However, if you are one of the couple of hundred thousand who is being immediately denied these funds, you are not one of them.
A comment left on EconomyBeat:
While I certainly agree with the statements about him standing his ground and there are several issues that this should be done on. But I am one of the many still unemployed (almost 2 yrs now), my EUI benefits just ran out. I was barely making it on my UE, have had no insurance, have a 7yr old–what am I going to do now??? There are many more out there like me as well.
And an angry and profane rant on Craigslist Detroit:
BILLIONS UPON BILLIONS OF HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR A F**** SO CALLED “WAR” IN AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ? HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HOUSE CRIMINALS? HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HAITI? BILLIONS TO AFRICA AND ISRAEL? BUT NO UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSIONS? F*** JIM BUNNING!
Do you really think I like not having a job? I get about $250 f*** dollars after my bastard government taxes my unemployment check. Wow, that really goes far. I didn’t create this mess. We’re not making this mess up, it’s really happening and this country is so f*** up and has been it’s not even funny anymore. I NEED unemployment benefits and I need them until I can find a job that will help me pay my bills, make my house payment and put food on my table and clothes on my back.
This isn’t funny. There ARE NO JOBS here in Michigan, and very few anywhere else in the country.
Lets give BILLIONS to f**** MILLIONAIRES, bailing out the auto industry, banks, mortgage companies, insurance companies….but lets just f*** the middle class and lower class citizens…
WHAT A F**** BUNCH OF BULLSHIT……THIS COUNTRY AND THE GOVERNMENT SERIOUSLY NEEDS TO BE OVERTHROWN. A REVOLT IS ON THE WAY, A REVOLUTION MUST BE UNDERTAKEN…..
THROW THESE M*****F**** BLOOD SUCKING BASTARDS OUT OF OFFICE! ESPECIALLY BUNNING…..
he wants to make sure we find a way to pay for unemployment? PLEASE, GIVE ME A F**** BREAK…..why doesn’t Congress and the Senate and our f*** up President figure out a way how my daughters’ kids are going to pay for EVERYTHING THEY’VE DONE TO RUIN THIS COUNTRY OVER THE LAST YEAR!
EVERY POLITICIAN F**** SUCKS!
And from a personal blog:
Here is my letter to (Jim Bunning’s) office:
I have been working ever since I was fourteen years old paying into a system that I knew that would never pay me a dime. I am responsible with my money, pay my bills on time, and have been able to survive a massive stroke so that I can live like a normal person.
Living like a normal person became a pipe dream three years ago when the first of three lay-offs happened to me. There hasn’t been a year that I have not been unemployed since 2007. I have worked really hard to survive. I have lucked out with occasional contract work here and there.
Sadly, all my hard work and struggles have been ignored by you. My unemployment benefits have run out. I’m in danger of being evicted. I cannot live the healthy independent lifestyle that I aspired to once I was released from the hospital thanks to you.
Please open your eyes to the suffering that your political stance has caused millions.
