  • Emergency Aid? Haven't some people been on UE for like more than 18 months? Our country can't afford this UE is not a right or an Entitlement it is PA and you should not be on it for years. All the petitions in the world are not going to help your cause.

  • No - our country can't afford it, and we don't need to keep borrowing more money. I don't know what the solution is, but it's not getting our country in more debt!

  • No, that money should be going to our schools! I'd work at the darn McDonalds before I got on UE!
