If the average payout is around $300 then the withholding of that from 37,000 equals $11,100,000 per week kept out of the state economy. Multiplied by 4 weeks...... Don't these pols realize they are hurting the economy because we can't pay our bills? sheeesh

Didn't Nesbitt make some remark about the legislators holding this up were going to feel some heat from people in their district?

I thought maybe he was plotting with some of them . . .

Well it seems this will be my last post. As of tomarrow I'm homeless. I just want you all to keep up the effort, and lets hope that this will get fixed, so those with kids won't end up in the same boat I am in.

Good luck all.

WRAL hammering the government pretty good. This is dispicable what these legislators are doing and they need to be called out for it. Totally ridiculous.
