I find it ironic that you on one posting want to be fair and balanced when The part you keep ignoring is, Demcorats are calling the continuing tax cut a stimulus (which ironically they didnt feel the same about just a few weeks ago), so if its a stimulus, its a stimulus, regardless of who's getting it. $100,00 a year, $1,000,000 a year, heck $1B a year... it doesnt change the facts. Either its a stimulus, or its not.. Either they are good, or they arent.

I think AMT is pretty much a bipartisan issue. Both sides know it has to be "fixed" every year. Neither side wants a permanent "fix" that would be reflected in the CBO 10-year deficit projections. Same idea as the Medicare "doc fix" - can't have honest recognition of the cost in HCR or it wouldn't pass...
