    Hardly a mystery - It prevented states from laying off more workers and turned around the economy. To me that beats the hell out of another great depression that we were headed into.

    If GOPers make "no compromise!!!!!" their mantra, they will either lead the USA into total collapse...or be kicked out of power.

    The American people want compromise, for the sake of our nation.

    Republicans in DC need to hold their ground so the Obama credit rating can go down another notch.

    Two points in response.

    1-That MAY be the single most idiotic sentiment I have ever seen expressed here.
    2-You probably actually believe REPUBLICANS arent at least as responsible for the problems we face as democrats.

    Please...whatever you do...dont treat your next zit by cutting off your head. While that may initially SEEM like a good option...its not. Promise.

    From this comment it would seem that you missed that conservatives in Congress already have a lower approval rating than the president. And you want that lowered another notch?

    he's showing that he cares more about defeating Obama than the health & welfare of his country.

    Only momentarily...once the money ran out the states' layoffs started and have been continuing but I'm sure you already knew this as I've noticed you are quite knowledgeable on the BLS data.

    People figured that out about the GOP in congress after the 2010 election. That is why their approval rating is lower than the presidents.

    You are making the argument for more stimulus to the states, not less. But that works for me.
