Following an appointment to fill the seat of the recently deceased Robert Byrd, Senate Democrats have staved off a Republican filibuster and are set to extend unemployment benefits. What do you think?

"Honestly, if people are still unemployed, they really should just talk to their friends' dads. Friends' dads always have some sort of job for you."

J.J. Reininger • Sales Planner

"Awesome! I've been saving up my unemployment for this kick-ass 1962 Les Paul ever since I got laid off in early ’08."

Matt Brown • Purchasing Specialist


"I can think of no more fitting tribute to the late senator than this, a vicious party-line vote."
