      ...the "compromise" enough so that it had to go back to conference, or the Senate had a filibuster against it, then the clock might run out and the tax cuts would all expire. All the other crap that was added in the Senate, too. But so would the UI extensions.

That's quite a freight train rolling ouy of the Capitol!
