Republicans admit the deficit doesn't matter
While 55,000 of you a day are losing your unemployment benefits because the GOP says they don't want to increase the deficit, those same GOPers are fighting to keep the Bush tax cuts for the rich in place arguing that deficits don't matter when it comes to the rich.
You're being screwed by Republicans on behalf of the rich, who were the "undisputed winners" of Bush's tax cuts. Check out the chart above to see just how much Republicans who are pushing to extend those cuts really care about the deficit.
And as you sit there, wondering how you're going to make it without your unemployment payments--which were probably a fraction of what you were making at your old job, but helped--remember this: The Bush tax cuts were supposed to create jobs.
How's that working out for you, America?
