Washington, DC - Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky was among those who voted against Extended Unemployment Compensation (EUC), Feb 6.

In December, Paul stated in a FOX news interview that he was against more than 26 weeks of unemployment benefits.

“If you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers. When you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks, you’re causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy” said Paul.

Rand Paul is a typical Greedy American Politician

They help no one but themselves. Changing and voting for laws that benefit their companies and interests. GREEDY POOR EXCUSE OF A MAN.

Rand Paul, you are an idiot.

Rand Paul, you are an idiot. It is not the unemployed's fault that a bunch of drunk Republican faggots ruined the economy and now don't want to pay for the mess they made
