    Let’s let struggling families benefits run out, while extending tax cuts for the wealthy, and spending $720 billion on the military. Sounds like a great plan. If the GOP wants these extensions funded, then there are two places to start looking. Although they had no problem passing medicare part D, unfunded.

    My unemployment benefits ran out in March. I didn’t qualify for the extension signed over the summer, because I was over the 99 weeks by 5 weeks. I’ve been sending out my resume like a madwoman since. Very few interviews, no offers.
    Its been an incredible struggle.

      I have a solution for you and everyone losing benefits. Take control of your future. Take a look at this 23-year-old company that is listed on the Nasdaq. Incredible compensation plan and support system. Contact me if you’d like to learn more.

    Should have been doing it all along. I know people making more money on unemployment with cash jobs that dont want to go back to work.
    Such a scam.
    You can get a job if you want to work
