Led by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, House Republicans have “painted themselves into the far extreme” by putting the kibosh on a bipartisan Senate bill to extend a lapsed unemployment insurance program, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday.
“Here we go again,” Pelosi said during a press conference. “Months have gone by, and over two million people have not received their unemployment benefit on long-term unemployment.
“These families are in danger now of losing their homes,” she went on. “And why? Because of the extreme nature, the indifference, of the Republicans in the House, to the needs of the American people, even after the Senate in a bipartisan way has passed a compromise with pay-fors.”
