The TV segment that every member of Congress should be forced to watch

You know what doesn't do much to reduce unemployment? Tax cuts, especially for the rich.

The TV segment that every member of Congress should be forced to watch

You know what doesn't do much to reduce unemployment? Tax cuts, especially for the rich.

You what does reduce unemployment? Unemployment benefits.

It's not just "experts" saying that (althugh most experts would in fact say that) but the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.

So ask your local member of Congress why he or she is about to throw $700 billion at gazillionaires for something that doesn't reduce joblessness, while not voting to extend jobless benefits and thus telling America's struggling middle class to "eat cake"? meanwhile, people at unemployment offices are starting to get angry and potentially violent. Surprised?
