For me, it will be 2 years this week in the ranks of the unemployed. Because I lack a college degree, I am not even in the running to work as a sales clerk for Michael’s. Seriously.
Hear these voices when you feel angry about the President’s deal with Republicans over the tax cut extensions. In my opinion, they should all have been allowed to expire. Instead they will be extended for two more years, because Republicans held unemployment insurance extenders hostage. But would you want to be the one denying these people unemployment benefits during the holidays? I wouldn’t.
He hears these voices and says they shouldn’t be the victims of politicking. I think this will bite Democrats in the butt in 2012, but it will be what it is.
