    Vote for and pass HR5749 extending unemployment benefits. Kentucky is hurting. Don’t play politics and power games with this bill. The House members who voted against this have heard loud and clear about their mistake. The people are watching because it is important for people’s very survival. Vote yes this bill has been needed for many since Christmas and they can’t wait anymore!

    Middle class America wake up! A vote for a Republican is a vote for your own demise. Is war moral or do the Republicans just use religion to sell out the well meaning and good folks of America? Remember in November!!!!!! Vote all these bums out!!!!!!!!

    “We simply cannot ask the American taxpayer to subsidize failure,” McConnell said on the senate floor regarding bailing out the Big Three, yet he voted aye for the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, which kept those AIG crooks afloat without any regard to regulation or future failures on their behalf. Complete hypocrisy.

    America has lost too much of our industry. To loose one that we are dependent on-the auto industry- and be completely dependent on other countries for autos is foolish in the extreme. As the value of the dollar drops, those foreign cars will be even more expensive. Didn’t we learn our lesson being dependent for outside oil? Many states will lose over 50 thousand jobs related directly or indirectly to the auto industry. Up to 2 million people could find themselves unemployed or their small business failing. We don’t have the funds for extending unemployment benefits for even one year, let alone 2 or three. If you think it’s bad now, wait until those 2 million are added to the already growing number of people out of work! It will start the Great Depression of 2008- but, hey, maybe they are waiting until Bush leaves office so it will be Obama’s depression.
    Hospitals are already seening the result of lost insurance and jobs in over crowded emergency rooms and barely able to cope.
    We bailed out banks, with no information given on which banks were getting the money, how they were using it and told we shouldn’t ask. Now we find they are still not loaning it to businesses to keep them going. The Fed Reserve is composed of a group of private banks, that Congress gave the power to print our currency in l913- and it is unconstitutional- as the Constitution states that only the Federal Government has the right to determine currency and that states may only make gold or silver coins. Every time the Fed prints more money, it lessens the value of the dollar. But being a group of banks, they don’t care, because then they can charge the taxpayer interest on it for generations. Nixon took us off the gold standard, which means there is nothing of real value to back up those greenbacks.
    McConnell is obviously not for the working man, he is in league, along with most Republicans, with big business and the banks. As long as they can make money, and keep us under their heel, they could care less about the rest of us. It’s when the lower income and middle income become educated, and begin to make money that they become a threat and need to be ‘knocked down’ a notch. The wealthy can ride out a downturn in the economy and they know the rest of us may not, and will be at their mercy again, with poor schools and less jobs and lower wages. Every gain in salary, safe working conditions and benefits has happened through the cooperation of labor unions and Democrats. Sure, Republicans want ‘smaller government’ so they can take away civil service jobs and pass them on instead to the private companies that give big bucks toward their re-election- and those companies charge a lot more to do the jobs the civil service did for us. Is small government smart when handled that way and cost us more?
    Fire the CEO’s their Boards of Directors of the auto industry,put a government watchdog over it to retool the plants for energy wise cars and mass transit both. Instead of blowing money away in the wind with banks, at least you get a product that produces even more jobs that we can actually see and use and KNOW where our money went.

    Economic crisis brings lots of troubled to us. Everybody is carrying huge of burdens on shoulder and each day passes by, we find it more and more difficult to lift up. States like Michigan and California are in need of a payday loan since it plays an important part in the economy. President-elect Barack Obama made an economic address to the public in Fairfax, Virginia regarding the stimulus package he has put together in hopes of rebuilding “lost trust and confidence” in the nation and its people. Everyone agrees that we need a stimulus package, and fast because too many people are needing a payday loan these days. Reacting to the Obama speech, however, a few Republicans had something to say regarding the new stimulus plan. House Minority Leader John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell agreed that the plan, as proposed, was too expensive. Boehner called for balance, and McConnell suggested that the only way these states will use this money responsibly is to make it not a grant, but a loan.

    I am a fellow republican and would like to suggest and request that you as well as all other republicans vote to pass s.1230 and I urge congress to get this done soon as intrest rates are rising which will cause a slow down in the rebound of the realestate industry.

    Hey anonymous you stupid coward why don’t you crawl back under your rock where it’s safe and you don’t have to think cause your not very good at it.
    Have you figured out that the wealthy are the one in this country who create the job that you have"? Universal health care will bankrupt the economy as will cap and trade. Maybe you want to live under a socialist government but the intelligent people want our government back.

