TWENTY ONE DAYS Since Congress Allowed EXTENDED Unemployment Benefits TO LAPSE
[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

Congress has had a hard time lately finding the will to help the poor, the old and the jobless.

It's been a full three weeks since lawmakers failed to reauthorize extended unemployment benefits, to prevent a 21 percent pay cut to doctors who see Medicare patients and to provide states with $24 billion in Medicaid assistance. The House passed a bill at the end of May, but the Senate adjourned for its Memorial Day recess without acting. Since then, Senate Democrats have been unable to muster the 60 vote supermajority needed to get the legislation done.

Meanwhile, 903,000 people jobless through no fault of their own have missed unemployment checks and doctors are getting shorted for taking care of old folks.

What are these people going ot do with no income and no job prospects?

Well, it is debatable as to why they are unemployed, but the system is broke, very broke, its only a matter of all it all comes down. Over 50% of the american people receive some or all of their monthly income from some level of government. Government is broke. Paymens will end, or at least meaningful payments will end.It will be very nasty.
