i'm just a simple person so lamens terms please
Think of it as a stimulus in a way. If X amount of money is spent Y amount money is put into local economics and Z amount of jobs are created. It's based on the amount of money being spent ...

I lucked up and got a fairly well paying job(for my area)today. It's not in the field I've worked in for last 20 years and nowhere near the money I'm use to. But it's a job and it'll work until I can do better. I wish you all the best and I hope you can hold on until things get back to normal.

I totally disagree with you. Why would the Republicans want to take us hostage in the first place. They could have attacked or hijacked some other issues, but not the unemployment extensions. Use Keystone on something else, NOT THE UNEMPLOYED, PERIOD. Dems are also at fault, but they didn't start this whole mess.

At this point it looks like this garbage is about to roll into April. They don't plan on finalizing votes until next week. Isn't the House of Reps on vacation for Official Coffee Day for two weeks?

Yep, if they cant get it out of the senate by next week sorry to say but your looking at end of April or May at this point. House is off after next thursday so no chance they can get it before they come back March 24th and then they are back for 2 weeks and off for most of April for Easter Break from April 10th to April 28th . Would give them just over 2 weeks. At this point it looks grim if the Senate cant get this done before the break next Thursday.

Looks like its next Wed or Thursday or even after they come back at the end of the month . What a joke.

Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, said Wednesday that he will need to “pull out all the stops” to get enough GOP support for a 6-month extension to unemployment benefits that could come up for a vote next week.
“I have to pull out all the stops to try to pick up another Republican vote, it’s not Democrats I have to worry about,” he said. “It’s getting the Republicans to allow these millions of people who are desperate long-term unemployed a shot in the arm.”
Mr. Reid said the weather, which cancelled two days of votes in the Senate this week, has made it difficult to fit everything on to the schedule, but that he plans to make a decision on when to bring up the unemployment insurance vote soon.
A spokesman for Mr. Reid said it could come up by Wednesday or Thursday of next week, barring any unexpected delays or a change in the situation in Ukraine that would call for immediate action in Congress.
If the Senate does not consider the extension next week, it would have to wait until the Senate returns to Washington on March 24 after a weeklong vacation.
