North Carolina Senator Richard Burr appears to be trying to live up to his self-characterization as the most the right-wing member of the Senate.
Last night Burr voted against extending unemployment benefits for an additional month for laid off workers in North Carolina and across the country as the Senate finally passed the extension that was held up several days by Republican Senator Jim Bunning.
Now we don’t have to take Burr’s word for it about his extremism. The thouands of people in North Carolina struggling to make ends meet while they look for work can confirm it.
