4. I am sick to death also . . .

. . . of all the bad mouthers of the President on DU. HE IS NOT A KING THAT CAN RULE BY EDIT. He's also not the king of the Democrats either, and they had as much a hand in the bill as anyone. If there is fault lay it all around because the majority of the 538 members of the Senate and House voted to pass the bill with the provisions sited in the OP. If you think all the banks and corporations in the country, WITH THE REPUGS WORKING FOR THEM FULL-TIME, have no power in this country, your naivete is stunning.

Now try listing some of the benefits of the bill like extending unemployment for those that were about to lose their only income, or the increased revenue the bill raises and you might have a different perspective. You don't ever get everything you want unless you are the dictator in a dictatorship. It's about negotiation, or you may as well be just an inflexible, left-wing version of a teabagger and nothing ever gets done. And who's to say this quick fix bill is permanent? Now the real negotiation starts, and those on unemployment at lease aren't going to starve.
