Braverot,

"Again",

you profess to be cognitively erudite,

clearly you need to bone up, if you’re able,

on basic economics “99”.

Here’s a hint, “again”.

. . . while the rich, businesses and corporations

sit on nearly

TWO TRILLION DOLLARS IN CASH,

Their ASS.ets

have never held more wealth at any other time in history,

and yet they do nothing to invest in the country

where they live and profess allegiance, but only at athletic events,

but not economic allegiance to any country

other than their own bank accounts . .

The majority of these people happen to be rich,

The majority of these people are Republican by choice,

because they have the money to buy the politicians and thus buy and game the system and the

rest of us.

SEE, that was EASY

HIT THE BIG RED BUTTON

How exactly does extending unemployment benefits (again) get people back to work? The best thing the government (state or federal) can do for job creation is get out of the way and let businesses create the jobs.

Nearly 16 months into the 113th Congress,

HOUSE REPUBLICANS

have next to nothing to show for

their time in the majority, or

for their paychecks.

They have failed to address

a broken immigration system,

neglected to pass a single bill to create jobs, and

refused to consider minimum wage proposals, or

extend emergency unemployment safety net in the form of emergency

unemployment insurance - leaving

over 2.6 million Americans out of work and no safety net

with thousands joining their ranks each day.

Nearly a month ago,

the Senate acted in a bipartisan way and voted to extend unemployment insurance, yet House Republicans refuse to act.

Democrats have offered Speaker Boener multiple opportunities to do the right thing and have put forward a petition and to demand a vote on this measure immediately.

But REPUBLICANS still say 'no'.

There is no excuse for inaction

our economy IS losing jobs.

Consumers and businesses will suffer.

It’s long past time to renew unemployment insurance and get millions of hardworking Americans back to work, while the rich, businesses and corporations

sit on nearly

TWO TRILLION DOLLARS IN CASH.
