President Biden and DC Democrats seem to want to keep subsidizing unemployment forever, or at least through September 6th, but many states are sick of it. Sunday, nine more states (Alabama, Alaska, Idaho, Indiana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, West Virginia and Wyoming) will join Iowa, Mississippi and Missouri in cutting off the extra $300 a week in pandemic unemployment benefits.

With the pandemic ending and businesses reopening, 9.3 million jobs were created in April. But many employers say they can’t get people to apply because they’re currently paid more to stay home than to take an entry level job. The benefits are especially lavish in blue states. For instance, in Massachusetts, someone on unemployment can make up to $1,155 a week, or the equivalent of $60,060 a year for not working, plus state-paid food and medical support. Why accept a job and take a pay cut?

Biden insists that there’s no connection between these payments and continuing unemployment despite plenty of job openings, and Democrats claim there are still many people who can’t find a job and need the support. But we’ll soon know for sure, thanks to the laboratory of the states. By the end of July, more than half the nation (26 states) will have ended the bonus pay. Only one of those states has a Democrat Governor (Louisiana.)

By comparing the red and blue states, we’ll soon know whether unemployment remains higher in states that subsidize it. And if we see a sudden exodus of people moving from red to blue states, we can be pretty certain that’s the only reason.

Note to anyone seeking to extend unemployment: don’t move to California because even they’re tired of people taking money and not even looking for work.

    The Democrats want to control everything in this country by paying people to stay home. This not only creates more and more debt that the American people will have to pay off, but it creates personal problems for those who end up with a lack of self-worth because they won't work. People are meant to work to provide for their families and to provide a sense of accomplishment.

    They are getting more on unemployment than I get with my retirement and job combined

    Governor Huckabee:

    My husband and I are conservative Christians who live in flyover country. Our children live in Baltimore and NYC, in the leftist bubble. We also have a grandson in Baltimore.

    Our own children have canceled us for our politics. They did not even call my husband yesterday for Father's Day. They didn't call me for Mother's Day. We can't see our grandson.

    Would you please pray for us? The Lord gave me Jeremiah 31:17 in the middle of the night. (Verse 16 is good too.) Could you please pray that the Lord would bring our children back from the land of the enemy and to their own border? We are standing on that promise.

    Thank you,
    Caren

    These people don't like to work. My husband would go crazy if He could work!

    Yes, LA governor, John Bel Edwards, is the exception to the rule for a Democrat governor. He’s a pragmatist and a good thinker.

    I thought Asa agreed to halt that in AR also.

    I agree with most of this but then there are the long haulers, like me. I'm widowed, and I got covid19 from working in a hospital. I've been off so long because of what it did to my lungs. When my work got a letter from my lung Dr telling them it was going to be months before I'm better because lungs don't heal that fast, so they let me go. Regular unemployment doesn't come close to what I was making. I just want to take care of myself and survive.

    I cannot believe that amount in MA! I need to retire at Belk in NC and move to MA for the next 2 years while this insanity continues. I`ll build up a nice nest egg!
