Texas’ national treasure, Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D), rose up in the House today to speak up for extending unemployment benefits.

“So we can’t be only about ourself [sic] in this holiday season, particularly as we recognize that the Pope being made Man of the Year has spoken to the world eloquently about this whole issue of the vulnerable,” Lee said. “So I ask this, Mr. Woodall, in the Rules Committee. Let’s put the Van Hollen, Lee, and Levin amendment on the floor tonight, tomorrow. Call us back, Mr. Boehner, call us back, Mr. Boehner. Let us vote to provide for unemployment insurance for working men and women – “

Unemployment benefits don’t go to working men and women, unless Lee intends to change the nature of unemployment benefits entirely.

Why don't we do something that might get those working men and women actually working? But Obama and the Democrats in general have shown that they don't know what that would be.

They want so much to define us by class, but America doesn't have a ready made vocabulary for classes; what she meant was working class. What that means I don't know.

It's cultural.

Stone Age culture.

I'm sure it made sense to Joe Biden.

Are they working men and women when they are not working?

I hate to say it but this time she is right. My hours have been cut from all the OT I could handle down to the Obamacare limit of 29 hours a week. I am collecting partial unemployment to make up the difference. Thanks, America!
