Reid Spokesman: Republicans Should Stop Using Out-Of-Work Americans As Political Pawns

Washington, DCSpokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, Jim Manley, released the following statement today after Republicans blocked efforts to extend unemployment benefits for out-of-work Americans:
 
“Republicans continue to treat the American people as expendable political pawns.  Now, they won’t even agree to a vote on their own amendment to an extension of benefits for unemployed workers.  Their frustration with not getting their way in the debate on health insurance reform should not be placed on the backs of out-of-work Americans.”
