BREAKING NEWS-@ 2:04 PM 11/18/10 - MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall reported at approximately 2:04PM, that the initial vote on the unemployment insurance extension, has failed by a House of Representatives vote of 258 to 154.

The legislation which the House considered this afternoon was the "Emergency Unemployment Compensation Continuation Act"- HR-6419, introduced by Representative Jim McDermott (D-WA) on November 17, 2010.

The bill would have extended unemployment benefits for those between 73-99 weeks, until February 2011, providing a three month extension. 

It is unknown when the House will bring HR-6419 to the House floor for an additional vote. It widely suspected that a re-vote on the measure, would not be in time to stop the November 30th expiration date of the current act, HR-4213 "The Unemployment Compensation Act of 2010.

What are your thoughts on this article? How do you feel about the growing believe that unemployment insurance compensation will not be renewed, prior to the November 30th expiration date for those under 99 weeks? Feel free to comment on this story, below!
