Watch: Alan Grayson Slams GOP on Unemployment — ‘May God Have Mercy on Your Souls’


Rep. Alan Grayson goes after Republican resistance to extending unemployment benefits:

"The Republicans have been after all three of those programs ever since 1935. They got welfare a few years ago, because that's poor people. They could jump on them. But unemployment and Social Security is middle-class people -- they haven't been able to get them, but it isn't because they're not willing to try...Now, I know what the Republicans are thinking. They're thinking why don't they just sell some stock...If they're in really dire straits, maybe they could take some of their art collection and send it off to the auctioneer. And if they're in deep, deep trouble maybe these unemployed can sell one of their yachts...And I will say this to the Republicans who have blocked this bill now for months and kept food out of the mouths of children. I will say to them now, may God have mercy on your souls."
