In fact, one of my colleagues pointed out this morning that Nancy Pelosi pretty much told the unemployed not to count on the GOP for extensions.
If that is the case, then I don't see why she and her democratic colleagues don't take the initiative to fight tooth and nail for the extension of benefits and possibly the Tier 5 before they get out of office.
Perhaps Ms. Pelosi is a little too bitter about handing over her gavel to John Boehner?
If the Unemployment extension isn't on the Lame Duck agenda then what is? Well, an Employment Anti-Discrimination act, the DREAM Act 2010, COLA Social Security adjustments, Continued Resolution Spending Bill, and of course the Bush Tax Cuts.
Just a question - what good is an Anti-discrimination employment act if everyone is unemployed?
Do you think that the Congress has their priorities in order, or do you think that the unemployment extension should be higher on their list of priorities?
