I SENT THIS TODAY AFTER A LONG DAY LOOKING FOR WORK..
QUIT BEING WASHINGTON
I am writing to you about a problem that I have with decisions being made at your level in government. The United States of America gave The 50 States a plan to help not only your state of North Carolina but most important the people that pay your salary and your peers salary. The United States of America gave you a formula to calculate if your state of North Carolina is in need of this plan. I suppose by now You want to know what this plan is. Well I really do not think you do. I am going to give you my definition in abbreviated and long form at the end of this letter.
I see stories coming out of there in North Carolina like: 1.) Greg and Elizabeth Rain Georgaras, two of the 37,000 North Carolinians cut off from their employment benefits four weeks ago, can no longer afford to keep their two young children with them.
It recently fell to family to take in Roger, 3, and Victoria, 2, while the Concord couple keeps looking for work and hope that their unemployment benefits are restored soon.
“They’re no longer with me,” Greg said. “I just couldn’t keep them in these types of surroundings, not having food and the electricity about to be cut off.
This scenario hurts and this should not be tolerated this happened about 4 weeks ago where there employment benefits were cut off. Just think there are going to be more and more horror stories like this. Just think there are other things to worry about also with like Tornado's there are people there that were unemployed and do not have a pot to **** in then and really have nothing now and are in a daze.
I am asking you Thom to step up to the plate and be a man configure your state (which this program should have been followed more closely from the beginning) to meet the EXTENDED BENEFIT PROGRAM From the United States of America. If you look at the numbers or the unemployment rate for the month of APRIL it has gone to 10.01999%
Your peers are making a big game out of this and it should not be attaching this to another bill. Stand Alone only.. If you wanted some points you should have attached it to the "North Carolina is a NASCAR State" Well act like it and get moving FAST AND FURIOUS AND BEAT THEM TO THE FINISH LINE.
PASS THE EXTENDED BENEFIT PROGRAM FOR WHICH YOUR PEOPLE OF YOUR STATE ARE ENTITLED TOO FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA........
The people only live once and North Carolina will be here more so after them....The people are the future Thom and you are suppose to be for them....
