They say jobless claims fell this month. They aren't counting the 5 million people who have exhausted their benefits, the 99ers! My benefits ran out in March of 2010. I have been out of work for more than 2 years. I have resumes out there from Washington state to St. Louis, Mo. I don't know why I can't find a job. I was in management before I lost my job. I have always worked, at least for the last 43 years. I've exhausted all my savings and on the 25 of this month they are turning off ALL of my utilities. I don't know how I'm going to make it with no electricity or water, the phone I can get along without. I don't understand how Washington is more concerned about the election in November, than they are about the people out here who have run out of options. They should be doing everything they possibly can to create more jobs, and to help those of us who have no more options at this point. They are so worried about the rich, but as long as things are like they are the rich is not going to take a chance on loosing any of their wealth, so they will hang on to their money and that won't help the economy. The deficate may be big, but maybe 2 years from now none of us will be here. You know what God said about greed? Washington, the President, the House and the Senate need to worry about the here and now, not what will be 1, 2, 5, or 10 years from now. Suicides and crimes are up simply because people just don't know what to do to get their lives back to normal. That's all I've go to say, except, Mr President and Congress please help us!!!!!!!
