    Do you really want to see "hostage taking"?

    Unemployment benefits: not until Bush tax cuts pass, Senate GOP says - CSMonitor.com

    The lame-duck Congress, mired in a partisan clash over taxes and spending and preoccupied with a battle over extending the Bush tax cuts, refused Wednesday to restore federal financing of extended unemployment benefits, which had lapsed overnight.

    The inaction means the imminent loss of unemployment compensation for some 800,000 out-of-work Americans, with nearly 2 million long-term unemployed expected to be affected by Jan. 1, according to the Labor Department.

    ---------------------------------------------

    See? Obama extended the Bush tax cuts because millions of Americas were being held hostage. Now this isn't coming from some far left rag, but from the Christian Science Monitor. And, it was only a couple of years ago.

    The Government paying people to not work is not an industry.

    I'm sure that given the precedent set in Egypt, we'll see plenty more hostage taking. ( and yes, flat out ignoring your inane efforts to drag the topic back to Bush )

    How is that inane? We started all this violence in the Middle East with Iraq. If those regimes were supposed to fall, it would be their people that take them out. Not us. We didn't ask them to fight in our revolution.

    It's not about Bush anyway. It's about the Republicans. It was the Republicans that held millions of Americans hostage. Read the article. It comes from a right wing site. Just one that's honest.

    Let me get this straight, you are comparing a government locking people up to politicians talking about benefits?

    Yep, Bush made Iran take hostages during the Carter administration because of the upcoming invasion if Iraq.

    You're a fucking moron.

    We were involved in Iran before we were involved in Iraq, was that Bush's fault?

    From your own link:

    To sum it up; the agencies that the people worked for paid the money and Republican Sen John McCain supports the decision. In other words, you're a hack.
