Alison Lundergan Grimes Accuses Mitch McConnell Of Laughing 'In The Faces' Of The UnemployedThe Huffington Post | By Samantha Lachman Posted: 01/14/2014 5:28 pm EST | Updated: 01/14/2014 11:35 pm EST
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) chuckled at the end of a radio interview recently when a host told him he hoped the lawmaker would vote "no" on extending federal unemployment benefits. Now, McConnell's Democratic challenger, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, has gone on the attack.
In a Jan. 8 interview with conservative talk radio host Lars Larson, McConnell said Republicans would extend federal benefits for the long-term unemployed if the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate is delayed for one year.
"I hope you vote no on extending unemployment benefits," said Larson at the end of the interview, to which McConnell laughed in response.
Larson followed-up, "at least for the long-term unemployed, I appreciate it."
"Yeah, thanks Lars," McConnell said.
Listen to a clip of the interview below. The exchange is in the last 30 seconds:
The Grimes campaign slammed McConnell in response to the interview:
The campaign also unveiled a graphic featuring a picture of McConnell over a shot of the Capitol that says, “Mitch McConnell’s answer on how he will vote on extending unemployment benefits? 'Ha ha ha ha.'"
Long-term unemployment benefits expired on Dec. 28 for 1.3 million Americans. President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats want an extension of the program, which kicks in when state benefits expire.
Proposals to reauthorize the benefits failed in the Senate on Tuesday. And even if the Senate approved legislation to extend the benefits, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives would still have to also vote on the bill before it could go to Obama to be signed into law.
In an editorial for Politico, McConnell wrote that the debate over extending unemployment insurance is representative of broader problems with the Senate:
Matt Bevin, a tea party-backed businessman, is challenging McConnell in an increasingly contentious Republican primary.
HuffPost Pollster, which combines all publicly available polling data, shows McConnell leading Grimes, 42 percent to 38 percent.
CORRECTION: The article originally reported the expiration of long-term unemployment benefits for 1.3 Americans. Jobless benefits expired for 1.3 million Americans.
Do any analyst need to analyze the headline of the article and the contents of the article and the smile of this devil ZIONIST of US congress that has been sitting with his entire family of Kick oust Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Fucked dynasty of Israeli ZIONISTS and some of them in US to eat the meat row of middle class and poor Americans .
It is unimaginable to even think how could any sane person to even think of on such an event of harming people of the country and nation that reared him and all the bastards year after year to kill American middle class and poor and smile on such news. What is the hidden intent of these ZOINISTS ? Is it not to kill all middle class and empty the country of middle class and poor and occupy America and declare America as Jewish land from "WE JEWS CONTROL AMERICA".
This is enough for the rest of the nation to understand what to do to oust such like these filthy stinking ZIONISTS from US politics before they can harm us and the country..
