52% of The Unemployed No Longer Receive Benefits:

Post by Guest on Mon Nov 07, 2011 1:01 pm

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.

Congress is expected to decide by year's end whether to continue providing emergency unemployment benefits for up to 99 weeks in the hardest-hit states. If the emergency benefits expire, the proportion of the unemployed receiving aid would fall further.

Congress has extended the program nine times. But it might balk at the $45 billion cost. It will be the first time the Republican-led House will vote on the issue.

Tomorrow, in Ohio we get to vote NO on issue 2. That is a start to stop this greed. See The ED show tonight and Tuesday night. We are fighting back!

The Republicans may win this battle for next year additional benefits. We will win the war!
