Sherrod Brown: No recess until jobless benefits pass
Right on, Sherrod!!

The good Senator named Brown is doing his damnedest to get jobless benefits passed.

The House and Senate should stay in session until they can pass an extension of unemployment insurance, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said Wednesday.

Brown urged leaders to keep Congress in session and eat into the holiday weekend and next week's recess, if necessary, to pass a long-delayed extension of benefits and tax cuts that's stalled in the Senate.

"For too many weeks, Republicans have blocked legislation that would extend tax cuts for small businesses, close tax loopholes that encourage corporations to ship jobs overseas, and extend unemployment insurance," Brown said in a statement. "Congress should not adjourn for the July 4 holiday weekend without passing an extension of unemployment insurance."

This is the message Harry Reid needs to hear: keep them in. Bring out the cots. Only let them out to attend Sen. Byrd's funeral, and then bring them back. One thing we know, breaking out the cots tends to break loose Republican votes. Take their vacation away until they help the 1.2 million Americans who have prematurely lost their unemployment insurance.

7. I want to vote for Sherrod for President one day.
Sen. Brown is the real deal, and I thank the powers that be that we have him here in Ohio.

13. Not Only My Senator, But Also My FAVORITE Senator
I love the way you've been fighting for us these last several years. This is the kind of stuff that has made you my favorite Senator. And it's not just because your MY Senator, or that you come from my hometown, or that my dad worked with your mom. It's because you actually have the guts to roll up your sleeves and get in there and slug it out with those who would hold this country back. And don't worry, because here in November, we're going to send you a tag-team partner named Lee Fisher to take that dead weight you call George Voinovich off your back and get Ohio's representation in the Senate fighting for Ohioans again.

15. I'm with Senator Brown and I support this action.
I've been thinking (certainly hoping) Reid may try this manuever... seems like it was being discussed here last week.
