    when the Federal aid runs out again?   I don't see their employers keeping them on.   They will argue that this proposal merely extends or puts off the pain.

    How do you respond to someone who says that he's only proposing to delay the inevitable?  

    Does this buy more votes than it loses?  

    Tough questions to be answered in the days ahead.

    •  Why don't the states that need additional funding (0+ / 0-)

      for teachers, police, firefighters, and other workers traditionally funded at the state and local level raise taxes at the state or local level, even having the increase paid by the rich in their state, if they so choose?  This way the jobs are paid for long term.

      Why is having this paid for at the federal level a better policy?
