Congress Chooses not to Protect 1.3 Million Americans

Sunday, December 15, 2013

The President of the United States, Barack Obama, supported a bill that would guarantee that there will be no government shutdown for the next two years. In a calculated effort on the recent bi-partisan budget bill that just passed, it seems that some Democrats, including the President, forgot about 1.3 million Americans that are now going to loose their unemployment insurance. This vote, supported by the Democrats and Republicans, plays right into the hands of the Republicans. They are now off of their political hook. Regardless of what was accomplished, what wasn't accomplished was the protection of 1.3 million Americans that will now loose their unemployment compensation right after Christmas. Why? Because there wasn't any resolution included in the present bill that was passed to protect the unemployed.
Does anyone seem to care? The front line GOP, the so called hard line conservatives, to include John Boehner, Paul Ryan and others voted positivly on a bill to replace the sequester. Does this mean that future bills will now be passed with a simple majority? There has to be a catch. Ted Cruz, along with 62 Republicans voted against the Ryan/Murray bill. It seems that the Democrats have taken the easy way out, or did they? Running down to the wire just before the holiday recess, the Democrats passed the bill that gives the Republicans ammunition to now say that they have done what their constituents wanted. Every Senator that voted for the bill seems to be thinking about themselves here. Another senator Rand Paul, who openly stated that the unemployed do not need another extension, seems perfectly happy to now go on his long Christmas/New Year holiday vacation, while others who have no job, and not enough money to put food on the table, must suffer through the holidays with no income. Rand Paul's excuse is that the unemployed do not need another extention on-top of the one that they already have.
What Rand Paul fails to realize is that most of the 1.3 million people without work legitamately cannot find a job. The facts are that out of every available job out there, three people looking for work apply for that one available job. So the people outnumber the available jobs by at least 3 to 1. It is mathmatically impossible for everyone without work to be able to find work. The other issue is the lack of training people must acquire to qualify for the new position.
Rand Paul, a senator who has aspirations to become President some day, is falling way short in his ability to support the middle and lower class people who need basic funds just to survive.
Rand Paul will again have a plate of turkey for Christmas, and so will John Boehner and Ted Cruz. Mr. Cruz was against the bill, but for the wrong reasons, as his were stricktly selfish and he consistantly deposes anything that has any support for Obama's health care bill. Mr. Cruz is another man that is playing with aspirations to run for President in 2016, but if Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are the best that the Conservative party can come up with, then maybe the Republicans should turn the nomination over to Chris Christie. But with Chris Christie's reputation, he definitely is not the best candidate either. Mike Huckabee is tossing the idea to run for the White House at the moment, and is weighing his options. One of his options was to end his talk show, which is an indication that Huckabee may be seriously considering a run for the White House. I'm sure there will be others who will run for the White house.

I'm sure there will be others who will run for the Whitehouse to become the 45th President of the United States, but with all things considered, it will take some coming together by the Republicans to get a viable nominee for President in the White House. If Hilary Clinton runs, she will be far ahead of everyone from both parties to actually be elected as next President.
If Clinton becomes President, what will the Republicans, or Conservatives or the tea party do now in their efforts to continuously obstruct the President?! The Republicans should recognize that they already dropped the ball again for the next major election in 2016, and they should consider getting a well qualified person ready for the 2020 elections.  Even with these facts, Mike Huckabee is tossing the idea to run for president, as he has ended his talk shows on TV and radio. This is a good indication that he has something up his sleeve.  If Hilary Clinton runs, she will be far ahead of everyone from both parties to actually be elected as next President.

For me, it is a sad day to see the Democratic President of the United States, namely Barack Obama be used by a select few of Republcans, just so some issues can be resolved just before the holidays, at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
