Thats what Indiana democratic representative David Niezgodski stated- and combatting the facts with sponsorship of a bill that addresses the gaps in Indiana’s unemployment program. Currently, 25 states have run out of unemployment money and have borrowed $24 billion from the federal government to cover the gaps. By 2011, according to Department of Labor estimates, 40 state funds will have been emptied by the jobless tsunami.Cutting benefits – or raise payroll tax. “Unemployment benefits are funded by the payroll tax on employers that is collected at a rate that is supposed to keep the funds solvent.” There are many sides to the debate with unions vouching for certain limitations and protocols alongside employers vouching for others..

“The recession’s jobless toll is draining unemployment-compensation funds so fast that according to federal projections, 40 state programs will go broke within two years and need $90 billion in loans to keep issuing the benefit checks.” MSNBC
