Radical Left Wants Sen. Bunning Ousted From Baseball Hall of Fame For Opposing Unemployment Benefits
More thug politics.
The radical left wants Senator Bunning ousted from the Baseball Hall of Fame for opposing the democrat’s plan to extend unemployment benefits and increase the national debt. Democrats passed a paygo rule just two weeks ago. They already violated that rule. Bunning wanted to hold them accountable.
The Hill reported:
Sen. Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) should be ousted from the Baseball Hall of Fame because of his block on extending unemployment benefits, according to a group that advocates for the unemployed.
The benefits expire Sunday.
“The most obscene thing he can do is prevent jobless Americans from getting their $350 a week unemployment check,” Rick Sloan, acting executive director of Ur Union of Unemployed, a grass roots organization for unemployed Americans, told The Hill.
Sloan’s group is creating an online petition to remove Bunning from Baseball’s Hall of Fame. The list is expected to be operational by the weekend.
“His legacy as a great ball player is about to be surpassed by his reputation as an obstinate and uncaring ideologue,” Sloan said in a statement.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has tried for three days to extend the expiring employment provisions, only to be rebuffed by Bunning who demands the bill’s $10 billion cost be offset. Reid has argued the legislation is for emergency reasons and therefore offsets are not required.
Rick Sloan was the communications director for the International Association of Machinists as Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) and was a former Hillary supporter.
