Republicans: also claiming to be doing the will of the people but voting against what the majority want......

they promised us that the bush tax cuts would pay for themselves and keep the budget surplus clinton had created..... that obviously failed, so shouldn't they admit they were wrong and go back and raise the taxes back to their 90's levels and not have to stick it to our seniors?

not when the voters have the attention span of a gnat.

just tell them the same people who have sat on their money for two years will create jobs if we bribe them with more money......

Bush should have put Clinton's surplus back into Social Security instead of OIL WELFARE.
If they left the cash in wouldn't inflation eat it up? . . . and how can it draw interest if not borrowed? The sad news is that the government loans it to itself and we pay the interest. I suspect that's why the government established it it the first place, progressives looking for off-budget funds.
