Humanitarian assistance

Don't have much hope for this one passing, but at least it will bring the slow motion disaster that is our long term unemployed back into the news. First bill Harry Reid will bring to the floor in the new session will be a three month extension of unemployment benefits which expired on Saturday after the Boehner's Heartless House of Dysfunction skulked out town for their holiday joy without addressing the crisis.
The Senate is expected to take up a bill sponsored by Sens. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) and Dean Heller (R-Nev.), which would temporarily extend the benefits without offsetting the cost.

“I hope we can get that done,” Reid said.
This on top of the cuts to food assistance for the poor, which are about to be cut again if the Crackpot Caucus succeeds in their latest round of policy by extortion. There are millions of Americans who will be starting out the new year, scared, hungry and cold because our coddled, self-absorbed, overpaid political class are more concerned about their own cushy sinecures than representing the interests of the commonwealth.

Charlie is right. These people must be stopped before it's too late. It will only happen if we fight together to take back our government.
