This could translate in to lost jobs and or lose of company health benefits. At a time when the unemployment rate is hoovering around 10 the white house decides to make it worse. I for one don't understand. Can someone show me the silver lining cause I just don't.

Two things: (1) get the money out, and (2) consider term limits. The first became much harder in January when the Supremes decided that corporations (you know, state-created fictions with limited liability) were full persons under our Constitution for purposes of political speech. Just like the ads for their drugs that aren't selling, the corporations have already started on their plan to "re-educate" us on the healthcare bill economics.
And term limits only will work if every state adopts them. Otherwise, it's just imposing a handicap on the states which have the good sense to enact them, while the others grab all the seniority.
So I agree: we need a whole lot of house-cleaning in D.C. And a whole lot less money going into the political process.

This has been going on for decades ladies & gentlemen what evil one side did surely the other could have fixed if they had wanted. Its both sides & until the majority of us quit fighting one another like both want they stay safe & sound in their comfy jobs with all the benefits paid for by us. There has to either be a third party that is not a clone or we have to start picking & choosing very carefully like we should have been doing all along.

I could go on but thats not the point, you still insist that one is better than the other, look around with an open mind for a bit of a change theres a little less tan what something like 500 men & women that we elect to represent us & the balance of power keeps changing but the direction that we are governed never seems to. Just why is that?
