She must be running for re-election
The Senate is working on a slightly different package that would also extend unemployment benefits in certain areas and give money to some people (some disabled veterans, for example) who don't have any earned income to report. Not unexpectedly, Republicans in the Senate filibustered this plan. Equally predictable, media accounts didn't use the "f" word to describe the maneuver*.
What was totally unexpected, at least from my perspective, is that Liddy Dole voted with the Democrats to close debate on the plan.
She must be feeling the heat.
*UPDATE: I take that back.
