But, voting in lockstep, the Republican Senators blocked the funding of these extended benefits as of last week. So last Tuesday, I received my last Unemployment payment, unless and until the Democratic majority manages to outvote the Republican minority, and re-instate the benefit. On Tuesday -- Monday's a Holiday -- I will be calling the Massachusetts Department of Workforce Development, Division of Unemployment Insurance, to see if the State will re-extend the benefits I had to give up in order to get that Federal "Extension," which has, thanks to the perfidy of the Republican party, unwilling to even mitigate the disaster it caused, shortened my benefits.
So, thank you, you asshole Republican shitbags. I don't know if I'll be able to continue to afford electricity. My wife's talking about selling my car. Thanks.
