41. The "commentary" you quote is incorrect.
Edited on Fri Apr-10-09 09:49 AM by tabasco
"Several governors who initially voiced concerns about expanding state unemployment benefits to qualify for federal stimulus funds have decided to accept the money. Some were feeling the heat from jobless constituents, while others took comfort in learning recently from the federal Department of Labor that they could curtail eligibility later on."

Mean-spirited, America-hating republicans are simply throwing a fit that working people, instead of corporations, are getting a break.
