From Blog for Democracy:

Senator Chambliss included two interesting quotes in his weekly email newsletter. The first relates to HR 4213, the extension of unemployment benefits. “During a time of economic hardship, I don’t believe we should allow provisions such as the extension of emergency unemployment benefits to expire.” The second relates to the financial regulatory bill. “While the issues our economy has faced over the past two years have made it obvious that Congress needs to apply more regulation to large Wall Street firms..

Yet, Chambliss and Isakson have voted multiple times against extending unemployment benefits, most recently on Wednesday.

Additionally, there are 17 Senators in states with double-digit employment that voted against extended jobless benefits. Guess who they are?
