I've got one:

Since the federal government had already agreed to fully fund EB benefits, why did they try to make Democrats pay for the bill again by giving concessions to Republicans? Their actions clearly indicated that they cared less about the unemployed than the Democrats did. Republicans only cared about the unemployed if they could be used as a tool to twist the arms of Democrats into giving in to Republican demands on totally unrelated issues.

That's what I would ask.

laidoffafter50 - I can't find the audio feed. Were they saying that they are preparing to try to override the veto or am I just wishful thinking?

The audio is located on the player at end of post at this link (http://www.news-record.com/blog/53964/entry/116520 - broken link). Tillis addresses the bill at 7:25 in the player.

It's not very heartening though.

that is NOT good news!

What it definitely looks like is that the Republicans refuse to look at the bills that are currently there. In their minds the only option is a VETO or a NEW bill altogether which they will take their time to comstruct.

I really can't believe we are in this situation!

No time for unemployed workers | NC Policy Watch with Fitzsimon & Schofield

"Now ten days later, the workers still have no benefits as their rent is coming due and there’s no money for food and gas. Lawmakers could still help at any time by passing the simple legislation to extend the benefits which workers would receive retroactively to April 16th....."
