Others blame Obama for the skyrocketing unemployment, as his stimulus plan was a complete and utter failure. Had he calculated this measure correctly - or not passed it at all - then it's argued that the nation would be in a better state right now.
There is only one vote needed to pass the measure, and it's believed that Carte Goodwin, the newest West Viginia senator who will be sworn in tomorrow, will vote for the bill bringing it to a passage in the Senate.
If that doesn't occur, there's little word about what 'Plan B' will entail.
Considering that billions of dollars have been spent on the stimulus bill bailing out wall street, helping Americans is the only thing that will show that the government is still acting with the best interests of taxpayers.
Once the unemployment extension is passed, many are hoping that a new tier 5 bill will be introduced. This extension doesn't include a fifth tier of benefits, which is something that millions that have exhausted all four tiers of the current available benefits need.
