    This compromise benefits the Senators who have tough re-election fights, who now cannot be attacked for voting against extended UEI.  They know it won't pass, at least not until after the primary.

    Trust me, with mud slides, March Madness, Putin, and all the other shiny objects, this issue IS NOT on the radar of average Americans.  Boehner and the GOP rolled the dice on this and so far, have won.  And, as long as Obama and the Dems are on the defensive on everything else, this will get very little, if any, media attention.

    Without media attention, this will never be renewed.  And,...if you want it to die a quick death, try attaching a min wage bill to it.
