Unemployment Benefits To Start Flowing Again, But Congress Left Some Economic Help Undone
By: Scott Nance
July 23rd, 2010 @ 8:40 pm

Although unemployment benefits will once again start flowing to millions of jobless Americans, Congress failed to follow through on crucial pieces of their plans to aid the ailing economy.

President Obama Thursday signed hard-fought legislation Thursday that extends the emergency unemployment compensation, or EUC, program and full federal funding of state extended benefits through November 27. Because the law is retroactive, eligible claimants now may be paid for weeks of unemployment after the previous law expired on June 5.

Millions of out-of-work Americans ha

  • One more time.I'll go slow for you.Republicans are a
    numerical minority.They can't block ANYTHING.They do
    not have enough votes to block Anything.All democrats
    have to do,is get enough of THEIR party to vote in
    favor of a bill,and it's smooth sailing for them.The
    problem is that enough democrats oppose the bill,that
    it will not pass.Cheers.

  • Jobless benefits for more than 2 years (let alone six months) just encourages people to stay unemployed. Everyone I know personally, and see on the news who falls into this category is either: 1) lazy and isn't looking for work, 2) thinks its "beneath" them to settle for anything but a 100k job, or 3) is working under the table and milking unemployment. The reason why unemployment is so high is because Obama, Pelosi, and fellow members of the far left won't stop extending jobless bene More..

  • I guess I don't understand the point of this post.
    Unemployment extension was passed after dems removed the stuff republicans didn't want.
    Now they say they do want it but vote against it?
    Where does the "shameless debauchery" come in?
    Does the poster even know what those words mean?
    What the hell was this post trying to say?
