It's really too bad we even have to talk about unemployment insurance extensions.

If the Republicans had not blocked Obama's 2011 Job's bill, we could have had millions of Americans building and refurbishing necessary infrastructure that would keep this nation competitive.

Instead, we have already paid out BILLIONS to pay people for doing nothing, and we'll pay BILLIONS more.

And that's all thanks to Republican obstructionism.

Face it folks, Right Wingers are America's Enemy Number ONE.

The deal will end jobless payments to people earning more than 1 million dollars a year --
Are you kidding Me ? If you can make a million dollars a year and still get jobless benefits something is wrong with this country. I can not believe that anyone would vote for this without changing the rules.No wonder we have a spending problem.
