Washington Times | Dem Rep: Unemployment checks are in the mail

For Rep. Danny K. Davis, Illinois Democrat, the "fiscal cliff" fight came  down to one thing: the unemployment checks the government will still be able to  send to thousands of his constituents.

"When I go to church on Sunday, I know that I will see people with the  assurance that pretty soon an unemployment check is in the mail," he said.

Mr. Davis said he’d come to the floor Tuesday after speaking with two  constituents who’d called his office begging him to vote against the cliff deal,  which extended tax cuts for most Americans, allowed rates to rise for the  wealthiest and included $330 billion in other new spending such as the expanded  unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless.
