These first few weeks in July 2010 some 2.5 million Americans will not receive unemployment checks because U. S. Senators from across the Land could not take their wealthy salaries, perks, and insurance and donate them all to the pool of money needed to protect families across America from weeks with no income.
TWO AND A HALF MILLION AMERICANS GOING UNPAID
Many of these same Senators pointed fingers at one another and said the-other-guy-was-the-one who refused to cut the federal budget elsewhere; therefore, 2.5 million of Americans could not and would not receive help. (Few Senators seem to care about the probable major double-dip-recession TO BE created by Washington and state governments who are CURRENTLY not willing to spend the country out of this Banking, Financier, and DOD debt and recession. )
Think about it. In a way, the U.S. Senators are laying off 2.5 million already unemployed Americans--i.e. without pay--once again.
