    If they added a lot of pork/earmarks/bribes then everybody will be the biggest losers.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The Tea Party Movement got shut out by the 2010 tax compromise; their primary focus was taxes and deficits. Unpaid for social spending like extending the unemployment benefits for another 13 months is particularly obnoxious to them. This compromise adds a $1 trillion to the national debt while only temporarily lowering taxes for everyone, there's little here the Tea Party Movement wanted.

    You do understand who funds the GOP leadership, don't you?

    Donations = Bribes.

    The Dems are guilty of this to. Money buys power.

    Dems. They have rejected bipartisanship, employed class warfare, and are to stubborn to compromise on a bill that Republicans and Obama agree with. They are the losers, and if they have their way with the bill we will all be the biggest losers.

    I had that train of thought but then put Republicans. The Tea Party may just make them pay in 2012 so they will be the big losers.

    Depends, the Tea party was always in favor of lower taxes and since this is being passed during the 2009-2010 session, the republicans of the 2011-2012 won't be punished in any electoral form, it is, afterall, over 30 tea party representatives in that session.

    However, if the deficit continues to go upward, then I can see many republicans staying home in 2012

    It's the billions of spending and the extention of unemployment they don't like. From what I'm hearing some want to just let them expire and regroup in Jan.
