Yup. How about that. And guess who voted to keep that going?
From The Daily Caller –
Senate Democrats on Wednesday defeated an amendment to pay for the $60 billion in unemployment insurance payments that were included in President Obama’s tax deal with Republicans, which included a provision that would have eliminated taxpayer-funded benefits for millionaires.
A total of 50 Democrats and two independents voted against the measure, sponsored by Sen. Tom Coburn, to cut a total of $156 billion in spending over five years.
