How long have you been collecting benefits? Did you think it would go on forever?

Des


What about corporate welfare, should that go on forever too? Or should society continue to absorb the bill? What about the 90 million people who paid for that corporate welfare with their JOBS and their SAVINGS?

You paid for the bail out, and you may still be fortunate enough to still have a gig. But what about those who paid for it with their jobs and homes?

Americans are hard ass workers, most of them. We dont get nearly as much vacation like Europe from what i heard. We're to busy working ourselve to death/debt that we have no time to protest or start a peaceful revolution

Flame away if you want but don't think i need to go into the reasons for denial. You are correct there are guidelines, those guide lines should be for extending, I want the money they took without any type of guidelines. I didn't get a chance to agree to said guidelines before they started taking the money. Also those guide lines are full of loopholes and they look for reasons for you to fall into them. The phone interview is like talking to the police, they twist your answers and try and coach them. I can only speak for the CA EDD, I am sure each state has different guidelines and processes to receiving benefits.

I agree it isn't directly related to what was voted in senate but it is relative to some one struggling with the system which is what the OP asked for

All of a sudden It's cool to call the unemployed lazy! This was never a issue in the past unemployed, now are government are afraid that americans are figuring the government corruption out. Millions are unemployed and quit looking for work and then you wonder why there's people out selling drugs. It astonishes me to no end.

My frustration comes from living in metro detroit
Lol carry on people

Again. What reason were you given for being denied? Were you fired from your job of 3 months? Did you put in enough time on the job to qualify?

OK, I went back and reread your posts. So, you are saying you only want your 5 weeks left of benefits. Are you saying you already collected 85 weeks of benefits, or did you receive more than that?

I'm trying to understand what you are saying.

You responded to a 10 trillion dollar question with references to people who 'go out and buy stuff?' I'm sorry, I thought I was talking to a person who sees the bigger picture. You know.....remember that 10 trillion dollar bailout? Where do you think that money came from? Did you think we could bail out all those criminals and still keep everyone working? Get serious.

90 million people paid the price for that bail out, and the numbers growing. If you're not one of them, then count your blessings and keep your useless opinion to yourself. These people have VERY reasonable grievances, and all they hear are arrogant nimrods who don't even recognize how fortunate they are to be able to keep the heat on and food in the fridge.

You know the nimrods I'm talking about? The brainwashed ones who think that 90 million recently unemployed, tax paying, and contributing people instantly became worthless bums begging for a welfare check.

It's truly insulting to countless millions of people who are losing everything to listen to self righteous brainiacs who think that 'IF YOU DON'T HAVE A JOB, WELL THEN GO GET ONE'' is an original idea. Don't worry. If the corporations have their way, you'll soon be joining them in the food lines.

I'm sooo sorry! I have no safety nets either and I don't know how people make it. The one time I needed it just for a month while waiting for my next job to begin they found a loophole to deny. Broke states will do that too. (It reminds me of insurance companies, they are finding reasons not to pay out...) I only didn't lose my apartment by taking odd jobs (cleaning toilets) and having a brother who volunteered at a food bank or else I would have been standing in line for hours.

But to see this happening at the federal level is gut churning...my heart really goes out to you and others in that boat. I'm not covered and in the blink of an eye my boat could go down too. I hope it's okay that I mention that the 1% Wall St sales tax (tax wall st party) is looking to address this in a constitutional way, which to me, beats the whole "let's have a collapse" party lines that I'm sick of when I see hardworking people who need legitimate help.

Prayers and hope for a solution

Just for the record...employers pay federal unemployment taxes of 6.2 percent on the first $7,000 earned by each of their employees during a calendar year.

The big picture?

Like that is what all social programs are is corporate welfare, but for some odd reason their supporters don't ever want to admit that.

Take from one group to give to another group( employers,rich folks) so they can go out and buy stuff (corporate products) .

For someone claiming to see the 'big picture' doesn't sound like they do.

I think most people would rather that 6.2 percent go to them to save and not the government.

You know how the govt works, if it can be screwed up it will be screwed up. I think it's their motto. Or maybe it's half the results at twice the cost.
