In the last act of insulting the american public the Republican led Congress and Senate decided as usual NOT to do the business of the american people but to do the last bidding of the Bush Administration. Instead of passing the stop gap measures in the budget, something which needed to be done, they decided to extend the tax cuts which a majority of the public doesn't see.
They also showed they don't give a damn about the public when they allowed 8.3 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico open for drilling. They also showed that they only care about covering their asses when the ethics committe said nothing was wrong with what they did in the Foley scandel.
In otherwords the lazy pieces of trash left the REAL WORK for the Democrats.
Good ridence to bad rubbish.
