I know with all the oil spill problems, the lack of the United States Senate to act on extending the unemployment benefits for workers seems like a trivial problem but try being in my shoes and wondering how to pay the bills!!! The political bull, that is at a all time high in Washington, can sometimes make your head explode. I don’t care if you’re on the left or right. I don’t care what the republicans or democrats like or dislike about each other. HELLO, laid-off workers need help. It’s not like we are asking for a hand-out. We have worked for many years to be able to draw an unemployment check. AND, by the way, we also pay taxes on the unemployment checks. That means your paycheck, Mr. Voinovich and Mr. Brown (senators for Ohio). How are we supposed to magically find a job? Where are they at? I am, at this point, just trying to finish my schooling so that I can get a better job (out of a factory). Hopefully, the politicians will get off their….behinds…and do something to help the people of the United States!
