    Here's an interesting little article regarding attempts to get financial relief to out-of-work folk whose unemployment insurance has terminated, and why some states are refusing this federal aide:

    States turn down federal money for jobless benefits

    ... But the study describes the cost to the states as "minimal," noting that the nine states still abstaining from the program collectively have directed an average of just 2.7 percent of all regular state benefits to out-of-work government employees. The costs of such outlays are far outweighed by the stimulative effect that the program at large would create for hard-up state economies, NELP argues. Economists at the liberal Economic Policy Institute and the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities say their research bears that out.

    Govt should to make policies for both things politics and poverty because these both are important for any country. If political system is not good then country cannot get progress rapidly.
