Video: Are You Unemployed? Who Refuses to Help America's Jobless
They helped the Banks, gave billions to Wall Street and the Auto Industry. Sent a few more billions to Iraq, and more to Afghanistan, but now refuse benefits to the jobless voters who put them into office. We are talking Congress... and these guys in particular:
Tom Coburn (R) voted for the government’s $700 billion bailout of the financial industry. But now refuses to help the Jobless, while still getting his six figure tax-payers paid salary in Washington, plus all benefits. Here's his office number (202) 224-5754 His Salary $174,000/year [ more ]
Lamar Alexander (R) supported the $700 billion bank bailout in fall 2008, saying, “This is a very serious, very unpleasant problem to deal with. … But we must act next week to solve this situation. His office in DC (202) 224-4944 His Salary $174,000/year [ more ]
Jim Bunning (R) Despite seats on the Senate’s Budget, Finance, and Banking committees; where was he when this whole thing came down ?! Ok, so he voted against all Bail outs. Good, but not honoring the Jobless benefits? His office (202) 224-4343 His Salary $174,000/year [ more ]
So what are you going to do America?
