Furloughed federal employees in N.H. should seek unemployment benefits

Federal employees who have been furloughed due to the government shutdown can and should apply for unemployment benefits, New Hampshire officials said yesterday.

“The federal government shutdown is causing unnecessary hardship to New Hampshire families,” Gov. Maggie Hassan said in a statement. “The federal employees who have been furloughed make critical contributions to our economy, and it is important we provide support to those workers as they struggle through the shutdown.”

As of 2012, there were 4,165 federal employees working in New Hampshire – not including the U.S. Postal Service, which isn’t affected by the shutdown that began 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, said Dianne Carpenter, unemployment compensation bureau director at New Hampshire Employment Security.

It’s not clear how many of those workers have been sent home without pay in New Hampshire. Across the country, an estimated 800,000 or more federal workers are being furloughed due to the shutdown.

She's a good little True Believer.

Did she ever read this quote:



"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.

"Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.

"America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."



~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

This shutdown cost New Hampshire dearly.

So, would you prefer Gov. Maggie Hasan (D) over Wisconsin's Gov. Scott Walker (R)Walker, who opened up all the "parks closed by The Feds"?
