Most Of The Unemployed No Longer Receive Benefits

Post by Guest on Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:14 am

Early last year, 75 percent were receiving checks. The figure is now 48 percent – a shift that points to a growing crisis of long-term unemployment. Nearly one-third of America's 14 million unemployed have had no job for a year or more.

"There's going to be increased hardship," said Wayne Vroman, an economist at the Urban Institute.

The number of unemployed has been roughly stable this year. Yet the number receiving benefits has plunged 30 percent

Are you listening Congress? Last November was an election all about Jobs and the Economy, so since you have done nothing about either, unless you count a down grade from AAA as a benefit, will you please do something for the people directly affected by this? It's only been a year, and you have been so busy trying to make President Obama a one term President and passing no legislation that is stabilizing the economy or creating jobs, how about a little help on the benefits front. Not good for the deficit, try this on, the millions without benefits spend no money and their numbers increase daily, they spend no money, is that clear enough for you. The economy needs people spending money to create consumer confidence, which encourages people to hire. Time to act, now.

I support you carrying the torch for the unemployed. But contrary to your suggesting that the House is obstructing, it's my understanding that they have sent fifteen job creation bills to the Senate, which have all been shelved by the Senate majority leader who is not interested in debating the merits of any House endeavors. On the other hand the House and Senate have considered and openly debated Obamas jobs plan before rejecting it.

PS And yes it would be gladdening to see someone promoting extensions and/or something to address the millions of unemployed who've exhausted all benefits and have nowhere else to turn.

I don't think the House has proposed any job creation bills in this session of Congress. What they have proposed are further tax cuts for big business as incentives to hire, among other things.

What bills are you talking about that Harry Reid has shelved? I must have missed something.

“Forgotten 15″ – 15 bills that include one that would stop the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating the waste from coal-fired power plants as a hazardous material. The list also includes measures to end a moratorium on offshore drilling imposed last year by Mr. Obama after the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Instead of taxing large corporations their fair share, we are going to line the pockets of the big oil companies some more, creating a danger to our environment and climate? Loosen EPA restrictions to cause even further damage to our planet and people to benefit the lobbyists who buy off these politicians? These don't sound like reasonable job creation bills to me. Oh yes, then there is of course fracking, which is thought to be the cause of two recent earthquakes, one in Virginia and one in Oklahoma. Coincidence that these quakes struck areas that quakes rarely hit and fracking nearby? No, I don't think so.

Rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure is a much more reasonable job creation plan than ruining the world we live in so the rich don't have to pay up!

These are jobs bills. Not rape the wealthy bills. We need jobs, not stolen money. And the infrastructure you're talking about is shorttime jobs which wouldn't even begin for some time. Remember the Obama shovel ready jobs not being exactly shovel ready? At any rate, there are fifteen or so House bills that haven't seen the light of day because of the Dem controlled Senate. So the merits cannot even be revealed, discussed or debated or voted on. The obstructionism then is sitting squarely in the Dem party, and has been since day one 2009, from which point the Republican party has been denied effective legislative input on practically everything. BTW, there has always been a lot of seismic activity in Oklahoma, most of it unnoticed. The recent quake though stronger than normal, was equal to one in 1952.

The quake in Oklahoma was the strongest one there since record-keeping began.
