Bunning Kills UI Extension for an Eleventh Time

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) just took to the chamber floor asking for unanimous consent to pass a temporary extension of unemployment insurance, COBRA benefits and a handful of additional funding provisions that expired yesterday.

You already know the outcome.

Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) continued his one-man blockade of the legislation, insisting that Democratic leaders come up with the $10 billion the proposal is estimated to cost.

“The debt that we have arrived at,” Bunning said, “it’s unsustainable.”

It marks the eleventh time since in less than a week that Bunning has blocked the bill.

It seems the needs of the “One” or the “Few” Out weight the needs of the “The 10 Million Plus” which are Unemployed. Adding insult to injury, Congress has adjourned for two week, “Easter” holiday, funny not many are going to have much of an Easer this year, thank you Senator. I don't know I keep hearing, to hell with the little people, let them eat cake, that is if they had money to buy cake, yuk, yuk, yuk!