    Senator McConnell – Thank you for the common sense to oppose Judge Sonya Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court. I live in California (and am female) and it’s impossible to get Senator Boxer or Senator Feinstein to oppose this nomination – they are not using any criteria except that Sotomayor is hispanic and female. Those are not reasons to put someone on the Supreme Court of the United States. Thank you for looking at the Sotomayor historical record and stepping out with some backbone and standing up for what is right.

    Female and hispanic is not the reason JUSTICE Sotomayor was confirmed. The population of this country is becoming more and more diverse, year after year. JUSTICE Sotomayor was confirmed because of her experience as a judge, as a prosecutor, as a lawyer, and as a citizen of this country. She is a success story of the highest magnitude. She will be a valuable asset to the Supreme Court and will bring a perspective that has, for too long, been missing from the highest court in this land. Sen. McConnell has chosen to pick one or two rulings, out of hundreds, to rationalize the reason to vote no, and you have just congratulated him on his narrow-mindedness. Well, as someone who lives in Kentucky, you and California can have him!!

    Although you bring up a very pleasant reason why she was chosen, it is very unfair to assume that the fact that she was Hispanic had nothing to do with that. I am not saying that is a bad thing, but it is definitely here.

    Please speak out for courteous public discourse. Our town hall meetings are being overrun by groups that seem to think their right to voice their opinion and anger trumps everyone Else’s rights and opinions. There is no justification for this mob mentality in our free society when listening is more important than screaming to be heard. Those that disrupt by claiming to be the sole correct voice of our society wish to close the minds of a community brought together for for open discussion.

  • cosmos 08/28/2009 9:50am

    Not only are you in the V.A’s pocketbook (total speculation) but you’re a coward you and Mccain and Kit. I can’t believe you have the audacidy and total unhonorable plan to have a closed town hall meeting, in Kansas? None of the other Sen. are even from Kansas. You’re all Cowards. Come to your own state and speak with your own state. That goes for all the other yellow-bellied white-collars that you’re rubbing elbows with.

  • kentuckygirl 09/23/2009 11:36pm

    Mr. McConnell thank you for the help with the Vets. They need all the support they can get. What’s up with not posting the health care bill on line so the voters can read it. I know there are some in Washington that think that since we went to school before the left wingers changed all of the text books we can’t read. This is beyond contempt. Also what is this STUFF video that is being shown to the children of this country in their classrooms. Just more left wing propagada to try is endoctrinate our children to their way of thinking. I watched a video the other day at Berkley and was amazed to learn that Ben Franklin was the favorite president of this country for “College Students”.

    McConnell..quit playing games with the unemployment extension. People are hurting and jobs are not to be found. Amazing how we can bail out the banking industry and the crooks on Wall St., but the real victims in this country are just left hanging. We didn’t choose to have our jobs outsourced, closed or moved. That was all done thanks to some of the “great” legislation that our government has allowed over the years to be passed. Keep taking care of the wealthy and keep screwing the middle class and poor. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Luckily, the bitch is behind the lack of oversight on the auto industry along with being in the top 15 most corrupt senators. You have the love the bs that runs out this particular PORKer’s mouth. The bitch claims to be all about a balanced budget, while taking far more for his state than the state takes in. The hypocrisy of this loser is without equal. It is probably only a matter of time before the bitch is caught in some mens room like his old pal larry craig.

    Dear Senator,
    If you show up at the televised health-care summit, consider yourself duped and a sucker.

    Money trail: Homemakers, students & other non-income earners $279,865

    This guy needs to go back into his shell. He is laughing at the public, while they pay for his healthcare. His CEO friends at the insurance companies are getting paid multi-million dollar salaries. It gives mitch a big john boner when he thinks about it.

  • bobbief 04/21/2010 5:53pm

    Sir, Please give your support to Kevin’s Law. Having Monsanto in control of our nation’s food supply is inviting a disaster of larger proportion than the bailouts for Wallstreet. No one company should have the power to sue any citizen that speaks against them. And no one company should control our government and judicial system to this magnitude. Please, for the people, represent our interests on a safer free-market food supply. We all have to eat, your family included. Please, make it your agenda. Do the right thing.
