Heartless Republicans Cut Unemployment Benefits on 1.3 Million People
On January 14th, 2014 the Senate led by Democrat Harry Reid voted to extend Unemployment benefits to the 1.3 million people who lost their benefits in December 2013. Republicans filibustered to prevent those people from getting benefits. This filibuster made a super majority of 60 votes necessary to pass the bill.
Here’s a list of Senators who voted against extending benefits and as you can see, they are almost exclusively Republicans. Goes to show how Republicans don’t care about regular people.
