In Pres. Obama's speech today, he stated the other party wanted to leave main street behind. The long term unemployed known as the 99ers, feel he has left us behind.

Then later he mentioned granting several more weeks of additional unemployment.

Did the President mean additional weeks added to the present 99 limit........or........did he mean EXTENDING PRESENT DEADLINES, which is what the BILL 4213 gives.
4213 gives EXTENSION ON DEADLINES, not actual added weeks.
Please answer. Thank you.
