Spending as usual

The extension of the Bush-era tax cuts is just one more chapter of "spend what we don't have to try to win votes today and let our children pay the bill."
The original deal between the Republicans and Obama was bad enough, but then the Congressional Democrats realized they had been cut out, and headed directly to the pork barrel.
Ironically, the Dems' objection was supposedly that these tax cuts were not paid for with spending reductions. Those objections are being eased by spending even more?
I thought that was the point of the last election, that voters were sick of Congress spending with not a care about the future.
Didn't anybody listen? Is anybody paying attention to what is happening in Europe?
And how much of this damage can be undone after the lame ducks leave?
