GOP kills Jobless Bill

Senator Ben Nelson D-NB
More than 1.2 million people have lost unemployment benefits averaging $300 a week thanks to 47 Republicans in Congress and Democrats (in name only), Ben Nelson and  and one Independent, Joe Lieberman. (Robert Bryd of W. Va did not vote.) At a time when unemployment sports double digit numbers in some states and the economy struggles to recover, short sighted legislstors follow Herbert Hoover's doctrine of "don't spend, save, and balance the budget". These are noble sentiments, but not now with the country's struggling economy.

If you read some of the insulting statements from GOP Representatives and Senators, you clearly understand that they are out of touch with working folks.  Their focus is on the welfare of big business and the oil companies, not the average American man and woman.
