As George Wanker Bush pushes to keep his streak alive for tanking every business he's ever run, there comes this rosy news:
The demand for unemployment benefits across the country has put a strain on state unemployment funds, with such funds in at least 10 states facing insolvency in 2009, according to a policy group.That can't be good news. Rising unemployment and no unemployment benefits?
Nationwide, unemployment reached 6.1 percent, or roughly 9.1 million people, in August, up from 4.7 percent in 2007, and is expected to continue rising. The U.S. Department of Labor said that in August, claims for unemployment benefits reached their highest levels since 2001.
Way to go Wanker.
