Several St. Tammany Democratic leaders,  unhappy with the possibility of a $2,000 middle-class income tax  increase, are  planning a welcome-home greeting for Republican Congressman Steve Scalise on Friday.

They plan to personally present him with a festively-wrapped lump of coal and a message,”Get back to work,” to avoid the fiscal cliff.

They will gather at Scalise’s Mandeville office, 21454 Koop Drive, Suite 1E, at 10 a.m., led by Keith Villere, chairman of the St.Tammany Democratic Executive Committee and former mayor of Covington.

The event is under the auspices of a nationwide movement called “The Action,” which is  working to get Congress to prevent the tax increases while letting the Bush tax cuts expire for those making more than $250,000 a year.
