    hahahahahahahahaha! Well, I had not thought about it that way, but I am certain they will come up with something...that's just how it works, and is part of the game....

    even if the economy has the turn around, there will still be the issue with our huge deficits and national debt, and although republicans that were in office are the ones that got us on to this road of spending and borrowing under President Bush, the Obama administration and this Democratic congress are continuing the same trend of spending and borrowing...

    2010 is when the tax cuts expire and the Dems have to get the tax cuts on the middle class extended or they stand to lose a lot of seats....and I can not see repubs voting for extending the tax cuts on the middle class WITHOUT extending tax cuts to their beloved, wealthiest. so if all the tax cuts stay that were due to expire, our deficits and debt will be even larger than projected...Dems will lose some seats...it can be spun that the repubs are innocent, which is bulloney, but it wil be spun that way, even though they added 6-7 TRILLION to the national debt under Bush themselves...

    But this is how the game is played....I have seen it too many times in my life time to expect otherwise.

    care

    Well the Pubs will try and muck it up but remember 95% of American families will receive a tax cut under the Democratic plan and the revenue raised by allowing the rates on those that earn over 250k to return to Pre Bush levels is predicted to cover some of the shortfall in revenue.
    One thing that is for sure until we are completely out of this hole we are in nothing should be off the table.

    If our economy had anything to do with which party is currently in or out of power I might care.

    I say this has something to do with Bush and his master plan. He is the reason the economy is coming back.

    Everyone knows this. Causation...LOL

    I am for a recovering economy, but be careful with the housing stats.

    More than 30% of the sale are shorts and foreclosure clearances.
