They don't want to KILL it, they want to modify it - a flat amount of about $200 or a proportion that would give the unemployed employees about 70% of their regular pay.

Normally, the SAME % of regular pay is applicable to all unemployment benefits.  The % is set by the state.  With this extra $ 600 per week which was allotted, some people got up to say, 70% & other reaped 110%.

 

Wealthy ? Are you saying that a person that is fortunate enough to have a higher pay should not get a comparable unemployment benefit?  The regular benefit for everybody is in proportion to the amount that the employer pays into the State (SUTA) and the FEDS (FUTA).

You do realize that it is not all unemployment that has expired - only the Fed extra amount - they still get their regular unemployment benefit. 

 

To make a bit extra, mow some grass or something else.


Why? .... The wealthy need do nothing "to make a whole lot extra" in Republican handouts!

 

That same benefit should be extended to ALL non wealthy Americans instead of telling them to "mow some grass"!

 

 

DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!

The major part expired. That was the part that kept the economy functioning better than most thought it would. That part of the program worked, and that is why the far right wants to kill it.

Because the Senate has failed in reaching an agreement on the Unemployment benefits and continues to actually think that people will not work if they have unemployment. 
We will see families being evicted of their apts, and homes, we will see people not having an income and being hungry and not having the bare necessities for for their families, and then
They will go out into the streets in desperation and not knowing what to do. Expect people rioting and what worries me the most is the reaction of Trump. we will see soldiers in the streets trying to deal with the rioters killing many of them and then He will blame the Congress for not delaying the elections like he wants to happen.

You are all in for what you have seen many times in Latin America  and this time it will happen here.
