the only folks whose unemployment checks stop 12/29 are those who were already on extension. Those not already on extension will be able to receive checks but won't be able to request an extension.

These extended jobless benefits are a bunch of BS anyway - take them away. People should receive the standard unemployment which runs a few months when they lose their job. But shit, some of these people seem to think their unemployment benefits should run indefinitely.

Bullshit scare tactics from people who don't know what they are talking about.

The states pay unemployment out of their own funds. The fed subsidizes the states' unemployment insurance.

Fed shutting down has nothing to do with unemployment in the short term. It will keep getting paid until those assholes up there decide that they can represent us for 5 seconds and work out something.

Besides. It ain't gonna happen anyway. All of those congressmen want to get elected again. Obama can't run for another term anyway. They are just showboating so they can generate material for the next election because they know they need to have something to distract people from what failures they have been for the last few years. They know how bad their approval rating is, and they saw several seats lost in an election that should have by all rights gained them a few seats, or at the very least maintained the status quo. They know if they don't do something to energize their base to distract from their records, we are going to be looking at their majority shrinking even further in the house, or possibly a Dem takeover, along with a Dem super majority in the Senate.

They are gonna drag out these talks and do whatever they can to get on TV and act like they are fighting the good fight. Then at the last moment, they will pass a stopgap measure that gives Obama a little bit of what he wants, and punts the ball down the field a little further so they can have an issue to run on in the next election.
