Those reportsabout an $80 billion Senate jobs package? “Wrong,” a Senate Democratic aide told TWI. The staffer indicated this afternoon that Democrats are weighing a number of proposals to tackle the unemployment crisis but remain undecided about which route they’ll go. The $80 billion package, the aide said, was just one option that happened to leak to the press.
“Everything that was in that document has changed,” the aide said. “It is not at all where we are now.”
One detail from those reports, though, is probably accurate. The Democrats will likely push an extension of unemployment and COBRA benefits separately, the aide said.
