Is the Federal Government the Problem? Or the Solution?

25 state unemployment insurance funds have gone broke and the Department of Labor estimates that 15 more state unemployment funds will likely go broke within two years and will need massive loans from the federal government just to keep going. Won't they always need the Federal Government to help?

  • Plain and simple the Federal Government is the problem. Get away from it and watch what happens! Everyone will be better off than they are right now. Let the states govern there selves. Enough said!

  • They are always in the position to be part of the solution; however, as we stand, it is a major part of the problem. It needs to back off, regroup, reassess, and work with the citizens to improve the problems (which weren't that bad until it took this path). Together we can fix things, but the government doesn't need to treat the citizens as the problem.

  • Ummm, it's the federal government adding to the length of time you can get unemployment. I'd say it is pretty evident whose fault it is.
    Some of the State governments get part of the blame too because of how they run their state. Most were having trouble before the recession. Now it's only gotten worse.
