Here are the results of our Unemployment Extension Poll. Politics Plus Polls are not scientific, because those who respond are not balanced according to demographic categories. Therefore, we do not accurately reflect the makeup of the US population. Nevertheless, our polls are often both accurate and indicative of the nation’s view.

This one is still up in the air, I understand but I got this from About.com
Job Searching' s Alison Doyle: Update February 27, 2014: News reports indicate that Senator Harry Reid is working on legislation that would provide for a six month retroactive extension of Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) which expired at the end of December. However, the Senate has adjourned until Monday, March 3 at 2 pm, so the earliest possible action will be next week.

I can't judge on the merits of this message, but will you keep us updated on this poll as time passes, TomCat?

Are there any documented people in balance?
NEWS TO ME, I thought that the whole country is tipping the scales at an enormous rate, both physically and mentally.
Thanks TC

Meanwhile in Nebraska, I sent Repug Gov. Heineman an email asking him to expand Medicare. I rec'd a letter from his office stating that he was absolutely against it because it would cost blah blah blah dollars, etc. etc etc.. In the meantime, he wants to buy a new spiffy airplane for 3.3 million. Sucks to live in a red state! Let's hope our ignorant Repug voters WAKE THE HELL UP.

I suspect the Repugs will vote yes on extending unemploymenst before Oct 1 due to the upcoming elections.

Interesting how the even split between the two options was. I find it sad that one party cannot empathize with the reality of the people affected and continue to spout myths.

Politics is (has been) a game of swapping out favor for favor. Though lately the system is very broken.

Oops - sorry - I meant "Medicaid".

Mid-terms and primaries....they will pass something because some of their constituents ARE unemployed and it is now affecting THEM. However, the Rethuglifascists, being who and what they are, will hold something hostage or want to cut something else equally needed by the people or they will try to screw with Medicare yet again.

Sigh.......

I voted "Only for something BIG in return." But after seeing what the bloody fools did to the veterans that fought the wars started by the Republicanus/Teabaggers, I don't think there is anything big enough to lure them towards extending unemployment benefits. The midterms should be interesting with all the Republicanus/Teabagger lying and dancing!

I voted 'No' – in my experience all the Right Wing can do is hate others – they simply cannot see that helping others helps the whole country and the whole world. SIGH!!!

If my projection is incorrect, which it may well be, I think it will be NO.
