    Already? I would have thought they'd fight alittle more.

    Considering how long it took just to print out the bill. I am not surprised their is opposition to passing it within 2 days.

    Gee, the GOP didn't win the senate, they won the house.

    I bet you money that the budget served up by the next congress is bigger and contains more pork, but flavored to suit the tastes of both parties, not just the dems.

    Anybody brazen enough to take that bet?

    Yeah. Reid will try, try again to spend way too much of our money.

    But at least for now, Reid folded.

    Elections matter.

    The Republicans hung tough.

    A good bit of news overall.

    The substitute bill offered by McConnell to keep the gubmint running is supposedly just 1 page long.

    McConnell found religion! Way to be.

    I am very proud of that old boy right about now.

    Much ado about nothing. It's going to pass, if not by Jan 1 soon after that. The average voter could care less as long as his taxes don't increase in 2011.
