( - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says the Republican refusal to include unemployment benefits in the Ryan-Murray budget deal is immoral.

"It's interesting to note that they rejected unemployment insurance -- this is so unconscionable, it's practically at the level of immoral to do. The people who work hard, play by the rules, lose their job through no fault of their own, are not able to get -- continue to get an unemployment insurance check."

Again, as I say, not only is it a bad idea from a humanity standpoint, but from an economic standpoint. For every dollar spent on unemployment benefits, it grows the economy by $1.52, a dollar and a half."

Nancy the unemployment rate is down, why do you need this? The economy is doing great the White House tells us. :whistle:
