    They passed the vote. The senate passed the vote and it goes to the house.

    When congress is determined to spend massive amounts of our money, there is no stopping them.

    They're like a runaway train barreling it's way to oblivion. :BangHead:

    Depends on just how many Republicans are willing to brave the storm.

    Most recalcitrant democrats have been bought off.

    It's a big - the biggest ever - ripoff of taxpayer money in response to panic that Congress itself has encouraged with all their dire warnings. Where were these fools when all the root cause legislation was passed years ago? Where were they when others warned of the problem?

    The added all those tax break extensions so I have doubt the ultra conservatives will get on board. The question is will they loose some of the ultra liberals.

    Well with all the unrelated ornaments on this Christmas tree such at alternative energy tax credits it's nice to see our elected representatives acting on their principles and not giving in to politics and special interests.:BangHead:

    Well at least Elizabeth Dole voted against it.

    Now there’s a brave leader on this issue.
