With the economy struggling from high gas prices, craven democrats can be counted on to seize the opportunity to seduce as many Americans as they can onto the welfare and unemployment handout roles.....
WASHINGTON - The House on Thursday approved an extra three months of jobless benefits for all unemployed Americans, knowing the plan's chances are slight in the Senate and almost nonexistent at the White House.
After failing to get a veto-proof two-thirds margin by three votes on Wednesday, Democrats got an exact two-thirds margin on Thursday with a 274-137 vote — the amount needed to overcome a threatened presidential veto.
Democrats said they pushed the legislation through to the Senate because Americans need help in a slumping economy.
"The American people are waiting to see if Congress is going to help them," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
No Nancy, only idle reprobates, or as we conservatives like to call them--core democrat voters, are waiting for Congress to help them. The rest of America gets out and finds work when things take a downturn. It doesn't matter that House democrats know the bill will fail, the target audience will get the message that in order to receive fabulous cash and prizes from democrats for not working, they have to vote democrat.
Here are a couple of democrat core voters....unemployed, shiftless, and waiting for Congress to help them.
