Congress Begins To Embrace Unemployment Benefits Extension Part 2

Congress Begins To Embrace Unemployment Benefits Extension Part 2

Congress Begins To Embrace Unemployment Benefits Extension Part 2

      December 5, 2013 – Nancy Pelosi states that “we can not support a budget agreement without unemployment insurance, it would undermine us as a country”. “This is so unconscionable, it’s practically at the level of immoral to do to people who work hard, play by the rules, lose their job through no fault of their own are not able to continue getting unemployment insurance checks.”

       December 12, 2013 – Nancy Pelosi advised her colleagues to “embrace the suck” and vote for the budget bill without any unemployment insurance. Nancy Pelosi advised her colleagues to support a budget bill without any long term unemployment insurance extension even though she previously said the bill would undermine us as a country. Her exact advice was to “embrace the suck”. Her colleague, John Yarmuth, representative from Kentucky’s 3rd District, followed her advise and voted for the budget bill.

       In 2014 Nancy Pelosi has also voted for the bill that raised the debt ceiling as well as another budget bill. Neither one of these bills had any provision to extend unemployment insurance. According to Nancy Pelosi’s own definition, Nancy Pelosi and every other member of Congress who votes for these bills that do not include unemployment insurance are immoral.

       The Senate has now passed Unemployment Benefits Extension and now it is up to the House of Representatives to do the same. It is up to us to remind President Obama, John Boehner (House Majority Leader) and Nancy Pelosi (House Minority Leader) of their responsibilities to keep their promises to help the unemployed.
