Senate Fails to Pass 3-Month Extension of Jobless Benefits
...Democrats hope to turn the issue into an election year cudgel and have been blaming Republicans for ignoring people who are out of work. Republicans have balked at that as political smoke.
“We know it’s a political game,” said Senator Orrin G. Hatch of Utah. “We know they’d like to bring it up every three months and bash Republicans with it.”
...“The perception that I get from the Senate right now is, ‘Times are tough. We should make times tougher on our kids to make it easier on us, and then feel better,'” said Representative James Lankford, Republican of Oklahoma. “And I think that’s just not a philosophy I’m willing to support.”
