Pay-go gets passed, then it gets bypassed

At The Hill:
The ink is barely dry on the pay-as-you-go law, and Democrats are seeking to bypass it to enact parts of their job-creation agenda.

Democratic leaders said extensions of unemployment insurance and COBRA healthcare benefits should be emergency spending that isn’t subject to the pay-as-you-go statute, which requires new non-discretionary spending to be offset with spending cuts or tax increases.
 I' m shocked, shocked I tell you!  Congressman Hill is conveniently out of the country or he would make sure that this didn't happen (yeah, right)-SP
