And here is the proof. House Speaker John Boehner once again said “no” to providing insurance benefits to the unemployed: people who became unemployed because of Repub policies, mind you. So no, they do not give a single sheep raisin for you or I.

As it says in the above-linked article,

Two weeks ago, a bipartisan group of senators announced a deal on legislation that would extend benefits through the end of May. Under the bill, people who’ve missed benefits would receive retroactive payments. Given the additional 70,000 who have been dropped from long-term unemployment benefits each week since they expired in December, that number has reached roughly 2 million.

But House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) suggested Wednesday the House wouldn’t consider the Senate bill to extend federal long-term unemployment insurance unless the Senate works to pass jobs proposals offered by Republicans.

Got it? The House Repubs won’t do anything for the majority of Americans unless they can throw more of our tax dollars to their ├╝ber-rich buddies. So, says the House majority, AMFYOYO to all of the working Americans that the GOP dejobbed via their idiotic economic policies.

As the woman who was quoted in the linked article asked about Boehner and his cronies, “Don’t they care about the irreversible damage they are doing to millions?” The answer, dear lady, is clear:

No. They don’t care. They didn’t before, they don’t now, and they won’t tomorrow. No matter if you starve, live in a box, die, they do not care.

Yes, that hypocritical parasite is lapping up luxury in Switzerland at our expense. This after telling unemployed Americans that there was no money for them.

It is time for America’s hard-working citizens to realize this truth: we send billions upon billions to these lying leeches in our taxes, and they blow our money on luxury trips, private barbers, and shovel millions of dollars to their billionaire buddies. And then they tell us that the country is broke. Bull-f***ing-s***. We aren’t broke at all. There is a lot of money there.

But the money is wasted and stolen by the “trickle-down” crowd in Congress. A perfect example: Cantor’s luxurious trip to Davos will cost more in a day than an unemployed person will get in six months.

Repeat: Eric Cantor’s luxurious trip to Davos will cost more in one single day than a REAL hard-working American’s unemployment benefits would cost for half a year.

Sick of Teapublicans yet? Then for crying out loud, stop f***ing voting for them.
