The damned 'R's in the House had better not put up some sort of a short-sighted snit-fit over this.  That would do nothing more than hand the democrats an almost perfect distraction from Obamacare and the floundering economy.

5 months is just in time to bring it up again during the middle of the campaign.

so the 'R's should get out ahead of the curve and counterpropose that it be extended through to the end of the year.

Agree.  That would be the politically smart move.  Anyone think they'll actually do it?   :whistle:

Sometime in the future there won't be "welfare" any more.

Everyone will just be collectin' their "unemployment benefits".

Unemployed forever.
With "unemployment" benefits -- forever.

No.  It was all just a rose-colored fantasy, I'm afraid.
