I agree. My neighbor is some elderly woman raising her grandchildren who lost her job about 7 months ago, and told my wife that she still hasn't found a job. People like her are sucking us dry.

How can some of you people be so cruel. Being on unemployment is not the easy thing. Imagine going to work one day & then later in the day you are told, thank you for your services we are letting you go. Do you people really think these people want to be out of work, without any insurance benefits. I really hope & pray the ones that are putting up these hateful comments are never put in this situation of having to ask the government for money.

I went to an interview & there was 12 of us interviewing for 1 position. You have companines moving jobs to other states or companies, because it is to expensive to keep a company in California. Look at the whole situation before you write your hatred to those on unemployment.

Maybe we should just pay them to stay home and not look for a job.

Let's just pay people's salaries or benefits for three, four years.

The problem is that many of these unemployed will not take something lower paying. They are sucking their benefits dry and have just stopped looking.

Thank Democrats for this.

Many of "these unemployed" are applying for anything and everything they can only to be told that they are over-educated or over-qualified. Have a college degree? Don't bother to apply at Raley's, McDonald's or Kmart. If you're overqualified, they won't hire you.
My mother has been looking for nearly a year. She's had at least an interview a week in her chosen field and has been told numerous times that she was one of the final two, but chose the person who already worked within the district. She's also pounded the pavement and applied at retail stores, restaurants, grocery stores and even with a house cleaning company. You know what one of those retail stores told her? "With your education, you have some nerve applying for a job like this. There are people out there with no education who need these jobs, not you."
No food on the table is no food on the table, folks. And believe me, my mom would much rather be working than taking an unemployment check.

Fool, that money will have to be borrowed from China and will be tacked right on to the National Debt. All the Republicans wanted to do was force the dems to cut back on spending enough to pay for these benefits without having to borrow from China.

You live in a false sense of security, that extension buys time till November 30th. What happens to the unemployed then ? As the unemployed move closer to exhausting the 99 weeks and come off the rolls what then? Will they be any less unemployed? Seriously doubt that. They unemployment rate is projected to be at 10% By the Mid-Term election and it will grow into 2011. Vice President Biden has been interviewed stating that the jobs lost will not be recovered. It continues to be that the current administration isn't doing the job that was promised , in fact it's the opposit. Why after a State of the Union message the President Obama gave in which he stated "I get it ..It's JOBS JOBS JOBS !" We get HEALTHCARE !..WTF?..It's obivious that our President isn't focused on the needs of the people who elected him. The real question should be ..."WHERE ARE THE JOBS MR.PRESIDENT"?

If they run out of unemployment benefits they will go on public assistance, protected by the wonderful safety nets that were established by Democrats many years ago! Without healthcare, people could become sick and unable to work. How the hell do you expect any President to create private sector jobs when companies have outsourced the work, and shifted most of their manufacturing overseas??

Well, there are estimated to be about 10 million plus illegals currently holding private sector jobs that unemployed American citizens would like to have. Maybe if the marxist/socialist progressive democrats CURRENTLY controlling Congress would actually secure the border and quit kissing hispanic azz for votes and trying to amnesty illegal alien future democratic voters if amnestied and start kicking out on a grand scale any and all illegal aliens illegally holding American jobs our unemployed Americans could get those jobs and go back to work paying taxes again.
