28 Dangerous Extremists Who Hate Americans Spotted On Capitol Hill Friday


Anyone see John Shadegg? Where's Michele Bachmann hiding?

142 Republicans joined every single Democrat on Friday to pass HR 6867, the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2008. Even far right lunatic fringe Republicans like Steve Pearce (R-NM), Virgil Goode (R-VA), David Dreier (D-CA), Mean Jean Schmidt (R-OH), and Adam Putnam (R-FL) didn't have the guts to vote against this and reversed themselves on a bill that extends unemployment compensation for an increasing number of working families in dire straits. And, as this morning's NY Times points out more and more economically distressed members of the middle class are starting to understand who the enemy really is.
Here in a swing state of severe economic hurt — a leader in foreclosures where empty offices now litter strip malls — there are signs that Mr. Obama is gaining ground. In interviews and surveys, voters across Florida said the debate in Washington over how to fix the credit crisis had fueled frustration with the Bush administration and pushed them away from the Republican ticket.

The four most recent polls from late September put Mr. Obama ahead of Mr. McCain by three to eight percentage points, a sharp swing from the previous six weeks, when Mr. McCain led by as much as 10 points.

So who would oppose a bill to extend unemployment benefits? 28 far right Republican extremists, the worst of the worst-- and on a day when the newpapers announced gigantic layoffs, overwhelmingly caused by GOP trade and financial policies! Most of the 28 maniacs who voted NO are in safe districts where their constituents are as filled with hatred, fear and ignorance as they are and it is hopeeless to even try to oppose them. But not all. A few are in genuinely moderate districts and can be defeated in November, particularly:

Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
John Culberson (R-TX)
Bill Sali (R-ID)
John Shadegg (R-AZ)

Shadegg's vote was particularly callous since he had just voted 90 minutes earlier for the $700,000,000,000 Wall Street bailout. His campaign contributors will be well-taken care of. Regular American families thrown out of work through no fault of their own just got the middle finger (once again) from John Shadegg. He has a great opponent this year too-- Bob Lord. If you'd like to give Bob a hand, he's on the DWT ActBlue page.

In canada unemployment insurance is a joke.In the old days it ran for a year. Now,6months and you can't live off it. Here is the real bad part--if you quit or get fired---you get zero.even if you paid into it for the past 40 FKN years.
The real sad part is that folks can't wake-up--there is more trouble ahead and most Americans dn't know that both parties are the same. But Israel gets all the doe they need--no matter how bad it's in America. More like folks are stupied cluts
United Tits for Israel--only :^)

Amazing. Most Republinazi traitors don't have any qualms against committing treason against us and supporting Christian terrorism around the world, yet most of these traitor scumbags voted in favor of the measure, leaving only 28 of the world's worse Christian fascists and terrorist simpathizers voting against us, as usual. Amazing.
