Unemployment benefits are running out for 1.3m unemployed Americans at the end of this month.
Republican Tea Party Senator Rand Paul thinks we’d be doing a “disservice” to the unemployed if we extended those benefits.
He’s just thoughtful that way.
Chris Wallace: Senator, let me ask you a direct question. Do you, personally, do you support extending unemployment benefits or would you let 1.3 million Americans lose those benefits before the end of the year?
Senator Rand Paul: I do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they’re paid for. If you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers.
