A glimmer of decency?

There appear to be cracks developing in Republicansí armor of indifference to the suffering of 45,000 unemployed workers whose benefits ran out 34 days ago.
Republican Rep. Carolyn Justice told the Wilmington Star-News this week that she had urged the Republican legislative leadership to find away to restore the benefits to the workers.

All of our efforts I believe are making a difference and I am so proud to have been in this fight with all of you on this board. People working together can make a difference. I am tearing up, but I am going to send more emails. I could hug you all!
Rep. Justice is certainly at the top of the list of Republicans we could lobby to sign the discharge petition. We need to add more Republicans to the list -- anybody want to nominate a few?
