Fund Raising

19 Nov

154 Republicans voted against extending jobless benefits for those out of work more than 6 months. Those benefits start expiring Dec 1, right in the heart of the holiday season.  When our economy is looking for a nice big boost of retail spending, over two million families will be trying to figure out how to live on $1200/month less. Can’t extend those benefits unless we can pay for them.

But heaven forbid we let tax cuts for families making over $250k/year ($20,800/month) expire. If I were trying to raise money, I know which neighborhood I’d be knocking on doors in.
