Tax cut extension to impact benefits

SACRAMENTO (CBS) — Extended unemployment benefits began running out on Saturday for 185,000 people in California.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports

Through December, up to 410,000 people here will stop getting checks without the the federal money which is included in the proposed deal to extend the Bush-era tax cuts.

If Congress passes legislation before year’s end, those whose benefits expire before then would likely receive payments retroactively.

    For those of you yelling “get a job you lazy bums!!”, I’m 33 years old, and have worked my ass of since college graduation. I paid an average of $800 a week in taxes taken out of my paycheck. I’m in a tough spot now and can’t find work since early 2010. If an illegal alien is entitled to free health care thanks to my dollar, i’m entitled to some unemployment monetary aid. I’ve got an idea, it’s a CRAZY!! one, let’s start taking care of tax payers, before taking care of invaders.

  3. Not everyone’s being lazy about unemployment. I’ve been busting my butt looking for work…and making the unemployed LOL. Here, check it out:
