Kline Allows Americans To Face Disaster

Congressman John Kline voted against extending emergency unemployment benefits. As a result, 1.2 million people will lose their jobless benefits by the end of the month, joining millions of “99ers” who have already seen their benefits run out.

It wasn't really a surprise as about the only thing Rep. Kline votes to fund is the war(s) now over 600 Billion a year, and giving tax breaks to the wealthy. Unfortunately, with 14 million Americans out of work, Kline siding with other Republicans to make a bad situation worse isn't in the best interest of this country. In fact the only thing it furthers is his ideology which is not going to put Americans back to work or feed it's children or stop the worsting depression.

As Senator Durbin stated:
“There used to be bipartisan sentiment that when America faced a disaster, we would pull together… we have a national emergency with this recession and 14 million Americans out of work,”
John Kline and the House needs to provide us with living-wage jobs, here in our local community instead of funding wall street business and war profiteers. I'm outraged that John Kline is willing to take down the people of this country over his own party politics. You know John, there are republicans are out of work too!

For the millions unemployed, unemployment benefits have provided a way to keep a roof over head and food on the table in one of the worst job markets since the Great Depression. In essences, Rep. Kline has voted to continue the Depression.
