However, once February 28th rolls around, many unemployed are going to be on the edge of their seats trying to find out what will happen. Why? Because the GOP is taking control of the House.
The GOP has been resistant to passing the extensions, as they don't want to add to the nation's deficit. However, failing to pass any unemployment extension would prove to be fatal to many campaigns.
What are your thoughts on the unemployment extension? Do you think that the current measure will pass - and what do you think will happen on February 28th.
Keep in mind - this doesn't add an additional tier, it only extends the unemployment extensions currently in place.
