http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN2616333620100326 The headline: Jobless benefits to expire as Congress fails to act Empasis mine. This is from Reuters, not some little fringe organization. From the article: "Republican Senator Tom Coburn blocked the Senate from voting to extend the program on the grounds its $9.2 billion cost should not add to the deficit." Why is the headline not "Republicans take a stand against ballooning deficit"? The liberal media's propaganda machine is fast at work, that's why.
