Good for him

He's showing some common sense now, something his party members have been severly lacking in for years. Maybe there's hope yet for the next 2 years.

Actually I was a bit surprised

I expected a shorter extension coupled to the unemployment extension, perhaps a year, or even six months.

Then they would spend most of next year arguing about it.

He basically bent over for the Republicans....

...instead of standing up to them. They were holding hostage legislation regarding medical issues facing 9/11 first responders to get this "compromise." He should have blasted them for that.

The Dems in Congress are turning on him. Ironically THIS might be what makes him a one-term president.

Talking points?

"Holding the country hostage." What a dope he is. It's only politics and he just showed that he's incompetent at it.

It's good he caved. The Dems can fight all they want, but if they hold it up until AFTER the first of January they will have even less bargaining power. And Americans will see an immediate diminishing of their paychecks. That will go over great.

Too bad the Dems let their arrogance take over. Too bad for them. Good for the country.

And if the GOP screws it up this time...

In reply to: Talking points?

it's all over for them. That was the lesson of the Tea Party. I hope they learned it. Clearly the Dems have not.

Let the cutting begin!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
