    vote: Empty stomachs, sure, but at least our pockets are lined.

  • Grant Chesley

    None. Congress is getting too much money and benefits, period, and the vote is not over standard unemployment (which is through the states), but the “emergency” extended coverage that some people have been on for over three years. If they seriously can’t find a job after three freakin years, they either need to be getting aid to go back to school or something… like try.
