Baby hanger?

=====================================

I'm guessing the GOP being against this not so much because they hate the unemployed, but because the benefits would actually help the economy which would make Obama look good.  And they WILL NOT allow something to happen that would make a Democratic president look good.

Really, it's so bad now the GOP on the national level has actually become anti-American.

In January 2014:

But passage by the Senate was far from certain, and House Speaker John Boehner signaled Tuesday that he has no intention of bringing the extension to the floor of the House for a vote unless the price tag is offset by budget cuts.

FTFA: The legislation is based on a bipartisan deal struck last month between Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) and Dean Heller (R-NV). It includes retroactive compensation for the roughly 2 million unemployed workers who lost their benefits when the program expired on Dec. 28. The roughly $10 billion cost is covered with pension reforms and user fees.

OK, here is how it is paid for. All is now OK right?

"As the Speaker said months ago, we are willing to look at extending emergency unemployment insurance as long as it includes provisions to help create more private-sector jobs - but, last week, Senate Democratic Leaders ruled out adding any jobs measures at all," said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner, on Monday. "The American people are still asking, 'where are the jobs?' and House Republicans are focused on our jobs agenda for families and small businesses."

Is that why 6 of the 10 states with the highest unemployment are red states with Republican governors?

You're just saying that because they were willing to derail the US economy, destroy your credit rating and shut down the Government just to prevent people from buying private health insurance.

SevenizGud: Yeah, because our dearest Patriots like Franklin and Washington and Jefferson would have be totally cool with taking money from working people to give it to bottom-of-the-barrel turd-chucking losers.


One year later:  I just can't imagine why we couldn't convince all those turd-chucking losers to vote Republican.  It's a mystery.

SevenizGud: mrshowrules: How can the GOP be simultaneously against food stamps, unemployment benefits, minimum wage increase and job creation?

Uhm:

A) Pay stupid lazy people to be stupid and lazy
B) Pay stupid lazy people to be stupid and lazy
C) Pay stupid people more than the job is worth because the government says so
D) False - republicans are not against job creation.

Remember it is the GOP who have jobs. It is the stinky lefties who rely on the government to steal from actual useful humans to give to them.


I'm curious...what do you do for a living?  If the spittle-soaked tirades I see you constantly go on about the stupid, the lazy, the moochers, etc. are any indication, whatever it is you do must be the manliest man job ever held by a man that really should require two men.

I have to say at this point all they've been doing is extending benefits for the past 5 years.

Seriously. Grow a spine and make the farkers hire.

Don't forget much of the GOP comes from the retirement pool. Look at any Tea-Party rally...

monoski: Triple Oak: While the quote was posted above, it's worth mentioning again:

"The American people are still asking, 'where are the jobs?' and House Republicans are focused on our jobs agenda for families and small businesses."

Tell me, which ACA cut you voted on creates jobs and focuses on families and small businesses? Go on, I'll wait.

Oh, no one can answer because the House is on vacation again? Hmm...

In their tiny minds they feel if they repeal the ACA businesses will have more money to hire.


If the goal was for small and large business to hire, they should be pushing Single Payer.

"We want to hang a bunch of unrelated crap on this bill that has nothing to do with jobs or or those icky unemployed poors, but the DUMBOCRAPS won't let us. So we're going to stick it to the losers that vote for us, and blame somebody else for it. That's how we kept our LAZER-LIKE FOCUS ON JERBS!"

Let me guess, the focus rhymes with axe butts.
