I was watching my usual schedule of enlightening shows on MSNBC when this tweet was displayed from Senator Harry Reid:
Senator Harry Reid @SenatorReid17h
Republicans are holding UI extension hostage to an unreasonable demand that we withdraw all pending votes on nominations first.
It not only made me angry that Republicans would stoop this low to try and deny the Black Man in the White House the ability to govern but that they would use American citizens as cannon fodder for their hate and jealousy. People who have been jobless for extended periods due to capitalist greed policies of outsourcing, mismanagement, age discrimination, and etc. must suffer because of the pettiness of the Republican Party.
How does a GOPer look at himself/herself in the mirror knowing that he is denying jobless benefits to Americans who cannot find a decent paying job to support himself and his/her family? What type of human being supports legislation that denies food stamps to children and seniors? What logic or morality encourages treating gays, minorities, and women as second-class citizens?
The above tweet was then followed by this one from Senator Reid:
Congress is finishing this year less popular than a cockroach, and mindless, knee-jerk obstruction from Republicans is exactly why.
Comments to think about.
