The headline makes Republicans look bad. But read the story. It tells all. This is a game for Democrats. They use it as a tool to embarrass the Republicans. The Democrats tried to push this through without any time to try and see what could be cut to pay for extensions.

I feel bad for the unemployed, and thank Jesus I am not. But how long do we keep extending? Forever? At least use the unused portions of the stimulus money. Why not?

If the Republicans want war, then this was a good declaration. It's gonna be hell in the Congress the next two years, punks. Obama and the Dems need to call for a scorched earth policy...
