I'm Outraged, I Tell You!

In keeping with the post below (and many of my posts) New Mexico's congressfolk are outraged that congress would cut off benefits for the long term unemployed. These same congressfolk said nothing while their party was throwing the longterm unemployed under the bus as they negotiated an austerity budget deal, which they then voted for, that Republicans are now bragging about.

Lujan, Grisham, and every Democrat in Washington knew, when they removed unemployment benefits from the overall budget deal, that Republicans would never allow a separate bill to extend unemployment benefits. The Democratic Party was saying to the unemployed, Go eff yourself.
