Unemployment Extension July 20 2010 : Congress Votes Yes to Extend Unemployment Benefits Extension

  US Senate in a 60-40 vote, voted to extend unemployment benefits; this was the fourth attempt made by Congress over the last few months and each of the votes before did not make it through. President Obama signed the bill.

This latest extension will allow unemployment benefits to continue through the end of November. The bill will raise the deficit by $33.3 billion, and should cover approximately 2.1 million people. The original vote made just a few weeks ago did not get support from Republicans because it added to the US deficit.
