The Unemployment Extension 2010 Bill will be up for another vote the week of July 19th, Tuesday the 20th looks like the day it will happen. One Senate hopeful has made it very clear that she is against the extension because the unemployed are nothing but “lazy”, according to Politics and World News. Here is just one more politician out of touch with the American people.
Sharron Angle, who is running against Harry Reid for the Senate, has voiced her opinion loud and clear. She believes that the unemployed are lazy and she is against the Unemployment Extension 2010 Bill being passed. This is not a very smart move by a politician, calling the unemployed lazy, especially when she hails from the state with the highest rate of unemployed at 14%. According to the May figures, Nevada unemployment is the highest in the country at 14% and this is where Angle is campaigning to get into the Senate. Calling 14% of her state -” LAZY” is not going to help her get that seat.
Luckily, that state’s citizens can send this woman a message by not voting for her in the November election. It is sad for the unemployed that they have to put up with their financial crisis of having their benefits of unemployment stopped and be labeled “lazy” by a woman who wants their trust in Washington. If Angle is spouting the L word around Nevada, what will she do and say if she were ever voted in and sent to Washington?
Angle’s take on the unemployed brings up an important point. It is crucial that you know who you are putting into the Senate with your vote in November. Although most of us are aware that the Unemployment Extension 2010 has been turned down numerous times in the Senate, many of us do not know how each Senator voted.
The Unemployment Extension is critical for the unemployed of today, but it is also of importance to the people who are still employed. The country is not doing well financially, just take a walk through your local supermarket and check out the prices of basic food items. Then pay attention to the different banks, utility companies, credit card companies and numerous other businesses that have out sourced jobs over seas. Many of the “customer service phone calls you make today are answered by someone half way around the world. These are the jobs Americans use to hold. The unemployed can be any one of us tomorrow.
In November you once again have a say in who will be leading the country through the Senate. It is important to know what the Senators from your state think about the Unemployment Extension 2010 Bill and how they voted when it came up a number of times in the Senate.
The unemployed are anything but lazy, they are hard working Americans that through no fault of their own are out of work. Sharon Angle is way off base calling the unemployed, “lazy”. It has been a hard and long struggle for these individuals and families waiting for the Unemployment Extension 2010 to pass, now a Senate hopeful wants to add insult to injury by calling the out of work “lazy”. Not a good move politically on her part.
