Anybody who's out of work in Michigan knows they can't get an unemployment check for as long as they used to.
Ever since the federal government stopped offering emergency benefits extensions at the end of last year, Michiganders can get just 20 weeks of jobless benefits.
They used have up to 99 weeks, back when the recession was at its worst.
For months now, Democrats and a handful of Republicans have been trying to get those extensions up and running again.
But some Republicans say no.
