    The first thing Democrats tackled in the lame duck session was an extension of unemployment insurance for American taxpayers who lost their jobs because the elite and bankers turned Wall Street into a Las Vegas gambling casino, went on a gambling binge with taxpayer's money, collected huge personal gains for themselves, then sacrificed taxpayer's personal earnings to cover their personal irresponsibility.

    Republicans want no part of this extension of unemployment insurance for American taxpayers who lost their jobs. Their noble cause; a phony PR earmark campaign to curb 1% of the budget. But their real agenda is an extension of Bush's tax cuts for the same elite and bankers. A big fat reward for destroying our economy and for stealing the nest egg of millions of hard working taxpayers.

    In 1961, Democratic President John F. Kennedy asked Americans to willingly make sacrifices for our country and our people.

    Republicans have finally answered that call. They're more than willing to offer up a huge sacrifice; they offer up all those American taxpayers who lost their jobs, some who will no longer be able to provide a roof over the head of their family or put food on the table for their children.

    We certainly can't ask the elite and bankers who sacrificed taxpayer's personal earnings to cover their personal irresponsibility to sacrifice being able to buy an $83,000 Mercedes Benz E-Class car, not just once, but every single year for the next decade.

    We have all made mistakes. But Dante tells us that divine justice weighs the sins of the cold-blooded and the sins of the warm-hearted on different scales. Better the occasional faults of a party living in the spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a party frozen in the ice of its own indifference.
    President John F. Kennedy

    Paying people to be unemployed for two years is more than enough.

    If you disagree, I'm sorry but maybe you should just start working.

    Simply because the two parties have differing philosophies, does not mean that one cares and the other does not.

    In the case of unemployment, Liberals/Dems think that they are helping the unemployed by keeping them unemployed and sending them small checks twice a month. Conservatives/Republicans think that they help more by showing tough love and making the unemployed get off their asses and get back to work.

    That being said, I don't really think any of the politicians really give a rat's ass about the rest of us, all they care about is convincing enough of us to vote for their side and the power they achieve when we do.

    'someone else' Jethro? Is there that much of a disconnect in your little mind, or is it just all your fawning over the elite? It's OK for the Wall Street bankers to sacrifice SOMEONE ELSE'S money and collect huge personal gains for themselves, then sacrifice taxpayer's personal earnings to cover their personal irresponsibility?

    No. That's why they go to jail.

    Course you still defend people like Soros anyway.

    Immie, what is the root word in unemployed? It means they HAD a job. The fact that they don't is not because they are lazy or anything they did. Currently there is ONE job for every five people unemployed. What do we do for the FOUR?

    What Wall Street bankers who destroyed our economy went to jail? Name one that was even charged? Name one that didn't have a huge windfall gain at our expense?
