Barbara Lee on 99ers + HR 589

H.R. 589. Rep. Barbara Lee speaks on her bill for 99ers, H.R. 589, at a Progressive Caucus press conference this morning,  Though there is a bunch of language and references to “unemployment insurance” in President Obama’s jobs plan it does not specifically mention if the extension is for 99ers.  The President’s job plan would cost $447 Billion and Rep. Lee’s bill is $16 Billion.
