Letter to the Editor
Today was another good day for President Obama and America. First, his Supreme Court nominee Elana Kagan was approved by the Judicary Committee. And then Obama busted the Republican filibuster and the Senate voted to approve emergency unemployment benefits for the unemployed. That was the big victory because most of these unemployed remember that they lost their jobs because of Bush and the Republicans. Now the Republicans want to cut them off in favor of maintaining tax cuts for the rich. With the unemployment rate at 9.5% it makes me wonder if they are going to vote for the party that caused the problems or the party that’s fixing it?
