11 business days? I thought they were only taking off this Friday (as usual) and all of next week. That's only 6 business days. Are you saying they're taking TWO weeks off?????????
didn't reid say yesterday that they will definitely vote on it today? that is probably why it is not scheduled on the calender amisi

I agree the Congress are Pimps, are flunkey for the corporation. We have to vote all of them out the office, also along with the State and Local level. They know American people are swamp with chaos, like marry life, debt, food, shelter and etcs. In the 1990's things were fine in the USA, everyone were doing well. Then the corporations that ran by the Koch brothers hated that, they want to get rid of the middle class and just have poor and rich. We have to stop them by not supporting their services and products. We get the government back if put our egos to the aside. I want things like in the late 1970's and 1990's where people were happy and stress free. Its going to be battle, we all can stop this madness. I see the Congress don't want to help the famers no more, by not renewing the Farm Bill. Very sad. President Obama have to stop being a wimp and speak up and be a Man. Also NJGUY524, its not 1.4 million people that being effected, its close to 10 million people. The media tell half-truth. Check out the link below.

He was just talking in CSPAN and said there was a vote scheduled for 2:30 today but it is going to be put off "until another time" without specifying when. More stalling while at the same time blaming Republicans for there not being a vote.

There is no vote today. He just announed they have a new bill to debate and vote on by Friday. Then he ripped it as bad and Mitch O'Connell came out and said he doesnt like it either. Its wacky. They will now debate a deal they don't like and vote on Friday. This is just set up to fail. What a mess.

Had to rep you.

I have a job and I'm glad because I don't have to depend on the idiots in Washington to make my house payment. It's a complete joke.

The news just said Harry Reid is expecting a final vote on Friday in the Senate to rectify the unemployment extension. All the dems are on board but he needs more repubs to pass the bill. I think the Republicans have it wrong on this issue because unemployment is not a partisan issue. The majority are older workers over 50 who tend to be more conservative and vote Republic. Im glad the Democrats are vocal because the Republicans are not interested. Im not unemployed but I know of friends and family who are.

I always used to wonder why a person would go through all that trouble campaigning for these congressional positions. Now I realize why. Their staff is also well paid.

Most of 'em, after a while, become millionaires. Saw/read something somewhere last week that over 50% in the House are now millionaires. This is a great job for a young struggling lawyer. Lookin' at you Duffy from WI and Brown - who lost in MA and has now moved to NH to take another shot. These guys run for office for a reason, and the first reason is NOT "public service." It's all about the money and lifetime pension. $174k/yr. salary, who knows what perks. It's no wonder they keep those jobs for 30+ years.
