Senate Republicans decided after the lat vote was defeated to ignore it. H Reid said it himself this morning. They do not want the extended benefits and are against them. This is not saying anything about Republicans , i am not being critical. . Its just there philosophy and what the party holds and there values. They want smaller govt and don't believe in or want smaller foodstamps, SSI Benefits welfare , unemployment benefits or any form of government assistance. Its just what the parties policy is. Unfortunately.

If this does not get pass the procedural vote today then yes its probably the end for a while. But I cant see it not passing the procedural vote. Even the Senators who will eventually vote NO when a final vote is taken next week will vote yes just to try to get there amendments in. (what they did last month) Then when H Reid does not allow unlimited amendments (Which would make this go on for weeks) they will change there vote. If this didn't even get by the procedural today then its done for good. Most votes atelsat get by procedural to the debate stage.

This is my first time commenting on this site but I've been reading it all. I have 3 kids and was a few weeks into the first extension when it was cut off RIGHT AFTER CHRISTMAS. Along with the stresses of paying bills and wondering how thats going to happen, there is also the stress on the family.Because I'm stressed I have less patience with my children and I hate to admit that but I'm sure I'm not alone. Families are starting to suffer and they keep delaying.
If anything this has made me start paying attention and I will now be watching and learning so I can vote the right way.

I know the big R philosophy of "little government", its the extreme right philosophy of "lazy immoral people" that bothers me.

The small R extremist continue harping about a "lack of jobs" AND complaining people are lazy for not taking this lack of jobs work (non-exsistent jobs)

this logic does not hold up very well, but it caters to the emotionally charged, mentally challenged
crowd that is the BASE of the small R people

then they have the nerve to talk about a higher morality????

I wrote Pat Toomey and let him know of my extreme disappointment of voting against the extension. In my area it is not unusual for some jobs to get 200-250 applications (for a single job!). Our classifieds are extremely small and sometimes non-existent. I've applied for a ton of jobs and haven't received one interview. It's to the point where I may move to Florida for a new job market. I have worked since I was 11 years old and this was the first I've ever had to use UE because I was fired from an evil company that blatantly placed the staff and clients in dangerous situations with no remorse. Since PA is an at will state I was basically fired for "whining". I have paid into UE all my working life and now I can't get it when I need help? It's pathetic how we are being treated and being insulted along the way ("get them lazy people up to find jobs, etc.). I've worked f'n hard all my life.

We were at 6.7% last month; 7.6% on 01/20/2009. Past 10% by the end of Q1 2009.

Last I checked 6.7% is less than both 7.6% and 10%.
