Remembering the Recession on St. Patrick's Day ~ "The 99er's Blight"

Post by Guest on Thu Mar 17, 2011 12:55 am

Since the Economic Recovery Act became law in 2009, more than 400,000 Americans have filed first time claims for unemployment benefits every week save two. Our jobs crisis still affects over 30 million Americans. Yet, President Obama keeps searching for "solutions on the cheap," according to one adviser quoted in the New York Times Magazine. And Congress seems intent on deep spending cuts even for programs that assist the unemployed.

What is missing from the White House and Congress approach is any sense of urgency. For millions of 99ers -- Americans who have exhausted all unemployment benefits -- this is a time of blight.
