Bunning protests planned

Democrats and Republicans plan to clash at a protest Tuesday over the controversy surrounding Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning.

Bunning put a hold on legislation that would extend unemployment benefits.

The move also has two-thousand federal transportation workers temporarily out of jobs.

Bunning argues the $10 billion proposal will just put the country deeper in debt.

Two protests are planned Tuesday in Kentucky -- one in support of Bunning's decision and one opposed to the Kentucky senator.

They are planned to take place outside Bunning's Lexington office in Corporate Drive, off Harrodsburg Road.
