War on the Little People
When you’ve lost you job because of the Banks, Wall Street, Obama economy fix and you can’t collect any unemployment benefits and end up homeless and hungry look to your friends, relatives and neighbors that are Republican.
Senate Republicans have blocked another effort to extend unemployment benefits to millions of jobless workers.

More than 1.2 million people have already had their checks cut off, but that total is expected soon to rise to two million people.
