40. No one here is talking about trading the UI extensions for anything. I've called both my
Senators today to tell them I don't support the payroll tax holiday and I prefer the restoration of the Making Work Pay tax credit which helps more poor people.

Bernie Sanders is the last person who could be accused of wanting the poor to suffer. He's about the only one who ever bothers to mention us.
