Republicans make me sick! They are old. They are wealthy. They are laughing at unemployed Americans who are in need. They are staunch supporters of tax cuts for the wealthy and easing regulations on big business. They support BP, and their oil disaster in the Gulf, not wanting to hold them accountable.
And now, just a few minutes ago, thanks to REPUBLISCUM Senators, 1 million Americans will lose their unemployment benefits tomorrow. Republican Senators stood together to block cloture on a jobs bill that would have advanced legislation to extend unemployment benefits through November. Following the Senate's 57-41 vote that prevents the American Jobs and Closing Tax Loopholes Act from receiving a fair up-or-down vote. This is an absolute disgrace. Do Republicans not understand the nightmare that millions upon millions wake up to everyday across this country? Once again Republican Senators sent hard hit families to the back of the line in favor of hedge fund managers and Wall Street millionaires. Republicans have chosen for Americans to lose and have decided the American people don't matter.
To make matters worse, the Republican leader stood up and joked about the plight of unemployed Americans. After Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) took to the floor and begged his fellow senators to "do the right thing" and pass the latest revision of the tax and benefits extension act, McConnell LAUGHED and joked, calling the measure the "H. R. 4213 Deficit Extenders Act." Meanwhile, millions of families with children will starve as the Republican McConnell LAUGHS!
