You think if you're drawing unemployment there should be DEPENDANT BENEFITS for the entire family?

And I guess you think that's FREE, and nobody has to pay for it?.

Go get a job, you whiney lazy liberal.

It turns out that it has to do with the stimulus money running out.
Unemployment benefits are back down to what they were, before the state got all those Obamabucks to make them bigger.
The best solution is still to go find a job.

Why go find a job if he still has his old lady working at Walmart or the local gas station. Working would cut down on hunting, fishing and hanging around with the good ole boys. Don't need that crap.

You dumb azz, As an employer I pay the unemployment and If I pay it in when I have to let someoone go. They should be able to draw what they can. The governments need to leave those funds alone and quit spending money making laws.

Speaking of dumb azzes, read the articles now online regarding this bill. Or just read the entire thread before commenting. You'll discover that as an employer you do NOT pay the portion which they are cutting. It was an increase funded by the federal stimulus money which is no longer available.

To maintain those benefits an employer would have to pay more. They chose to cut the benefits.

Bull $hit where did that money come from. If it were federal then Mr.Matlock wouldn't care.
