Now exactly how is paying someone to sit on their ass better than paying them to work on some project that will actually add something to the economy? This Orwellian doublespeak from these people is absolutely insane. And the weirdest thing is that I believe Pelosi is actually starting to believe it.
They enable unemployment by making it an occupation.
Absolutely insane. My country has become an idiocracy.
Couldn't agree with you more.
Why would all Republicans and one democrat strike down extended unemployment.
Why is it that the Dems most times try to do what's right and Repubs tend to do the wrong thing?
Politics is for suckers.
could there have been any earmarks or pork barrel attached?
Why can't congress write a clean bill?
I'd bet it had to do with the add-ons.........and then they say:
Oh, you killed the UE benefits bill.....
maybe, just write a plaing UE benefits bill, and, it might work?
just a novel thought. IMHO.
