I can't confirm this. I just called Senator Feinstein's office and they say that this has been carried over until Monday. Thomas.gov also confirms that. It does NOT appear that this was passed today. Where did you get the info that it passed at 5:40????

It did go to the senate yesterday to be voted on, but, Senator Jon Kyl (Republican) from Arizona voted against it, said the Republicans needed more time to read over and make ammendments to the exsisting bill. So senator Kyl, how would you like to live like all the millions who are out of jobs and losing everything they've worked for all of their lives? You would pass this bill NOW!!!!

The republicans are stalling on this as retaliation against us unemployed voters for not picking a republican for the white house but we'll remember this when is time to vote again.

I'm not sure why people keep saying the fourth unemployment extension (HR 3548) has passed. I know that we all want them to do it now (hell, they should have done it at least a month ago!), but it is so frustrating to be told that it has been passed when it hasn't! The correct answer is: No, it hasn't even been voted on yet. The Senate has voted to consider it--that's all. Don't take my word for it. In fact, don't listen to hearsay about this sort of thing--go right to the source: www.senate.gov  and check out the Senate calendar. It says that they are going to "consider it" again on Monday, November 2. We will not know anything until next week at the earliest. .

They voted to "talk" about it. They didn't "pass" it. Go figure. It gave us all false hope.

Unemployment Extension Set for Passage Next Week
October 30, 2009 by senatus



It appears increasingly likely that Senators will pass the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act (H.R. 3548) sometime next week.

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) indicated this morning that if Monday’s procedural (cloture) motion is adopted on the bill, House and Senate action could be completed by Tuesday which would allow the measure to be sent to President Obama for his signature.

Since the Senate is offering a substitute amendment to the originally-passed House bill, House members must vote one more time after the Senate completes action before work on the legislation can end.  If Senators adopt cloture on Monday, at least one more vote on final passage will likely be necessary.

According to Congressional Quarterly, the Senate’s version would “provide 14 additional weeks of unemployment aid in all 50 states.”

People in states with jobless rates exceeding 8.5 percent would get an additional six weeks of benefits. Currently, 27 states, along with the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, would qualify as high-unemployment states.
ALLAH IS THE GREATEST PROVIDER!
