My unfavorable opinion of Sen. Baucus is reaffirmed and I still regret campaigning for him in '08!

Gee, it sure is a comfort to know that biofuel and rum lobbyists can still get Senate Finance Committee Pubs and Dems to trade favors; we can all feel better about tax policy and bipartisanship now, can't we?  Tongue

Unlike some who have become sore in this post tea party world and are thus desperate for any kind of thing that can be remotely labeled as compromise even if it is the same insider sleaze that similar people had so many issues with back in 2006, the answer is of course hell no.

This is getting ridiculous. Can they make these permanent or something if they are going to keep extending them like this?

No.  How can they get checks from the corporations in the future if they are permanent?
