Businesses were wiped out during the Great Recession and millions of people lost their jobs...so the Republican solution is to make unemployment insurance harder to get? jsonline:
- Tighten the definition of workplace misconduct so that fewer people would qualify for benefits.Republicans are also proposing an amazing misuse of general taxpayer money to pay into the unemployment insurance fund, instead of businesses. Do Republican voters even know about this?
-Eliminate nine instances in which a worker can quit a job and still claim benefits.
And then to loan the unemployment fund another $50 million from taxpayers to show a positive balance and trick the government into not raising taxes on business, is nothing short of crooked.
