Do us all a favor and go back and look at the posts that link to news stories and videos. Be careful, you might just learn something.

I live in Union County and there was an article two weeks ago on the front page of the Indian Trail Trader talking about a possible veto proof budget and how bad it would be for the schools. I hope the Republicans are not attaching the EB to that bill. I can see Perdue saying "why don't the just send a clean bill" Now on the flip side this budget that they were talking about in the paper was a "veto proof" budget so if that is truly the case we win. I do know that there are a lot of people against school cuts. Just my two cents. Like I have always said I hope I eat crow or at least I hope this is truly a "veto proof" bill with EB in it.

Thanks to you guys for trying to explain this....
The 14 additional weeks are an add on to tier 1 of EUC08 if the Federal level pushes this Unemployment Extension - H.R.589: Emergency Unemployment Compensation Expansion Act of 2011 - U.S. Congress - OpenCongress through.

"Republican Senate leader Phil Berger says the benefits will be in the Senate's budget proposal next week."

Tied to the budget. I have read nothing about a clean bill. The Governor will need a clean bill to sign, if the Republicans really want to have something passed!
Another tied on bill is not going anywhere!

As I understood UE was currently good up to Tier 4. After that tier is when this most recent cutoff comes in and this is what they are trying to get passed now. If I understand corrrectly?

He's a politician, by nature a snake with a forked tongue. Politicians don't think linear like normal people. That being said, if you watch the video again and look at his body language, he is being more honest than not. Pay careful attention to his eyes, he is not looking for prepared words, he is looking to answer the question. His shoulders also show that he is being more honest than not. The predominate shoulder rises when the question is asked, showing that he is looking to block the question, but after the reporter completes the question, his shoulder goes back down. That's a sign of submission. So he let's his guard down and answers the question to the best of his honest ability.

That being said, he is still a politician, and as such is used to giving "pat" answers to questions. So again, read between the lines.

Don't be so sure about that. That might be the one I was talking about in my last post if that is the case it has a good shot of being over ridden. RangerBob make no mistake any bill that is not a clean bill. WILL be VETOED by the Gov. that is the point she is making. It is up to the Legislative to override that veto. I am actually pretty excited about this one.
