    Wow! Chalk one up for the President. He pulled a fast one on those racist sexist republicans. And the result?

    More debt, More government dependency, And more Deception a la Obamacare being used in order to get it done.

    @MBernard

    Seems they areed to the extra stimulus. They probably just didn''t want to admit that it was needed, as they had campaigned on it not working, even though they seem to know it did.

    @MBernard your right!
    Thy filibustered the jobs bill.
    Threatened to let all tax cuts expire if they don't get what they want. The GOP has acted against the American people to serve their interest. They are terrorists.

    it sure seems to have stopped the economic death spiral we were in.

    if it didn''t work, why did the Republicans aggree to more of it?

    If Obama was a dictator he wouldn't put up with GOP idiots in congress. If by indoctrinated idiots you mean the 51 percent of the voters who just democratically re-elected Obama, it seems your opposition to their decision makes you the one who wants dictatorship...

    @Vance1

    You didn't hear about the historic job losses we were left with? or the complete collapse of the banking and financial industries? it was in all the papers...

    We know have more jobs in four short years than before that historic job loss, that would be historic job creation! and we still have banks and lending institutions, which is nice...

    facts and history are fun!

    If Obama is a fool, as you say, then what are ALL of the Republican Congressmen who not only voted to raise the debt ceiling but were also complicit in keeping the stimulus portion of the bill in secrecy?
    Furthermore, if you haven't noticed, consumer spending, an important economic indicator, is up on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Could it be that this is a long recovery that economists have suggested all along?

    @MBernard That's what he is doing with the fiscal cliff 'negotiations'. The GOP will either do the right thing and Obama wins or they'll raise taxes on 98% of us and lose in 2014 and beyond. It must really hurt to be a GOPer right now. I guess that's why so many want to put their tails between their legs and leave the country.

    nobody is shocked at his lawlessness. certainly not the brain dead who voted for him. and the rest of us knew what to expect from someone who hated this country his whole life.

    I don't know why anyone would be surprised by obama doing anything in secret . Look at benghazi if the media won't do there job and obama and his white house is covering it up as well as they are . The dictator will do whatever he wants to do and just take your medicine America ! This president should have been impeached on Benghazi end of story . He will keep doing this regardless of congress or the American people .

    i thought covert actions, are only done by the cia and military. and not to be done, in this nation. and doing the job of congress, is not in his job description.

    I am a little surprised. But this does explain a lot about the deficit. I am more shocked that Republicans went along with this legislation. From the numbers it sounds like they were okay with being winners in public but privately did not care. But seeing as this story is from mother Jones and being reported now I'll have to check on some of the facts

    more pork! We need a new form of government, it is clear that this is not working at all to anyones advantage unless you are illegal or on welfare!

    Knew about it then, so why is this suddenly a big secret? The GOP legislators knew about it. Come on Politix - stop creating controversy where it doesn't exist just by spicing up a headline.

    Dismayed for sure. If Congress and the President truly care about this country, they will start striping away all the unnecessary laws, ban lobbyist and stop pretending to know how to fix the mess they've made and whats best for us. We need simple and strait forward leadership and laws. The status quo isn't getting it any more.
