How ironic is this scenario? The Democrats are up in arms because Senator Jim Bunning (R-Ky) filibuster a bill that would extend unemployment and health benefits, and also, the highway program. I just don’t understand why the Democrats need 100 votes in the Senate to agree on the extension, but would settle a reconciliation of the healthcare bill of 51 votes.
I would contend such actions may be cruel to allow the current bill to expire so that thousand of federal highway workers are unemployed with jobless benefits. But as a conservative, nothing was mentioned how this measure will be paid for. Enough is enough and excessive government spending needs to come to halt. We are spending money that we don’t have. What would happen if we all had a printing press to make money? Exactly! What ever happened to transparency? What ever happen to personal responsibility?
If the Democrats what the damn bill so bad, they should put it up for a vote on the Senate floor. Why are they so afraid? They got the votes and more with some Republicans siding with them.
Can someone explain that to me?
