Reince Priebus: Democrats secretly oppose unemployment insurance

Reince Preibus's new year's resolution appears to be to make it as painfully obvious as possible that he is absolutely full of bull.

Yesterday, all but six Republican senators voted to block the Senate from taking up a bill extending unemployment insurance for three months.

In spite of this, that very same day, the RNC Chairman complained to radio host Lars Larson that it is actually the Democrats who don't want jobless aid to pass in the Senate.

According to Preibus, President Obama is promoting income inequality and does not want the bill to pass as some sort of convoluted Obamacare plot.

"I think the President is the king of income inequality," said Priebus. "He has doubled food stamps, the poor are poorer under this president, Wall Street is doing better under this president and he's jamming Obamacare under everybody's throat."

"All of this kind of stuff is ridiculous because we're spending all of our time actually talking and perpetrating what the Democrats actually want," he also stated. "They don't want this to pass, what they want to do is they want to talk about these things, they want to talk about minimum wage and what they want to do ultimately is create a campaign issue, this sort of rich vs. poor, the same old thing they can do and avoid Obamacare. That's what they want."

Yet not only has his own party publicly opposed even discussing the measure, Lars Larson's guest from the previous night, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) stated that he has consistently opposed extensions of unemployment insurance.

Just how much more blatant can Preibus possibly make it?
