Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said Monday that the Republicans’ failure to extend long-term unemployment benefits to Americans is “vulgar.”
“Unfortunately, we have a lot of people in elective office who are not willing to help those who are in trouble, and the recovery has been good for Wall Street. One percent of the American people has benefited or had 95 percent of the recovery [and] 95 percent of the public has had no recovery at all. This is absolutely necessary, and the failure to do so I think is vulgar,” Cleaver said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation”.
The Senate on Tuesday voted to extend jobless benefits to the unemployed, and the measure goes to the House for consideration.
