    That extra ten bucks a week is awesome, too! I'm going to go buy a quater-of-a-million dollar home, with all that extra cash I have.

    You must be having a fit over Obama's spending policies, then. Yes?

    It's actually closer to $30/week for an individual, or $240/month for a couple. Economists say that it boosts GDP by about a full percentage point, which is quite significant.

    It's amazing how Republicans will beg and plead for tax cuts, and then whine when they actually get a tax cut. It's the ultimate hyperpartisan bull****.

    8 pages before a hack-ified post fest. Good job! Longer than I expected.

    Well, I was against the continuation of the tax cuts, but it makes more sense to keep taxes low during a recession than during the good times, like from 2003-2007.
