Members of Congress like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul appear to rejoice at the thought of not passing legislation on unemployment benefits. For these men it is wrong for anyone to receive unemployment benefits, food stamps, veteran benefits, or any kind of assistance.
Please take the time to send a little lump of coal to John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan and Rand Paul. And don't forget Michele Bachmann, who seems to have failed American History in high school. If you have a particular tea-party representative you'd like to thank for the recent shutdown that cost taxpayers $28 billion dollars, feel free to send them a little coal, too.
To everyone else I wish Seasons Greetings, and a Happy New Year!
