“My benefits have been exhausted for over 12 weeks now, zero income, I lost my car to pay bills, yet those fat cats on capital hill say the 99 ers are lazy , WTF, I must say I lived large on 185.00 per week, are they kidden, I want to work, I have searched endlessly, where are the jobs, there are none, I never thought I see the day when my frig was barren, and My electicity is being cut in two days, never. The shelters are at the maximum, as well as food pantrys being low on donations, I had heard the sucide hot lines are at a all time high, and its not even the holidays.

“Carol, please do not give up. I wish I had an answer for you. There are a lot of us that have not forgotten the 99'ers.
I hope that you have family that you can turn to. My thoughs and prayers are with you, friend.”
“I have exhausted all of my unemployment benefits, I have searched endlessly for work, Presently I have been at Zero income for 11 weeks, I have never in my life thought I 'd see the day, when I actually had no food in frig, or the day my electricity is getting cut which is tommorow, Yet those fat cats in Washinginton sit back and have the nerve to say, the 99ers are getting comfortable with unemployment, I say WTF you have to be living under a rock, I received 185.00 per week, oh yes I was living large, I didn't ask to be laid off, and now we are being punished for the mistakes of the over indulgent Fat Cats. I am talking about millions of people with no income, no jobs, this is a DEPRESSION, only bad will come from it, The crime rate has been going up, the sucide hot lines are overwhelmed, as well as shelters being filled,and food pantrys are having a hard time keping up, We are DROWNING OUT HERE . S.O.S. Carol in Ct”

“Looks like you still have internet connection...
“Talk about ABUSE OF POWER, are these IDIOTS for real. Yes I am living the life of luxury with my $185.00 a week payment from unemployment as homes are being foreclosed, familys destroyed. The food pantrys can't keep up with the demand of new families on there program,, many are the very same familys receiving food when just 2 years ago they where donating to them, Yes the thought of me reading by candlight is a little tempting. PLEASE GET RID OF THESE IDIOTS , to think they represent us, to think they could possible know what is like to be without, and constant worry.
