Unemployment benefits ending for some Ohioans

Published: Tue, March 2, 2010 @ 4:32 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Unemployed Ohioans are beginning to lose their jobless benefits because of a stalemate in Congress.

Republican Sen. Jim Bunning of Kentucky today again blocked the Senate from extending the benefits to Americans, saying it would add $10 billion to the budget deficit.

As a result, people who exhausted their benefits Saturday can’t seek an extension.

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says even if Congress later acts to restore the measures, thousands of Ohioans will see a lapse in benefits, beginning with 20,000 people this week and about 24,000 each week after that.

About 432,000 people receive unemployment benefits in Ohio, which has an unemployment rate of 10.9 percent.

Good for Sen. Bunning. They have the damn money, but are too sneaky to use it, so instead congress draws up bills that don't have a funding source....use some Stimulus money in fact. Pay-Go is the order and this is how pay-go works....All spending must have a source that does not raise the national debt. Not saying I agree with that but I do agree with the Senator following the rules.

You've gotta be kiddin,..

This latest batmite stunt by bug eyed backlash Bunning was an obstructionist act that he was selected to pull.

Because he's that vindictive and he's not running for re-election either. Which is due to him knowing his posh gig of being paid to fleece Kentuckians is over,..

For that intolerable ingrate to pull that obstructionist stunt for his faction of failed radicals. Is a profound sign of just how worthless he's always been.

The ploy was enacted as a parting shot of inconvenience to be cast upon those that finally figured him out,.. and they'll pay for it in the forthcoming elections too.

His conspiring friends will be made to thank him for the voters showing their appreciation at the polls,.. guaranteed.
