He know’s all about how tough it is for the unemployed. Three of his brothers have lost their jobs due to the recession
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) revealed on Wednesday that three of his brothers lost their jobs during the recession.
Boehner, who has 11 siblings, said he’s not sure whether the three brothers remain unemployed.
See, he’s not just talking out of his rear, he does have personal knowledge of how bad things are in America’s heartland (Ohio), or does he?
“I’ve got real empathy for those who are unemployed, as most of you know I’ve got 11 brothers and sisters. I know that three of my brothers lost their jobs, I’m not sure whether they’ve found jobs, yet, so I’ve got a lot of empathy for those caught in this economic downturn,” Boehner said.
He’s “not sure whether they’ve found jobs…” and that means he has a lot of empathy.
I though empathy was some Democrat, socialist, liberal problem. They certainly castigated Sonia Sotomayor for talking about empathy.
Clueless. and proud of it – John Boehner, Republican from Ohio
