Extending Bush Tax Cuts for 1 more year of Unemployment! The ends DO NOT justify the means

Yesterday a bunch of people were out hip-hip hooraying that the Bush tax cuts would not expire and would continue on for everybody, including those making $250,000 or more a year.  What I certainly did not get was why everyone was okay with the fact that the “only” compromise is that we are now extending unemployment benefits not for another 16 or 42 weeks but for a whole additional year on top of what the current 99ers are currently receiving.  I had to turn off the radio when John Phillips on KABC was going on and on about how sad and irate the people on the left are, such as Bill Maher.  Now since the government isn’t forcing him to give over 35% of his money to them, he will be forced to keep it all for himself.  It was not such a great victory that conservative people are making it out to be.  I am totally disappointed that the republicans are cheering this deal.  It is horrible and the ends do not justify the means.
