Vote Today Fails To Get 2/3 Of The House

The US House of representatives failed to receive a super majority vote today under suspension of the rules to extend HR 4213 for another three months.  FIREDOGLAKE also has the vote today tallied at 258-154 (falling shy of the 2/3 needed under suspension of the rules).  This bill was brought quickly to the floor and just announced yesterday.

With a vote of 258-154 in the House the bill is certain to pass the House of Representatives soon but no one knows how long the wait will be in the United States Senate or if they will be able to meet the deadline that is counting down on the right panel of this blog.  More information as it is known will be posted.

There is no indication whatsoever that additional weeks of unemployment will ever be added beyond the maximum possible amount of 99 weeks.
