It just pisses me off that the whole time of our lives has just been about surviving some stupid solar event. Fucking bump in the road, yet people are still boxed in on some economic little ant government thing worrying about the fiscal cliff. Idiocy of necessary steps, but what a pile of chaff in our face.

Re: Over two million people will stop receiving jobless benefits immediately if Congress doesn't make a #fiscalcliff deal!!!
WASHINGTON (KGO) -- Millions of unemployed Americans have another reason to worry about "fiscal cliff" budget talks that seek to avoid looming tax increases and dire spending cuts come January.

About 2.1 million people will stop receiving jobless benefits immediately if Congress doesn't reauthorize federal unemployment insurance programs by year's end. Another 1 million will lose benefits over the first three months of 2013.

White House officials have assured Democrats that President Barack Obama is committed to extending benefits for another year. Obama has proposed the $30 billion extension as part of ongoing negotiations over cutting federal deficits.

Republicans generally have avoided talking about the issue so far. But many GOP lawmakers have resisted the idea of more jobless aid without additional spending cuts to offset the cost.

President Obama is taking a sharply partisan tone in his weekly address, blaming House Republicans for blocking a bill to resolve the 'fiscal cliff' crisis.

As we move closer to the year-end deadline when deep program cuts and huge tax increases kick in, Congress has still not compromised on whether taxes should be raised on wealthier Americans to help reduce the deficit.

The latest Senate version would prevent a tax hike on the first quarter-million dollars of earnings.

"Even the wealthiest Americans would get a tax cut on the first 250-thousand dollars of their income. And families everywhere would enjoy some peace of mind. The Senate has alread done thier part. And we're just waiting for Republicans in the House to do their part. But so far they've put forward an unbalanced plan that actually lowers rates for the wealthiest Americans," President Obama said.

Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio says tax increases will not reduce the nation's $16 trillion debt.

From the senator’s office:

… spending on federal welfare benefits, if converted into cash payments, equals enough to provide $30.60 per hour, 40 hours per week, to each household living below poverty. The median household hourly wage is $25.03. After accounting for federal taxes, the median hourly wage drops to between $21.50 and $23.45, depending on a household’s deductions and filing status. State and local taxes further reduce the median household’s hourly earnings. By contrast, welfare benefits are not taxed.

That's the same song and dance they played at the last increase of $$ limit....termination of unemployment benefits.

They will NEVER do that EVER! even if they dont get a deal done, they will still fund ALL benefit programs.

Unemployment is not the entitlement that needs to be cut. These people have been working and paying taxes and UI. It is the ones that have not paid any taxes ... food stamps to welfare queens and illegal immigrants.

Stop worrying about the fiscal cliff. John Boehner and his sissy boys will surrender. They will put together some crap package, praise it, and go home.

The economy will grow worse and those clowns and the criminal in the WH will blame each other. None of it will matter in terms of the next election because the Democrooks have found out that they can rig the elections and the Republicans will lay down and pretend nothing illegal happened.

I would agree with you *IF* everyone on the rolls was a taker/loser, too lazy to work, sitting around on their fat ass eating Cheetoes all day.

Then there are those like I am: about 50, never drew benefits before, worked my entire life, laid off when my work went to INDIA, and only been drawing for 9 months. I'm in school full-time, retraining for something else, and NEED that money to live on.

That will show a HUGE decrease in the next unemployment rate report. After all, the number of people receiving unemployment benefits is what is used to determine it. Unlike the very real percentage of unemployed Americans.

Insanity.
