667,534 actually filed claims last week. Government lied AGAIN! The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs totaled 667,534 in the week ending July 11 ETA Press Release: Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims Report You either have 667,534 actual claims filed, or you don't. You can not claim that many of them do not exist because traditionally people do not file that many claims for unemployment at this time of year. Total Insanity!
