    Good Morning
    I have a question for you. About the unemployed. What about the middle age 99ers? What happens to us? Why is Obama and the congress dissing us? I feel that Obama hates us I have been told that he is trying to help us, but in my mind he is not. I have been unemployed for over a year. I can not get a job I applied for any and everything, but as soon as i apply, somebody gets it. Can not get help with rent or food what happens when we starve. You have helped with younger, elderly people with children, but what the middle age with out kids? YOU OR OBAMA HAVE LEFT OUT OF THE COLD. Send this to Obama. I feel like he does not care

    What a shame. The most evil country in the history of the world having a piece of good news. I have however many ideas on destroying the United States economy. One of the best is simply calling in several false alarms at major shopping malls. The fire departments wil be rquired to investigate. As a result the stores wil empty and customers wil decide not to waste their time. In short death to america and the sooner the better

    I just did a google search on "Mike Steinbach" and "United States most evil country in the world." Seems like a troubled soul needs some mental help.

    Those that are the most unemployable get ignored. These are people in their 50's, 60's and anyone with a record. No one will hire them. My son has applied for at least 500 jobs in the past 2 years and cannot get a job. Now, his children won't get child support which was $560 dollars a month and came out of his unemployment check. Hundreds of thousands of middle age people who are being ignored all so the rich can pay less taxes. People on social security weren't included on this plan either. No $250 check for them because the rich have to keep their tax cuts.
