House Republicans Coached to Show Compassion

"House Republican leaders sent a memo this week to the entire GOP conference with talking points designed to help rank-and-file Republicans show compassion for the unemployed and explain the Republican position on unemployment benefits," the Washington Post reports.

In the memo, House Republicans "are urged to be empathetic toward the unemployed and understand how unemployment is a 'personal crisis' for individuals and families. The memo also asks Republicans to reiterate that the House will give "proper consideration" to an extension of long-term insurance as long as Democrats are willing to support spending or regulatory reforms."
