Unemployment benefits expired for many
Time has run out for those who have been receiving unemployment benefits for 99 weeks

TERRE HAUTE, Ind- Time has run out for those who have been receiving unemployment benefits for 99 weeks.

"They shouldn't have expired it. They should have extended it," drawing unemployment Dale Miller said.

It is also a decision many have mixed emotions on, but say the line has to be drawn somewhere.

"I think you have people looking for work, they need to be taken care of but the ones that are just free loading off the system, I have concerns about that," taxpayer John Harpold said.

"I really think it is sad for the people who can't find a job cause of their skills. But some of these people like you said don't go out and hunt they just draw the money," taxpayer Terry Jordan said.

More help could be on the way for the unemployed. Republicans want to extend the current income tax rates for everyone. Democrats are hesitant but are offering a compromise. They will support the tax rates if Republicans help extend unemployment.

If approved, the extension will provide roughly five extra months of benefits. Congress has 11 days to make a decision.

Deal allows extended jobless aid through 2011

President Barack Obama on Monday announced a compromise on the Bush tax cuts that will allow jobless workers to get up to 99 weeks of extended unemployment benefits through 2011.

The deal still must be approved by Congress, but the tax compromise appears to have offset opposition to continued unemployment benefits. Under the compromise, extended unemployment benefits will be reinstated this month and continued through December 2011.

News of the deal comes that showed unemployment nationwide rising to 9.8%, the highest since April.  The unemployment rate now has topped 9% for 19 months, the longest since World War II.

California Employment Development officials estimated that as many as 454,000 jobless workers in the state would lose their unemployment benefits by the end of the year if aid was not restored. A total of 2 million nationwide could have been cut from the unemployment rolls.

Although the deal offers extended aid to those who have run out their 26 weeks of state unemployment benefits, there is no relief for the so-called 99ers who have exhausted the maximum 99 weeks of benefits.

EDD officials were not immediately available to explain about when and how the catch-up extension checks would be handled.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
