The General Assembly Republicans just rejected $150 million federal dollars to help Virginia's unemployed.
Sen. Kenneth Cuccinelli, R-Fairfax County, said Kaine and legislative Democrats used the dire economy to force through unpalatable policy... “We are being used. Actually, our constituents and now the unemployed are being used by this administration to put a gun to the head of the General Assembly and force through a bad bill that would never survive on its own,“
Let me get this straight. Ken Cuccinelli is saying the unemployed were being "used" by Tim Kaine because Tim wanted to expand their benefits?!?!?! That is one of the dumbest things to ever come out of Ken's mouth. This is Cuccinelli's "Let Them Eat Cake" moment and it will haunt him for the rest of his political career. At least until voters realize they only need to add one more person to the unemployment line to be represented adequately in the State Senate.
