The millionaire tax is the political version of two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. As 100% of the people if 2% ought to pay more and a good majority of the self-centered 98% will vote "heck yeah...it doesn't affect me". A good example of why we have representative government and not a true democracy.

Mo. Lawmakers pass bill limiting jobless benefits

1 year ago businessweek.com

Amount of time to claim benefits would depend on how many were looking for work

From businessweek.com:

The amount of time Missouri workers could claim unemployment benefits after losing a job would depend upon how many others also are looking for work, according to a measure given final legislative approval Wednesday.

Missouri residents currently can collect unemployment benefits for up to 20 weeks. Under the legislation, jobless benefits could be claimed for 20 weeks only when the state's average unemployment rate is at least 9 percent. The maximum duration of jobless benefits would decrease one week for each one-half percentage point drop in the unemployment rate, and bottom out at 13 weeks when the state's jobless rate is less than 6 percent.

The bill could make Missouri's jobless benefits timespan one of the shortest in the nation. Florida and North Carolina both have linked the duration of jobless benefits to the unemployment rate with the potential for their payments to halt after 12 weeks.

Missouri Rep. Jay Barnes said the measure brings more rationality to Missouri's unemployment system.
