    Bohner agreed to the payroll tax extension.

    Who said Republicans were intransigent?

    Give me a break. This is a beginning of a cat fight among congressional Republicans.

    They don't want to help middle America. Look how they fight.

    Two fucking months of tax break and they are giving each other high-fives???

    Coxuckers are worse than Pelosi sending out a couple hundred dollar tax rebate.....borrowed from China.

    Morons need to get busy fixing entitlements and closing tax loopholes. I've had enough of this "only little people pay taxes" bullshit.

    A token sop, that can't even be implemented properly (how the hell are quarterly filers supposed to deal with this one?), and the all-too-predictable republican cave, by the biggest embarrassment of a House Speaker since...well....the last one.

    Big whoop.

    These little band aids are being hailed as major victories
    for Obama and a disastrous loss for the GOP.
    It has not much to do with helping the little people.
    It's about doling out a few bucks every now and then
    to keep the populace hooked on the drug called
    Liberalism.The people get a few extra dollars of their
    own money and Obama is hailed as a hero...
    Line up peeps at the polls and remember who gave
    you all that extra money in your pockets. :D

    I'd be all for it if they would extend the full 6.2% forever.

    He was in an Untenable Situation. He was right, Making Tax Policy 2 months at a time is Irresponsible. Everyone did want a longer Deal. EVERYONE failed to Come to the Table, including the President, to get that done.

    No, one....They'll spend the second month arguing about it all over again.

    If that makes you feel any better..
