Have The Unemployed 99'rs Taken America Into A Death Spiral?

Postby Garafeld » Tue Sep 19, 2017 8:55 pm

99 Weeks of unemployment PLUS extension after extension has bankrupted state unemployment insurance funds across America

These funds must be replenished, and that's done by charging business INCREASED premiums, in the form of payroll tax, for each new hire.

This new payroll tax burden has killed job creation , making it too costly to hire - perpetuating unemployment

Each month unemployment funds get deeper into debt, making it less and less likely business will be able to afford to hire - bringing us further into a deeper hole.

Have liberals sent America into a death spiral, just to purchase the votes of the unemployed?

It is mostly people that give tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas, and make all these free trade agreements with countries that have the cheapest labor that is causing the unemployment. That would be most Republicans.


The Dems are screwing up also, but in other ways like making a health care bill that doesn't really work but increases expenses on employers. This also is killing jobs, but nowhere near as much as mainstream Republicans.

For these people, unemployment compensation has become a way of life.
They are the perfect Democrats.

If the economy improves under President Obama, the Republicans lose, if mortgage defaults stop the Republicans lose, if people eat and pay their rent the Republicans lose. The Republicans only win if America fails in the next two years.

Expect no mercy, no compassion, no assistance for the next two years.

Do expect to be called every name in the book, lazy, ignorant, porch monkey, welfare Queen, un-american, leach, parasite, everything to make the poor and unemployed seem unworthy of support.

What a skewed point of view you have. Statistically, there are 5 applicants for every open job in the U.S. today. What do you propose 80% of the unemployed should do once their benefits expire? The jobs have been sent overseas. This will be the first time in the history of our country that unemployment compensation is not extended with the unemployment rate this high and the result will cause social upheaval that will make history. I have worked steadily for over 40 years and am now caught in this catch 22: I cannot find a job because the politicians have created a situation in our country where there are no jobs, and now they are cutting off my unemployment and telling the world I am lazy. The politicians that are intended to serve the American people are instead profiting on our demise. The revolution we wanted in the 1960's may yet come to pass.


Can anyone propose a short list of politicians most responsible for the denial of continued unemployment compensation? A SHORT LIST OF NAMES OF THE POLITICIANS WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BLATANTLY DISMISSING THE WELL BEING OF 20% OF ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS?

Conservatives who continue to spend billions in Iraq and Afghanistan have sent this country into a death spiral.

You really want to see the national homeless numbers go up? These people can barely afford to keep their houses while they're on unemployment checks, and now you want to take them away? You've clearly never been on unemployment checks, but I have (not anymore, though). There's barely enough money to pay the mortgage, buy groceries, pay the bills, buy gas. It's not like the government's sending every unemployed person a check for 100,000 dollars. It's minuscule, and a minuscule part of the budget compared to the money we're wasting on those wars.
