in Congress critters who will do the job they're getting paid to do.
FAIL, because the US Congress is a total and abject failure right now. Or maybe I should go with a "joke alert" or thermonuclear explosion.
