    "people who are waiting and waiting to find a job still get the important check that they deserve.”

    They deserve? So in other words the world owes them a living and they should wait for somebody to come to their door with a job. Typical Democrat way of thinking!

    P.S. The EMPLOYER pays ALL of the unemployment contributions.

    Jobless benefits.....what the fuck about joblessness you idiot. (Reid)
    And here you see why the Dems spent their super majority passing a catastrophic healthcare bill that does not address the problem and has caused more people to lose insurance than gain it.

    If you were in their situation as to being unemployed and having a hard time finding a job, you might learn something called empathy.

    It is hard to find a job because there are none. Jobs should be the first priority.

    I've been out of work since January 2012.

    I worked 4 months in 2012 and 4 months this year.

    Things seem to be picking up and I need a few more months of extended benefits before I get a long term position.

    Spoken like a true Dim. Priority is more government handouts, instead of jobs that get people off the handouts in the first place and in control of their own lives.

    He needs to speak to another genuis in his party, Joe Biden, who has been busy working to provide that THREE letter word J-O-B-S.

    If they are in control of their own lives then they won't need Harry.

    I've been out of work since june of 1987. I never got a dime of unemployment benefits. What I did get was job/career/work benefits....called military retirement. Career selection/preparation/planning is key.


    blind luck helps also....

    This is another example of group favortism by the democraps.

    The democraps look at people who need jobless benefits as yet another group of "useful idiots" that they can try and secure more votes from for the democraps.

    That is why the corrupt Harry Reid wants to make jobless benefits a top priority in 2014, because the mid-term elections are later that year.

    I highly doubt that.

    Go ahead and keep voting for so-called liberals. They're so good with fostering a bustling economic environment... :eusa_whistle:

    The fact that jobless benefits needs is a top priority going back each year since 2008 is a failure of economic policy. What policies is Reid going to pursue so that people don't have to wait and wait?
