Unemployment Benefits Extension 2010?
2010 is tough and people are getting more desperate as the time runs out and job searching seems to be futile. Now it seems the Congress has passed the vote to move forward the 30-day unemployment benefits extension.
The Senate voted 60 to 34 to move forward with extending federal unemployment benefits. It has become a familiar Washington exercise for Democrats to propose a short-term benefits extension and for many Republicans to oppose it because of cost.
The House approved the same measure in March, so it will go to President Obama's desk if it clears the Senate without amendments.
Who were the republicans that voted to move the bill forward?
