McConnell: ‘How about we actually try to create jobs?’

Here we are, in the sixth year of this administration and we’re still talking about emergency unemployment benefits. After all the stimulus bills and all the other big-government solutions that were meant to help the little guy, we’re still looking at record long-term unemployment. We’re still looking at hundreds of thousands of able-bodied men and women just giving up on finding a job in this economy last month alone. One report I saw even suggests that about half of our nation’s counties have yet to return to their pre-recession economic output.’
