    "Both chambers are hoping to wrap up the votes as soon as they can AND THEN GO ON SPRING RECESS". This is the key point. So even POLITICIANS get tired? WOW.

    Perhaps it's time to look beyond Yahoo as your news source?  Read the WSJ, NY TIMES, CNN, BBC.

    It's great big world of News Sources out there.

        How about trying your local business section, you will get the facts on the economy and job situation.  Also c-span channels will show the action live with on site discussion and debates in congress.
        All the above will sometimes open your eyes as to what the main street media and the liberal views of some commentators.
        Oh by the way  ,how about that so called radical Glen Beck on Fox news or Limbaugh on the radio.
        The Internet also feeds a lot of garbage too.

        Here's to your success in screening the information.

      Why would anyone wanting to know the truth go to CNN or another supposed news organization when all they do is spout lies, go to Fox or listen to talk radio if you want to know whats truly going on, fine example is this past week when the word successful was used 6 times by the news media you refer to in defining Obamas nuclear summit,  There was nothing triumphant about getting rid of a few nukes, we still have enough and so do they to destroy the world, this was a waste of time when America is facing huge unemployment and disaster!

    Boy, it you're getting on ff's case about Yahoo, what about the fact that FOX is the biggest "news" source, the highest rated cable channel.
    That means a majority of Americans are believing that CRAP they spew on a daily basis.

    Either that, or it's a source of enfotainment for them.
    Either way, if you want to call people on their sources....start there!

      FOX NEWS    ''fair and balanced ''    '' we report , you decide ''
      CNN  don't show before and after clips of what Obama said before the election,  during the election, makes comments and statement one day and then just the apposite on another day. THE CLIPS ARE NOT EDITED.

      Obama appears on ABC,CBS,NBC,CNN,MSNBC and other TV programs complaining about Fox News. Obama refuses to appear on Fox only because he would be asked hard ball questions. Not too long ago Fox did get an interview regarding the Healthcare Reform bill.  Well , Obama couldn't give the interviewer a straight answer on some questions and  after which he tried to filibuster the interview. The president wasn't too knowledgeable of the bill's contents, although he still  signed the bill , I guess because congress did have the votes to pass it.

      The American people are starving for the truth, not a blend of BS from the main street news media.  It is apparent that Fox out performs the Obama favored news channels Instead of comments from liberal progressive news medias, try watching it and make your own decision on Fox's mottos.

    You do not get the truth from Fox news...you get the twisted version of make believe that suits you.
    Is it really true that Obama hates white people?....even his own mother and grandparents?
    That's what Beckles said...and they even had a pretend discussion about it on the couch!

    How about the tea-party rally where Hannity was using old footage to beef up the attendance...to make it seem as of there were more people there than really were?
    Truth? Hardly.

    Did YOU know that New York city has secret communist messages built into the buildings?
    Beckles says so....and he cries on cue!
    Did you know when he was at CNN, he lambasted the American Healthcare system, but once he hit Fox, it suddenly became the best healthcare system in the world?

    One word: Phony

    One word for Fox: Propaganda

    I don't blame Obama for not going near there with a ten foot pole...it's an insane asylum!
