    I love what is considered a poison pill.

    Republicans - We need a decision on this subject now.
    Democrats - Decision making is a poison pill during an election year.

    The poison pill you speak about is the Republicans wanting jobs. Democrats have never cared about jobs, just entitlements, and more borrowing and spending.

    You need to go back to your Dem talking points memo and read it closer. Maybe you can find some new and different looney left things to say. I'm sure you've forgotten to mention someone that the left hates.

    I think the most interesting part about this debate is how a year ago, letting the Bush tax cuts expire wasn't "raising taxes", but letting the payroll tax cut expire is "raising taxes".

    You are right, it's the fault of the boogeymen.

    The T's in the House are "boogeymen"? I have a different word for them.

    They shouldn't extend the payroll tax cut. It was a dumb idea to begin with, and should be stopped ASAP.

    Its the only targeted tax we have, and extended it will further drive SS and Medicare deeper into the ****hole they are already in.

    You people are sad.

    Seriously.

    What did Boehner reject? A TWO MONTH extension. That was it. 60 days. What ****ing good is that? What is one of the things businesses say is a detriment to doing business? Not knowing. A two month "extension" that is being used by as a political football, just punt the issue for later. He said "no, **** that, either do it for a year or not at all".

    But I don't expect any of you to be honest, you're just repeating the DNC talking points here. The fact the Senate GOP went along with it? They haven't the votes to pass what they want so it was stonewall or move ahead.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Officials from the policy-neutral National Payroll Reporting Consortium, Inc. have expressed concern to members of Congress that the two-month payroll tax holiday passed by the Senate and supported by President Obama cannot be implemented properly.

    Pete Isberg, president of the NPRC today wrote to the key leaders of the relevant committees of the House and Senate, telling them that “insufficient lead time” to implement the complicated change mandated by the legislation means the two-month payroll tax holiday “could create substantial problems, confusion and costs affecting a significant percentage of U.S. employers and employees.”

    The spineless GOP House leader has shown his weakness again by changing his position on the bipartisan Senate payroll tax cut deal. After first saying "It was a good deal" he now says he opposes it. As Nancy put it ""By holding up this bipartisan compromise, tea party House Republicans are walking away once again, showing their extremism and clearly demonstrating that they never intended to give the middle class a tax cut," Pelosi said.

    is it any wonder that the approval rating of Congress is in the single digits? Allowing a minority to determine policy is against our Constitution isn't it?
    Boehner needs to grow a pair and get his House in order. We the people need to throw those Koch employees out of the House in 2012 or face more and more obstructionism.
    Obama promised to veto the bill anyway.
