"Today, I think we have given a bit of hope to millions of Americans, who are struggling in a difficult economy to find jobs, who are struggling to provide sustenance to their families," Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., said after the vote.

Ya think? But listen to the government controlled news and all is rosy.

NONE of the stuff they pass is offset. OCare, Welfare, SSI. If it were we would not be trillions of dollars in debt.

Yes it is all politically motivated, and people are to friggin stupid to realize that they are being used as pawns.

How much/many pork give aways were in that budget and they have the audacity to argue about this issue?

Its simply a shell game. And we the people are the losing rubes.

When I was laid off I got 105 weeks of unemployment, loved it, best paid vacation I ever had. No paperwork to file, no interviews, no need to do anything but sit back relax and make a phone call every once and a while, in between my Pena Kalona's!
