    districts, they can basically tell us all to go pound sand and their constituents will nod their heads sagely.

    •  but they used to approve UI extensions all the (0+ / 0-)

      time. Until we allowed UI to be included as a bargaining chip in other things. I think as recently as 2009, they approved UI extensions multiple times.

      •  UnaS - but these extra weeks of federal benefits (0+ / 0-)

        all have had finite periods, after which they ended.
