Mitch McConnell Threatens to Kill Unemployment Benefits for 2 Million Unless He Gets Spending Cuts

Post by DesperateInRI on Thu Dec 27, 2012 4:33 pm

Sen. Mitch McConnell has returned from Christmas, and is threatening to kill unemployment insurance for 2 million Americans unless he gets spending cuts.

McConnell’s demand has little to do with the deficit, and everything to do with ideology. Republicans view unemployment benefits as the cause of unemployment. People like McConnell believe that unemployment insurance takes away the incentive to work by making the unemployed lazy and dependent on government. (These people have obviously never tried to subsist on an unemployment check.)

Republicans believe that the unemployed would all run out and get jobs tomorrow if their earned benefit was taken away. It doesn’t matter to them that there beloved job creators long ago decided to increase their profits by not hiring, which means that there are more people looking for work than there are jobs available.



Sen. McConnell is trying to leverage the president’s concern for the unemployed into cuts for programs like food stamps, Medicare, and Medicaid.

I have to believe there is a special room in Hell for the likes of Boehner, Ryan, and McConnell. I hope Satan's keeping it hot for them.

You forgot one of the worst! Eric Cantor! Wouldn't be surprised to see him as Speaker of the House for the next session of Congress. Very, very SCARY!

Oh, God, my eyes!

Yeah, I did forget Cantor. He needs to be dumped into the middle of Joplin, Missouri so he can explain to those folks how everything MUST be paid for. Bet he'd scream like a baby and he wouldn't last ten minutes.

Cantor has been undermining Boehner for the last three or four years. He's probably jumping up and down for joy because Orange Glow's fiscal cliff Plan B crashed and burned. Yeah, I could definitely see that lousy pissant as Speaker of the House. I used to joke that Charlie Sheen could be Speaker, and at one time the Tea Party suggested Sheen run for the job too. They may have been joking, but ol' Charlie's looking pretty damn good right now.
