35. Oh, FFS. It extends it for one year. There's a reason for that.
Republicans can't vote against this bill because PATRIOT's in it now. But in one year it'll be up for renewal all on its own.

Meanwhile, this bill extends unemployment payments for those whose benefits have run out, and creates a massive subsidy program to help the jobless continue paying for health insurance.

Still want to kill the jobs bill? :eyes:
