Web Ads Against House Republicans: Don’t Drop the Ball on the Unemployed

After a bipartisan Senate vote on Monday, House Republicans are the barrier to more than 2 million hardworking Americans restarting their unemployment benefits while they look for work. Middle class families are being squeezed and left out in the cold by Republicans in Congress – and whatever Republicans says about helping people who are trying to find a good job, his actions tell a different story.

In fact, even Republican Senator Mark Kirk voted for the measure in the Senate, putting the obstruction of House Republicans well outside the mainstream of even the Republican party.

“More than 2 million Americans are looking for work, but they lost their unemployment benefits because Washington is too dysfunctional and focused on giving tax breaks to the wealthiest and special interests,” said Josh Schwerin of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “The fact that the dysfunctional Republican Congress is spending more time boosting the rich at the expense of people looking for work speaks volumes to his wrong priorities.”
