    Now I'm completely confused: two hours ago the GOP said no way no how because the bill contained no spending cuts. Six min ago the House voted and passed the bill.

    Hookers are less fickle than the GOP apparently.

    Yup; apparently the GOP first wanted to force the bill back to the Senate, but the Senate told them to fuck off. If the House sends it back to the Senate the Dems said they would not reconvene which would have caused all the negotiations to start over with the new Congress.

    The GOP decided to postpone their spending cuts fight till the bill is revisited in 2 months.

    Actually no: it's the indecision that bugs me. Say yes, say no, just make a decision already.

    Every site I've looked at says something different... it seems that the overall consensus is that nothing important was fixed at all.

    At best, the tomato can of cement kicked down the road was upgraded to a cement filled gallon of lead.

    kick the can down the road is on the list of banned words/phrases for 2012 because it is so annoying and overused.
