    When unemployment “insurance” stops being covered by employee and employer pay in and starts being covered by taxes it is no longer insurance. It is welfare by another name.
    After 26 weeks put the person on welfare and call it what it is. The Democrats don’t want to do that because their demands for endless welfare in the past have given welfare a horribly bad connotation. So, now they want to smear unemployment insurance by turning it into secret welfare like they did with the Earned Income Credit.

    Or a major illness that ends or limits your ability to work?

    The big problem with this comic strip is that statistics demonstrate that most people, who really want and need a job, actually do get a job when their unemployment expires. I have known LOTS of people who have deliberately milked their unemployment time as a sort of vacation/sabbatical. The problem is more an unwillingness on the part of the unemployed to try a different job, learn new skills, or be willing to take a significant pay cut. In my own life, I have taken significant pay cuts a few times and then continued to job hunt for a proper paying job but I know many who have been on the unemployment roles who can’t seem to make such a mental leap UNTIL they are forced to do so (by unemployment running out or other situations.)

    …The republicans have rigged…er…gerrrymandered congressional districts so that so that minority party districts are now thinly sliced into majority ones.This process only claims incumbents that dare to not be deemed republican enough.They eat their own,but there is no longer any chance for true personal thoughts or beliefs to enter into the system.The party is run by the few secret shadow puppets and political power is quitely leaving the people as their voice is gagged easily in this rigged system.One by one,this Smaug like dragon of political condensing will knock off democratic after democratic senate seat.Soon,in a Star Wars style takeover FOX News will announce that senators will no longer be elected by the people,than the house will be seated by the chosen few,and the majority of people will clamor for it…thus my over reaching troll like point…Rand Paul will seem like a true American libertarian and because of this,his political point of view will seem too liberal,and they will chop off his head…Happy New Year everyone…

    “When unemployment “insurance” stops being covered by employee and employer pay in and starts being covered by taxes it is no longer insurance. It is welfare by another name.”

    IF that’s true, it is truly despicable. However, it’s not terribly surprising in this political climate, is it? Yet another gift to industry. They have no obligations whatever, except to skim the economy, and strip it bare. It’s a trend. As long as corporate industry or a special interest benefits, it must be good.

    “And by definition, welfare programs are supported by extorting hard earned wages from the dwindling number of taxpaying folks and giving their money to those who refuse to work or to take responsibility for themselves.”

    Really ..?

    How would you employ those infants? Oh, wait – we have anti child labor laws. Well, what they hay, eh? Need to reduce the population somehow, just let them die.

    What about your old granny, immobilized in a wheelchair, incontinent … skilled, yes … would you hire her ..?

    How about those vets returned from foreign wars ..? Oh … yeah, they’ve already been thrown under the bus. No need to support them – or their families.

    I’ll tell you what ‘extortion’ is. Extortion is forcing people to buy an industrial product they can’t afford by law – say, ‘health insurance’ – which then declines to meet the obligation of their policy. The result of this is paying money to ‘insure’ you may be treated, not being treated by the policy you are forced by government law to purchase … so now you have no hope whatever of purchasing that medication your doctors agree that you need. Multiple doctors, yes.

    That is extortion .
