Unemployment Benefits Extension Vote 2010 – Senate Passes Bill – There is finally some progress for the unemployment benefits extension 2010 as the Senate voted in favor of helping the two and a half million Americans still jobless.
The Senators voted 60-40 to move ahead on the bill and now a final vote from the House will be held today and it should end up in President Obama’s hands to sign by the end of this week, if not, early next week.
This should definitely help out a lot of people out but don’t jump for joy just yet. I believe the money towards the extension is down a lot compared to years past. I think I read it is going to $34 billion cost which is down from over $100 billion previously. Although, it is down, the good news is the fact that this money will help out regardless.
I didn’t get a chance to read the full details of the Unemployment Benefits Extension 2010 for July 19th but this would be the eighth extension since July 2008, which has cost taxpayers a little more than $120 billion.
