President Obama, Fight To Extend Unemployment Benefits

President Obama, Fight To Extend Unemployment Benefits

          President Obama left town 5 months ago for the tropical climate of Hawaii during the Christmas holiday season while promising to fix the cutoff of long term unemployment benefits, leaving the unemployed with a sudden loss of benefits while having to face the coldest winter (along with their heating bills) in a generation.

          In 5 months time the Senate has passed a bill to enable unemployment benefits to continue thanks to Senate leader Harry Reid. Outside of one photo op and one speech on getting employers to hire the long term unemployed, where has President Obama been on this issue? Answer: President Obama is Missing In Inaction.

          Perhaps he is running out the clock waiting for the end of his presidency. Perhaps his inaction is due to the fact that there are not anymore elections to win, so no more need for your vote.

          Regardless of whether this point of view regarding President Obama is cynical or realistic, that does not change the fact that you need to contact President Obama and House leader John Boehner to let them know you are paying attention to their actions or inaction and that you will vote accordingly this November.
