Republicans Should Hold the Line on Unemployment Benefits

The filibuster is back. At least, that is, on legislation. On January 14, Senate Republicans blocked two proposals from Harry Reid that would have extended long-term unemployment benefits. The first was a $17 billion bill that would have extended benefits through November, with the only pay-for being a promised cut in spending—in 2024. It failed by a vote of 52 to 48.
