We keep hearing about how much the Democrats and especially the Left hate this current Tax Cut/Unemployment Deal yet they are going to pass it eventually. So why would they pass something they despise so much? Seems pretty sad and a bit cowardly to me. The Democrats still have compete control of Congress. They have all the power by way of the numbers. There's not much the Republicans can do to stop anything the Democrats want to do. The Republicans don't take the House back till January and even then the Democrats will still control the Senate. If the Democrats wanted to stop this deal,they certainly could. So why don't they? It just seems like a lot of whiny bluster for nothing. Why all the hysterics? They're going to pass it in the end anyway right? This is just another huge failure for this Democrat-Led Congress. From Super Majority to Lame Duck and now a Paper Tiger. What a long fall from grace.
