The unemployment compensaiton extension failed to pass in the senate yesterday. Now Congress is taking a break until Jan 27 did they not just reconvene? I wish I had a job where I only worked so many weeks a month. But to be fair they probably have other work that they have to do during this week. But for them to fail to pass something that would help out people of the United States is sad. It seems that congress wants to hurt people who are already hurting instead of making cuts to htose who are rich. Is it true that the rich keep getting rich while the poor keep getting poorer>
