Harry Reid and Nancy should refuse to recess for the 4th of July holiday until the unemployment
extension is passed. How can they just let everyone go home for their "holiday" when people are being cut off with no money and no work? It's time they got really tough with these Repuke aholes!!

1. Not gonna happen
Public appearances and scheduled fundraisers are their priority 4 months before an election.

2. I agree, the bill is ready, just set the vote for tomorrow.
If Snowe votes no again, shove a fountain up her ass, light fuse and get away.

3. Their priority is on getting money for the war right now. They're trying to ram it through
as an unexpected emergency. The unemployed can suck air for all they care.

4. At Least They Should Call It Up For A Vote Before The Recess One More Time......
let the Repugs filibuster it again and then let the Repugs have it when the Dems make their public appearances and walk in parades during this recess. Don't let up on letting the electorate know that it was the Repugs that are holding this unemployment monies up. I'm sure that there are many Repugs and Independents and probably a few teabaggers on unemployment that will be hurt by this - that might just not vote for the Repugs in November.

6. Yes!
And please, make those a**hole repubs really have to filibuster. Call their bluff. Let the CSPAN cameras roll on folks who want to filibuster a bill to aid Americans in need. Make 'em do it!
