      so by now we all heard the news.....everyone is getting everything most likely if this passes.......and our kids and grandkids will be paying off the national debt....actually most likely our grand kids...kids....

      i'm still NOT seeing how any of this is going to create more jobs, but then again, as usual, i'm most likely missing something! ( and it's NOT my brain!)

        No one's grand kids will be paying anything off. The debts will be inflated away.

        If you saw 60 minutes last night you will see that the fed will digitally print the money to pay for all this. Ben said he's going beyond the 600billion of qe that he announced last month.

        I knew they would extend the tax cuts, I also knew UE would be extended as well.

        Now we all have to figure out just how to pay for our food and gasoline. You can bet this will all be very inflationary and if you don't think it will please look at your local gas pumps and watch the prices rise by the day.

            Whatmoney and anyone else are welcome to debate this all they want. It's not me or you guessing the future. It's what they (the govt) are doing now.

            All I ask is that you all leave the partisan thinking at the door!!!

            Just because we can do math better then most doesn't make us "an extreme right winger"!!

                I am listening to CNN & CNBC and still haven't heard that it passed. I heard Obama talking about the compromise. Did it actually pass yet??? I hope it does and 13 months would be a good amount for unemployment extensions. When I hear official confirmation by my eyes, I will toast this thread!!!

                  As it stands, it is just a verbal compromise made between the white house and key majority/minority leaders. It's just an idea. That could change quickly if they get it to a vote in the lame duck session. As of the wee hours of 12/7/10, it is still just a bunch of talk. From what I've seen in several different stories, some democrats and some republicans (it's both... please don't turn this into what the dems did, or what the repubs did) have already said they're inclined to vote "no," so if it does pass, it might not be with flying colors.
                  OK - from now on it's not a "Bankruptcy." It's a "Weight Loss Program." I'm in. Sign me up.

                    smack!!

                    It hasn't passed anything yet - and it will take 60 votes to stop a filibuster. There is at least one Repub that says he'll vote against it. Will 40 Democrats vote against it? Real unlikely, if they are not lame duck Senators. Polosi isn't supporting it completely yet - a $5 Million exemption for inheritance tax and two more years of tax breaks for the rich? Give me a break. But it will get through this year because everyone gets something (except us Seniors) and to hell with paying for it this generation. Inflation actually helps Seniors with retirement savings through higher interest rates.

                    I don't like this Obama sellout much either - It will increase the deficit by $300 to $600 Billion in the next 2 years, depending on who's estimating.

                    A joke I found on the liberal Huffington Post:

                    What do Barrack Obama and Sarah Palin have in common?
                    .
                    .
                    They both quit after two years.

                          Don't worry about it. After all, it's only money.
