A moment of insanity.

As everyone in America knows there has been a huge fight in congress over extending benefits to people who are currently unemployed. The benefits have mainly blocked by republicans who are concerned over how the extension of benefits would effect the deficit and how would those benefits be paid for. Both of those are very valid concerns but they're offset by the fact that these same republicans have asked for the tax cuts made by former president Bush to be extended. And to add on to it they don't want to even discuss how they would pay for the hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts for the richest 2% of Americans. Watch below as Florida senatorial candidate Marco Rubio explains why he's against spending $33Billion for unemployment benefits but is in favor of spending more than 20 times more on a tax cut.
