Texas Democrat, Sheila Jackson-Lee, wants Congress to act. She thinks we need to pay unemployment payments to people… who are already working.
No, seriously. On the floor of the House, Jackson-Lee blabbered that Congress needs to vote. “Let us vote to provide for unemployment insurance for working men and women,” she blared.
Rep. Sheial Jackson-Lee, D, Texas.
“So we can’t be only about our self 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,” Jackson-Lee pompously began.
“And so I ask this, Mr. Woodall, and the Rules Committee, let’s put the Van Hollen-Lee-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 so that faces across America will not the tear of desperation on their face. The deal is good, but the people are suffering. We cannot allow this to happen this season of joy and giving,” she screamed.

Of course, the bill in question would not give unemployment payments to “working men and women.”
Because…. well, they already have jobs.
This is the same woman who thought it was wonderful when the U.S. astronauts planted their flag… on Mars.
