WASHINGTON — Some unemployment benefits could dry up Monday. Newly laid-off workers wouldn't get federal help with health insurance premiums.

Road and transit bills could go unpaid, Medicare payments to doctors would stay high and rural satellite reception could be affected, all thanks to Sen. Jim Bunning's decision to block legislation that would keep alive a host of programs that expire Sunday night.

The Kentucky Republican, according to several sources, told Democratic colleagues "tough shit" Thursday when they tried to get him to change his mind.

People should express to the Senator what they think of him. I suggest they use a lot of foul language.

Remember what I said about this complete lack of empathy that is endemic in many people?

There you go..
