There was no hurdle in the senate it was more like a sprint. Why not try to create new jobs not raise funds for unemployment? After five years of recession you would thing they would be trying to improve the economynot help it limp along.
I am one of the 1.3 million Amercians effected by this! I've been trying to find a way to start my own business as I'm tired of going on interviews thinking they were good, solid interviews and never hear back. I'm soon to be 65 and I feeling that my age is the biggest factor (even though that's illegal). My drawback is that I have no capital to work with to start up, which includes, licenses, bonding and other small items needed to get going. So here I'm stuck in la-la land like being in a boat in the middle of the lake and no oars!
