Letters: The jobless lament

November 25, 2012

Re "Buying time for the jobless," Editorial, Nov. 20

After losing my job through no fault of my own, I never blamed my situation on any party other than the company that downsized me. Searching for meaningful work after many years of making a fair living is stunning; it affects your sense of worth. Financially, it's devastating.

Meanwhile, Congress (and especially the Republicans) seems intent on taking away even the most basic protections. After losing a tough presidential race, I hope many Republicans now see that obstructionism didn't work and that they should take a more compassionate approach to helping the middle class.

That being said, if the Republican-controlled House sticks it to me and millions of others, my goal moving forward will be to make them feel the pain of unemployment firsthand.
