Republicans block extension of Unemployment Benefits

Yes, that's right. While shouting out that they can't authorize this extension of unemployment benefits because it will increase the deficit, Republicans hypocritically push for extension of tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans that would add $700,000,000 to the federal deficit. Is there anyone else out there who thinks that there is something radically wrong here? 

This from Alan Grayson, D-FL:

"I think it's a sad moment," said Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) after the vote. "It appalls me that the Republicans keep pitching and pitching and pitching the tax cuts for the rich and won't join in a bill to help people keep their homes and not have to live in their cars." 

As I write this, the bile is rising in my throat. The hypocrisy, corruption and plain inhumanity of these creatures is simply revolting.
