    I sure wish they include “those who already ran out” instead of continuing to say “those who will run out!” There are thousands that haven’t had an income for months!!

  • Jans1116 10/27/2009 10:02am

    What about those that have run out of benefits, hellooooooo Patty!

  • jelee 10/27/2009 10:13am

    I think what would be surprising is to have the Repubilican’s side recant
    just about 6:25 pm and go for unanimious consent, in that making them look like hero’s while all in the same instant being a thorn in the side of the dem’s

    O.K I just saw where jans1116 just posted the Vote will now be at 6:00pm
