Unemployed Turmoil

Today they tell me
   I no longer have money--
      Congress, why is this?

A. Green

Workers all over the country who have been 
laid off are no longer receiving benefits. Guess
they want us to starve.

    Ms. Amy Green, I love this topic. I haven't recieved a paycheck since 08. I watched them give the banks 700 mill. in 90 mins. Watched Haiti cave. In hours we are there feeding them giving out cell phones. They got the money to do these extraordinary things and simply forgot about the people who made these things possible. I'm waiting since 1-4-09 to get a piece of my own pie. That's why i say they may have trapped my body, but I freed my mind. They obviously aren't on my side...

    It has affected me too Amy.. first time collecting UC benefits for only three months and poof.. they say they are over budget.. Congress needs to get a grip and start cutting spending at the White House not with the ordinary American citizen.. all the years working I never said I did not have enough for them to take from my check this week ..that I needed ALL my cash.. fight the system.. who can?? can we? always ready my friend.. luv..
