Arizona Democrats To Donate Paychecks To Jobless After Failed Special Session

Post by Guest on Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:36 pm

Democratic members of the Arizona legislature are going to donate their paychecks to the unemployed people they failed to help in a special session earlier this month.

Arizona lost its eligibility for the final 20 weeks of benefits for the long-term jobless because lawmakers didn't tweak state law to conform to a new federal standard created by Congress in December to keep the benefits flowing. As many as 45,000 Arizonans will miss out on the extended benefits by the end of the year.

This is why I love this site. I live in AZ and didn't even see this article. Notice you don't see any Republicans offering to donate their paychecks...

Daniel's a bulldog! He terrorized local, state and federal bureaucracies, Dems and Repubs alike. He played "bad cop" to my "good cop." After a discussion with him, I (the Sierra Club) seemed so darned reasonable...

He needs to be in the US Congress! That is the kind of person that will actually try to get things done!

I'd like to see all our politicians donate their paychecks to the unemployed but I know that will never happen

We're all shocked, haven't heard a thing on any local or State news stations or websites about what Daniel is proposing.
