HP why do you have repeat ews all the time? Get off your butts and go out and find us a freaking story you havent told already!! This is borning me.
if you make money you are an evil individual however if you don't work and receive money then you're a good person...that seems to be today's attitude.
Is the following a joke?: "At its 2010 peak, the country paid out $150 billion in unemployment benefits, according to the Congressional Budget Office. And $29.9 million of that went to millionaires"So $30 Million out of $150 BILLION? Seriously? In other words, there is no problem, and millionaires are getting essentially no unemployment benefits, relatively speaking. Of course that would make for a boring, albeit honest, headline.
Money controls all
Actually your mind controls all, and your mind is perhaps wrapped up in envy or self-pity.
They should be able to get the benefits if they are entitled. Maybe they will just give more to charity.
Yea, THAT'S gonna happen! lol
If you pay into the system, you should be able to draw from the system, PERIOD. You hear idiots talking about millionaires drawing social security when time and that they shouldn't be able to, I say BS. Again, they paid into it and now they're paying really BIG. If no one wants them to draw from a system, then they shouldn't have to pay into that system. The problem I have is those that have never paid a dime into ANY system but draw off of all of them & I'm not talking about children. Those are the ones that upset me.
Hi David, I agree with you. Ask California school teachers who lost most of their Social Security benefits how it feels to have the government decide you that you are a double dipper and will not receive all of your Social Security benefits.
Ask an old railroad worker who paid into the railroad retirement fund, held a second job and paid Social Security - and when he passed away before drawing on either one, his widow could collect only one or the other - Not allowed to collect two government checks - and one wasn't raised to compensate either- And because she wasn't 62 yet - she couldn't collect any compensation until then - Had to go to work - and by the time she could retire - she didn't live long enough to collect but for one year. That sucks.
Misleading and abusive title. Government Aid Abuse? Hardly. These people are entitled collect. Why not more articles about welfare and entitlement *fraud*? Oh right. That might make O's supporters look bad. We can't have that, can we?
this is not abuse, unemploymet insurance is insurance not welfare. if a wealthy person got into an automobile accident and filed a claim with their insurance company would that be abuse? No, the articel clearly points out that this is not abuse.
How is it, the wealthy are ABUSING govt aid, if the law allows them to receive said aid---LEAGALLYIf you do not like how the laws are, you need to work to change the laws---through legal channels----eg----like the House and SenateStop your whining----whine whine whine-------------you might try putting the effort used for whining into wokring at changeing the lawOH---there is that BAD word---WORK
