...and just to make it extra clear what side they're on: The Republicans hold back unemployment benefits in response to tax cuts

Or, to be more precise, because Obama wanted to end tax cuts for the rich, tax cuts which decimated the budget in the Bush years, Republicans vowed to not extend unemployment benefits that ran out on the first. Obama caved, extended the tax cuts for the wealthiest of Americans, and the unemployed, people who have been thrown out of jobs because of the recession, got to have money to pay rent in the run up to Christmas. Have a happy holiday, brought to you by the Republican Party.
