I dunno this sounds like a Demorat trick. Just enough of them vote along with the Republicans to block the extension and then blame them and call them Scrooges for ruining all the unemployeds Christmas. Will have to see how this plays out.
The first order of business must be to get this economy moving. Then we can deal with habitual long term unemployeds.
The smart move would have been to cut foreign aid first.
Well then the Republicans need to get out in the media and set the record straight
The GOP and the remaining “Blue Dogs” want to extend benefits, but do so from Stimulus money.
Boehner should hold a press conference tomorrow. Instead, he’ll probably cry about how tough he had it years ago.
