    such an agreement would require finding an offset, that is, taking funds from other federal programs to cover the $56.4 billion cost of the 13-month-long benefits extension introduced by Sen. Max Baucus Monday night.

    they can take the money out of here to pay for extending benefits:

    The Center for Public Integrity has revealed the Obama administration has doled out billions of dollars in stimulus money to oil giant BP and some of the nation’s other biggest polluters and granted them sweeping exemptions from the most basic form of environmental oversight.

    if that's not enough, they can take it out of scummy defense contractors' allowance obama keeps throwing money at despite war profiteers' blatant fraud and thievery.
