    • On November 18, 2010, by Abaratarrr - this bill is not an unemployment extension, it just extends the dead lines to sign up for the current unemployment extension for the newly unemployed

    • On November 19, 2010, by MTeinert - So what you're saying is lets not put our kids in debt by helping the middle class by extending unemployment for the people who's jobs were shipped overseas, instead we should put them even more in debt than that by paying trillions down on a war that is not paid for to fight so called terrorists. Oh yeah we should also put them more in debt by extending the tax breaks for the top 2% of people who got us in to this mess in the first place. Let's just keep shitting on the middle class to help the super wealthy and watch our kids starve in the mean time until they still have to carry the burden of our nations debt. Im sure this will help the future of our country. Good job you dousche bag.
