http://news.bostonherald.com/election2004/view.bg?articleid=27521 A vote to extend unemployment benefits was struck down 50-49. Kerry was the Senator that didnt show up. Here is whats interesting about this. personally im fine with it not being extended we have a good economy. But Kerry has tried to position himself as champion for the little people. Part of his platform was to extend unemployment. This is one of his issues. And he skips the vote. What do we have to expect if he becomes President?
