7,000 a day running out of unemployment benefits

At least the bank bonuses are flowing. Maybe some are going retro in DC and think that trickle down economics is back in style. Looking at how bizarre many are treating the banks (and allowing them to go back to their old ways) anything is possible. For those not working in the upper echelons of banking, life is different.

Another day, another 7,000 people run out of unemployment benefits.

One month after the House passed a bill extending unemployment benefits, the issue is still being debated in the Senate.

Democratic leaders in the Senate introduced a bill two weeks ago to lengthen benefits in all states by 14 weeks. Those that live in states with unemployment greater than 8.5% would receive an additional six weeks.

Meanwhile, Orrin Hatch wants everyone to focus on college football. How clueless could he be?
