No that is not true. If you exhausted initial benefits or your tier prior to November 28, you get to move onto the next tier, and COMPLETE that tier. Those that exhausted their benefits after the cut off, will not move onto the next tier unless congress acts. I feel an extension will pass due to the 9.5% UE rate. Congress is playing games.
Shouldhaveleft, I am not sure where you are getting your info, but no one has determined that the recession is over.

The extended benefits will expire if congress can't agree on how to fund another extension. It's not a matter of them wanting to extend it, it's only a matter of how to pay for the extension.

The GOP will not vote to extend unless they get their tax cuts for the rich. That adds 700 billion to the deficit. Yet the GOP doesn't want to extend UE because of the deficit. So basically they are okay adding to the deficit as long as the rich benefit, but screw those who are in NEED. OUR GOVERNMENT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!
