So given their druthers, the Republicans would rather screw the long-term unemployed out of the pittance they get on unemployment. They don't put it that way, of course; they merely offer states the "option" of spending federal unemployment funding on their debt instead of unemployment benefits.

After some encouraging signs that Republicans might cooperate with them, the two House Democrats trying to give the long-term jobless extra weeks of unemployment benefits are dismayed the GOP has instead moved a bill that could take benefits away.

“Instead of acting on our bill to extend aid to unemployed workers who have exhausted their benefits, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Camp wants to gut unemployment benefits and deny millions of jobless workers the means to help make ends meet," Lee and Scott said in a statement. Camp's office declined to comment. Ways and Means will vote on Camp's bill on Wednesday.

Next cut...SNAP. I believe that is one issue they will be discussing with the President on Thursday is TANF. That program is in jeopardy too. I know I will be one of the first to lose benefits under SNAP because I am single with grown children. Starve us first I guess so we won't be needing Medicare anytime in the near future.

WHY are they doing this? It wont help anything...we all know that. They must know it too. I could probably handle it better if they had a good reason. cutting food stamps will hurt the economy, so wont cutting UE benefits. I want to know WHY!!! there is no other good reason other wanting to hurt people or show them who's boss, IMO.
