Re: Over two million people will stop receiving jobless benefits immediately if Congress doesn't make a #fiscalcliff deal!!!
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.

Let the benefits expire. I'm so sick of Washington extending benefits indefinitely on these unemployed people. It gives them absolutely no incentive to find a job. OK, so he wants them to be able to screw around for another year on the government? I'm as empathetic as the next person when a person loses a job. They need a few months of unemployment benefits to tide them over until they can find a job. But the benefits weren't meant to be a permanent fund for them.

And while thats getting canceled they need to discontinue all the damnable disability benefits.
 Quoting: Mr. Toppit


Fuck you!

Easy.... We take care of those that takecare of us. TY for your service. You earned your way , its the millions of slackers. Welfare mommas with three challenged kid because she did drugs during the pregnancy. This is the shit that pisses tax payers off.
I do mean fuck you.

I served this country, became disabled during my time served. Cancel my benefits which gives me a way to live, and to stay out of the ditch?

Fuck you. You have nothing to say until you served this country, and if you have served..a double fuck you for even suggesting this.

Sadly these will be people, 40yo or older, who have fielded 100's of job app's but were not employed because the TPTB want's them young and stupid, not realizing that the continual brain/experience drain on this country is destroying it. While it is hard to appreciate any of the TPTB, there is one, in History, that realized a greater profit potential simply by providing his workers, with better wages and jobs , he was Henry
Ford... to bad his progeny don't realize and act to rediscover the creation of an empowered middle class that wants to buy, if only if it had the means...

Re: Over two million people will stop receiving jobless benefits immediately if Congress doesn't make a #fiscalcliff deal!!!
my mom gets about $150 a week unemployment.

If a million people were getting $150 a week, that would be about 7 billion dollars a year. That is a drop in the bucket, the Federal budget is 3 TRILLION year. That is .2% of the Federal budget.

They claim Federal Unemployment costs hundreds of billions a year, that's because of the people who get huge checks, like $1000 a week, even thousands of millionaires get unemployment and they get the biggest checks.

It's not the poor people on unemployment that are the problem, it's the rich people on unemployment.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25773843


they do that here.

for the first 6 months out of work we get jobseekers allowance which makes up the jobless figures. after 6 months its less money and called something else which takes you off the jobless list.

If they didn't outsource jobs overseas, bring in 13 to 18 million illegals, bring in millions of immigrants, and hire millions of H1 and H2 workers on visas, then there wouldn't be so many unemployed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12582603


Exactly. The Democrats want America to be awash in poor people -- that's their power base. If poverty declines, Democrat power declines. That's why they want amnesty for illegal aliens, most of whom are poor.

Poor, desperate people needing government assistance -- that's beautiful music to Liberal ears.

And arrogant Republicans sneering with contempt at the poor (like in this thread) -- that's also beautiful music to Liberal ears.
