As Working Class Missouri Families Struggle, Roy Blunt Pulls The Plug

October 12, 2011

News On The Net

In typical Republican Party posturing, Senate Republicans, including Missouri’s own Roy Blunt, yesterday put the brakes on President Obama’s sweeping job legislation.  And as the nation’s unemployment rate hovers around 9%, one would have to question if that was the smartest thing to do.  President Obama’s legislation is a mixture of infrastructure spending and working family tax cuts and experts have said, there are measures in the bill that have garnered both Democrat and Republican support in the past.  You can read more on the President Obama’s American Jobs Act by visiting the link here.  However, none of this was enough for Roy Blunt and his Republican colleagues in the Senate.  But, I am guessing that if the President had included billions in tax giveaways to corporate titans, oil companies and the richest 1% of Americans, Senator Blunt would have been fully onboard.

Senator Blunt didn’t stop at voting down the American Jobs Act.  Senator Blunt took it a step further on MSNBC, saying essentially, there is nothing the Senate can do to help with the nations unemployed.  However, there is plenty Roy can do for you if you own your own oil company or have more than twenty-five million dollars in the bank.  Isn’t that right, Roy?
