Are they kidding? The bill raises taxes and continue the AMT which hits every Middle Class taxpayer now as it was never indexed for inflation. It causes us all to pay higher taxes while certain groups pay none. We do not need high speed rail. It is a total waste of tax payer dollars and there are no customers. They will ruin family farms in California but will not allow the Keystone Pipeline to be built. Why do we have to put up with this?

Unfortunately, Congress never learns from history, or if they do, they don't "retain" what they learned. As long as we have the illegal obama administration, "tarp and stimulus" will never help Americans-it only help foreign "guest workers"!!
