House Votes To Extend Unemployment Benefits

With the bail out bill dominating the news last week for obvious reasons I wanted to make sure everyone caught this important vote in The House. They passed HR 6867 Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2008.

The vote was 368-28.

Howie says only a few far right zealots voted against it. Can you name them?
