In addition to those listed above  that voted “Nay” there were 22 Representative that didn’t vote, as follows:

Barrett (SC) Boozman Brown (SC) Brown, Corrine Brown-Waite, Ginny Coble Davis (KY) Delahunt Duncan Fallin Gallegly Kennedy Kirk Linder Lynch McMahon Moran (KS) Moran (VA) Radanovich Space Terry Westmoreland

Extended unemployment benefits for those out of work expire December 1, 2010.  Extended benefits would add $12.5 billion to the deficit, which is a drop in the bucket when compared to the $700 billion the Republicans want to add in extending the Bush tax-cuts.
