    Neither of my Senators here in Indiana have yet to even say a word about this or reply to my numerous e-mails or phone calls and our rate is at 9.6%. I am registering independant tomorrow so i can vot both of these weasles out of office

    I think the number of people in congress should be tied to unemployment. 10% unemployment, 10% of the people in congress lose their jobs!!!!

    Kyl? He’s just reminding those neocons in his party that still believe there is an Al Queda, that funding the unemployment bill may slow down troop enlistment for their much anticipated oil and opium adventures in Afghanistan. He fails to realize that most of us are over 50. What a douche!
