SOS Like I said, no clean bill no benefits. No Democrats are switching sides to overturn a veto on this issue

Well I think something is going to happen next week. One way or another the heat is on all them now, we just have to keep up the pressure and not let up.

"Lawmakers plan legislation next week to restore the benefits.

Senate leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, said Friday the formula change would be included with hundreds of other details in the roughly 300-page budget proposal the Senate will unveil next week.

House Speaker Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg, said Republicans are willing to compromise. House GOP members plan to develop legislation next week continuing to link the two issues, but demanding less from the governor. Thousands of state jobs are in the balance, Tillis said.

"We're going to try to reach a compromise," Tillis said.

Perdue said again Friday that she would immediately sign a benefits extension free of other conditions"

Lets hope this pans out next week and finally get a resolution to this agonizing issue....

Sorry I am not feeling good about this, I don't think they get it. There is nothing for the Governor to compromise on. It's a clean bill or nothing.

Tennessee House vote to extend unemployment benefits | timesfreepress.com

Tennessee is doing it, IMHO this actually puts more pressure on our Government to find a resolution.

A fellow intel gatherer with a superb BS meter! I agree with all you said here RB

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.

Yes, especially since we have 2 times as many unemployed as they do.
