Rep. Bob Etheridge  (D-NC) says when Congress reconvenes next week the House of Representatives will revisit COBRA subsidies and aid to state governments.
Both provisions were cut from a jobs bill that passed the House before the Memorial Day recess amid concerns about the ballooning deficit.
Etheridge, who serves on the powerful House Committee on Ways and Means , tells NC Policy Watch that states need extra Medicaid money and laid-off workers clearly need help in affording health insurance. The 2nd District Congressman also wants Congress to do more to protect the jobs of classroom teachers.
