Very key:
"Most Republicans opposed the measure because it would add $34 billion to a national debt that has hit $13 trillion, arguing that it should have been paid for with cuts to other programs, such as unspent money from last year's economic stimulus bill, which is earning mixed grades at best from voters as unemployment stands at 9.5 percent nationwide."
It amuses me to watch Obama spin the facts.

The communist dictator Barack Obama and the despicable Democratic socialists of US Congress vowed to redistribute the American taxpayers money to the parasites that refuse to find job up to almost two years s as convert America to third world welfare county that borrow money from China to pay for parasites. Obama is using the unemployment as the new entitlement that will increase his voters by 2.5 million unemployed and 15 million illegals that will claim unemployment because their ID will never be checked.
Obama continues to borrow more than 700 billion dollars for Fannie Mae for the subsidized housing for the minority, poor and illegal immigrants. In addition, Obama now he added 3.5 billions to his Fed owned car company GM that he will give as free loan to the minority, poor and illegal immigrants that “deserve” car paid by the American people.
Will the American people ever wake up to stop stealing their money by the Obama regime for re-distribution and purchasing votes of the poor, illegals and minority?

I was reading the paper this morning and decided to check the employment section. There are jobs out there... What is the problem? The problem is, as long as people are getting paid to be unemployed why should they work.
I think the People should have a right to vote on Obamas decisions.
