Obama: Republicans Went Home For Holidays While a Mother Suffers “Who Needs Help Feeding Her Kids”
Barack Obama lashed out at Republicans in his Weekly Address this week accusing the GOP of going home for the holidays while mothers suffer who need help feeding their kids.
The president is currently vacationing in Hawaii.
From President Obama’s Weekly Address:
Just a few days after Christmas, more than one million of our fellow Americans lost a vital economic lifeline – the temporary insurance that helps folks make ends meet while they look for a job. Republicans in Congress went home for the holidays and let that lifeline expire…
…We make this promise to one another because it makes a difference to a mother who needs help feeding her kids while she’s looking for work; to a father who needs help paying the rent while learning the skills to get a new and better job. And denying families that security is just plain cruel. We’re a better country than that. We don’t abandon our fellow Americans when times get tough – we keep the faith with them until they start that new job.
