So here we are, December 18th, one week before Christmas, and the multi-millionaires have gotten their presents- 2 more years of lower taxes, the workers have gotten a 2% one-year reduction in social security payroll taxes(which of course, will put a further strain on the Social Security System), the unemployed get 99 weeks of unemployment, and when seniors look in their Christmas stocking, all they have is higher medical costs, higher food costs, higher energy costs, and no increase in their meager social security payments for the second year in a row.

Bah Humbug!

Yep and the extended unemployment does not add weeks to the ninety-niners, so those who have fallen off unemployment and still don't have a job will soon be homeless. I am so angry that the wealthy elite got an extension on their taxes, what is the point of that, most of them don't pay taxes anyway.
