I guess the Christmas vacation to Hawaii (two Air Force One flights and Cargo planes to carry Limo and entourage) that will probably exceed $5 Mil could have paid for the a good portion of the two month extension. Too bad the campaigner in chief is not willing to make the sacrifices of the common taxpayer.......
What good would a two month extension of benefits do if it cannot be implemented within two months - Most of Senate members have already left for their hard earned vacation so it would be January before work would begin on how to implement the extension.
Unfortunately it all comes down to who is a better debater challenging the incumbent campaigner in chief. Its not what the person actually will accomplish in office but what is stated during debates. Americans voted for "change" in last election and one would conclude expectations were not achieved.
Newt Gingrich is only candidate that can successfully challenge the incumbent in a debate.
It is interesting that NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko, former assistant to Harry Reid, was opposed to safe storage of spent nuclear fuel at Yucca Mountain (middle of Nevada nuclear weapons testing site) rather than at nuclear power plant sites close to rivers & community water sources. Could it possibly have been a purely political decision?
