The Bill has passed finally with a 78-19. Mitch McConnell obviously still scared by his buddy buddy "Senate Elevator", voted against the bill. Why do Kentucky senators hate Kentucky (and everyone else downtrodden in the other 49 states?) But we know the answer to that.
And adding more to the hilarious details is the fact that "Senator Elevator's BS Amendment" failed 53-43.
I'll give you info on that real soon.
Updated: On the failed Bunning Amendment, guess who joined the Republicans in voting for it? If you guessed Blanche lincoln, Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman, than you are right! What a surprise.
Updated 2:And here are all the nutcases who hate the unemployed
Alexander, Barasso, Bennett of Utah, Bunning, Burr, Coburn, Cornyn, Corker, DeMint, Ensign, Enzi, Gregg, Hatch, Johanns, Sessions, Thune, Risch, Crapo,
And of course, last McConell, the minority leader, voted no to extend unemployed benefits.
But hey, there will be no reports or hard hitting interviews on why 19 SOP-ers decided to give many middle fingers to those jobless and struggling like no other in this country.
Updated 3: Oh, and to let you know, Obama signed it into law tonight.
