Sorry Rep Kline but we don't care about our kids or grandkids future. I want mine now and the government should do everything in its power to give it to me. I want never ending unemployment, free healthcare, free housing, free food and cheap goods.

John Kline, Should be thrown out of office! and we should have went over the cliff and that is the only way we will know how bad both of our parties stink. Either you beleive in something or you don't and he beleives in nothing. Vote him out!

NOBODY got what they wanted. The purpose of this bill was to "compromise" for the good of the entire country. More compromise in the future will be needed. I notice my congressman Eric Paulsen chose more gridlock. He needs to be voted out.

Bachmann, one of 151 Republicans to vote no, called the legislation a "last-minute backroom deal that does not address America's jobs and debt crisis."

How does it's being a 'last minute back room deal' distinguish it from any other deal resulting in congressional legislation? Or, are you attempting to denigrate it with those words mostly because you're miffed that even your own party doesn't trust you enough to invite you into that back room?

And please explain, since most of us are now wondering, how this was ever meant to be a "jobs" bill. (Unless you somehow mean under the unsubstantiated theory that leaving alone the tax rates of those at the top of economic pyramid will result in increased investment and "trickle down" jobs and economic benefits to the rest of us peons who are part of the great unwashed masses.)

Not a single penny of reduced spending and an increase in rate of revenue that will be spent by Martin Luther King Day. I will continue my preping.

"Bachmann, one of 151 Republicans to vote no, called the legislation a "last-minute backroom deal that does not address America's jobs and debt crisis." More 'word salad' from Ms Bachmann.

Bachmann once again shows just how out of touch she is, along with the rest of her Tea Party Traitors that put party ahead of country.
