sherrod1 Democratic senator: GOP using unemployed people as pawns to make Dems failWASHINGTON – A Senate Democrat charged that the chamber's GOP leader is compelling his colleagues to block the extension of unemployment benefits in an effort to prevent economic recovery and tarnish Democrats ahead of the November elections.

"I think there are some Republicans that want to vote for it who don't, because [Senate Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is putting so much pressure on Senate Republicans for President Obama and the Democrats to fail," Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) told Raw Story and other reporters on a conference call late Monday afternoon.

"And it's too bad that McConnell does that on the backs of … people that are really, really hurting," he added.
