Thank you!

How thankful we are that our politicians had a change of heart and granted us minions  an average of $40 more dollars in our paychecks.....guarantied at least for a couple of months till they are back at it to extend the deal!  The time has come for these and all government workers to pay into social security.  The bigger issue is how are we to pay for this foolishness?

 Congressional leaders reached a deal Thursday to give 160 million Americans an extended payroll-tax holiday, handing President Obama a year-end political victory over his Republican foes.
The showdown over a payroll-tax-cut extension worth about $40 per pay check to average Americans was the latest fierce showdown for control of power in polarized Washington ahead of Obama's 2012 re-election race. Obama earlier had fumed at the fact that Republicans and Democrats agreed that passing a payroll-tax cut was necessary, but were unable to agree on the length of the extension. "Has this place become so dysfunctional that even when people agree with things we can't do it? It doesn't make any sense. Enough is enough," Obama said.
