    It took three months and multiple attempts to even get a compromised UI bill out of the Senate. Now this bill probably won't get a vote in the House, and if it does, it's only valid for one more month. After then, the "extend UI" game will restart.

    All for a process that was once bipartisan and routine when long-term unemployment was above a certain level. We aren't talking about passing some major reforms here.
