    It doesn't matter to me, but they are cutting off their noses to spite their faces. The cuts will expire, the Repubs will restore them after the new year, and everyone will see their paychecks get smaller in the meantime. Way to make the Republicans look like heroes. I swear, the Dems don't even know how to play the game anymore.

    There are two types of people, those, like me, that want my employer to do well so that I have job security and those who hate their employer because they have more money than they do. Guess which one Wee Wee falls under.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    The republicrats should be kissing Pelosi's ass for this one.
    Now the incoming class of idealists can do the right thing and not only push for a permanent extension but also the budget cuts to pay for it.
    Of course I am probably hoping for too much to actaully believe they have the stones to do it.

    holy crap Bernie Sanders is on the floor of the Senate doing an old-school real filibuster.

    He's got pages and pages full of facts and he's speaking the truth.

    idk how much it matters but Bernie Sanders owns we need more politicians like him
