Garrett Votes for Unemployment Extension

Well, this one happened after I did my little run down, and was a little surprising. Representative Scott Garrett joined the vast majority of the House in voting to extend unemployment benefits.

Readers may remember, Garrett was one of only four Representatives to vote against extension of benefits back in 2003.

With 83 Representatives voting against the extension this time around, I was certain Garrett would be one of them. I was pleasantly surprised he wasn't.

When I read that congress passed an unemployment extension, the first thing I did was go and check the roll call. It was surprising to see Garrett on the Aye side (for once).
