Showdown set on unemployment bill in Senate

WASHINGTON (AP) — The new year looks a lot like the old one in the Senate, with Democrats scratching for votes to pass an agenda they share with President Barack Obama, and Republicans decidedly unenthusiastic about supporting legislation without changes. At the dawn of the 2014 election year, the issue is unemployment benefits, and a White House-backed bill to renew benefits that lapsed last month for the long-term jobless.

After years of being a John Boehner supporter and even considered a decent Presidential candidate, if he allows this bill to come to a vote, I will no longer support him and actively work for his opponent in the primaries.
