From: Senate Democrats Raise Lending Fees In Silly 2-Month Payroll Tax Cut Bill

The increasingly vitriolic debate over whether or not to extend a payroll tax cut and jobless benefits for two months has dominated the news recently, but no one seems to be factoring in that the $33 billion-cost for the bill will actually be footed by United States homeowners, who are already struggling to make mortgage payments. While the Senate, the House of Representatives and the president lob accusations and demands back and forth across the aisle and across the capitol, there is little acknowledgement that even the unpopular two-month cut, which is nothing more than a stop-gap measure and, many argue, un-implementable anyway, is going to literally cost taxpayers an arm and a leg.
