Race Baiting Al Sharpton: Republicans Have A “Heartless Ideology” For Not Extending Unemployment Benefits

Al Sharpton heartless Republicans don't care about unemployed


Why is it that the left thinks the answer to everything is to just throw more money at it? Whether it's food, housing, bigger government, unemployment, whatever, the answer to liberal progressives is always the same thing, more of YOUR money. Then you add in the racist hate of Al Sharpton and MSNBC and you have a comical mix of the blind ideology that is destroying America.

According to Sharpton, Republicans have a "heartless ideology" and they, "don't care at all" about the unemployed because they have not extended benefits past the regular 26 weeks that everyone gets who loses their job through no fault of their own. Well, I'd just have to ask the ever divisive Rev Sharpton if he "cares at all" about the fate of our nation. Where does the progressive liberal like Sharpton think the money to pay for unemployment benefits come from and just how long would you like to extend benefits for?

Why don't we just extend those benefits forever, that way the unemployed would always have money to spend, wouldn't they? Why don't we just give housewives a $1,000 a week government benefit since they don't have jobs outside the home? Why don't we give every homeless person in America unemployment benefits, would that stimulate the economy according to brain dead liberals like Sharpton and Nancy Pelosi? Does it ever stop? Do we ever run out of money? Will liberals ever be satisfied even though no progress has ever been shown despite the trillions and trillions of dollars spent on social welfare programs since President Johnson's Great Society?

If just giving money away is the answer, why don't we give everyone in the United State $1,000 a week to spend as they please?

Oh yea, that money has to come from somewhere...didn't think about that, did ya?

Read the pertinent part of the transcript from Sharpton's Politics Nation this past Friday below:

AL SHARPTON: Tonight's lead, the axe is about to fall, and Republicans don't care at all. In just six hours, over one million Americans will lose long-term unemployment benefits. Why? Because House Republicans went on holiday break without fixing this. Despite the economic recovery, long-term unemployment is at its highest level since World War II. Every day we're hearing more stories from ordinary Americans bracing for the pain coming at midnight tonight.

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: What if we no longer have a place to keep the baby, you know? What if we, you know, no longer are able to offer her a safe place to live?

ROGELIA CORTEZ, UNEMPLOYED: And then there's my kids. I got three at home. I have to feed them. I have to keep my rent.

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: I am at 20 bucks in my wallet. I am at homeless. I get you have to cut your bottom line, but if you're cutting the bottom line and starving people doing it, how does that make sense?

SHARPTON: It doesn't make sense. These are just a few stories of the 1.3 million losing benefits tonight. This is about people, not politics. In fact, in 2008 President George W. Bush signed long-term benefits extension into law.

This shouldn't be a partisan issue, but Speaker Boehner's Republican House turned it into one. It's a heartless ideology that says if you're out of work, you're out of luck.

Today President Obama again demanded Congress act promptly on this in the new year. And he placed calls to two Senate co-sponsors of a proposal to extend jobless benefits for three months, voicing his support for the measure. The fight is on in the richest country in the world. There's no excuse for this. I hope Republicans think long and hard about these Americans tonight and come back to Washington ready to act.
