REPUBLICANS HALT UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS BILL IN SENATE---WTF??
ONCE AGAIN REPUBS STOPPING SENATE FROM VOTING ON UNEMPLOYMENT BENNIES.

A day after the Senate moved forward to pass the unemployment insurance extension to help millions of Americans fighting to get back on their feet and find work, the partisan minority in the Senate is yet again obstructing passage of this bill. After blocking this aid three separate times over the past weeks, Republicans have once again refused to reach an agreement and allow this bill to come to the floor for a vote quickly so these benefits can be restored. Republican obstruction has already cost 2.5 million Americans essential aid they need to pay their rent, put food on the table, and take care of their kids. By the end of this week, roughly 350,000 more Americans could be added to that number. The livelihoods of nearly 3 million Americans shouldn’t hinge on partisan game playing in Washington. This latest move gives the partisan minority thirty more hours to stall in the Senate, but that means thirty more hours of suffering for these hardworking families trying to get by.

On the flip side, if the Dem's would come up with a plan to PAY FOR THE EXTENSIONS by reducing a program here or there or better yet TAKE IT FROM THE TARP funds then there would be no issue.

I'm neither a Rep or a Dem. This bit about the Party of No is getting old, when the Dem's will not budge either.

Obama has not spent all of the stimulus money. He is hordeing it for his re election and Democrat campaings.

The Republicans are trying to force Obama to spend some of it, on things to stimulate the economy including unemployment. Not Democrat election campaings.

Of course the Media won't tell you that.

It seems that Uncle Obama is doing the same with his Insurance Co bailout, his Wall Street Bail Out (not to mention his Crap & Trade bail out for commodity traders).

CNN says it passed. Obama says he will do it again in November.

Problem is none of the Democrats are willing to cut any other spending to pay for this.

It is just going to be added to the current multi-billion dollar deficit that Obama claims he wants to cut.

Here's a thought. Take all the money from the earmark spending projects attached to all the bills the Democrats have passed in the past 19 months and use that.

The other issue that has to be dealt with is just when does unemployment compensation become an entitlement. It is now going on two years.

Unfortunately, we do have some people collecting unemployment that turn their noses up at work they consider to be beneath them. They have not gotten into the mindset of any job is better than none even if it is not what you sued to do.

Of course there are many in places where there are few, if any, jobs to be had. However, if the only job around is digging ditches, then you dig ditches. If it is picking crops or doing lawncare, then that is what you do. There are millions of illegals out there who seem to find work even in the regions with the highest unemployment. Maybe it is not great work, but it is work and some money.
