Senate breaks stimulus stalemate
By ANDREW TAYLOR and JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS, Associated Press Writers
WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans and Democrats agreed Thursday to add rebates for 20 million older people and 250,000 disabled veterans to a House-passed economic aid plan, ending a partisan stalemate.
The breakthrough came when Democrats, under pressure from party colleagues in the House, agreed to drop their insistence on adding jobless benefits, heating aid for the poor and business subsidies. Senate Democrats said they would allow a vote on a proposal that extends the tax rebates to Social Security retirees and disabled veterans.
Gutless lilly livered democrat fucks. They pander to the MoronMonkeyBoy administration, they pander to the republican minority and they pander to the same corpo-fascist agenda the republicans whore for. All the while, the repubs and the administration treat them like their bitches. Perhaps we need a touch of revolution to change this very broken system.
"When in the course of human events. . . . " Fuck these little bitch whores.
