At least he is calm

Last fall, Barack Obama was deemed by all the great and good as the man to save the country from its financial crisis because of his calm. As John McCain flailed around, Obama stayed steady, and commentators ascribed to him the most extraordinary leadership qualities based merely on his equipoise.

States missing out on extended jobless benefits

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - More than a half-million unemployed workers in Ohio and other states including Georgia are missing out on extended federal benefits because of the way laws in their states are written.

The economic stimulus package allows states with high unemployment to provide up to 20 weeks of extended federal benefits to workers who have exhausted other government benefits. But 13 states and the District of Columbia have laws written in a way that prevent them from qualifying for the money, according to a study by the National Employment Law Project, which promotes policies and programs that assist workers.

Lawmakers passed a nearly $22 billion spending plan that includes about $900 million in new revenues, consumed for the most part by school-enrollment growth, increasing retirement benefit-plan expenses for state employees and about $288 million to reduce an austerity cut for public schools. The 2016 budget also increases the local school-district cost of insurance for bus drivers and other non-certified school workers by more than $100 million, so it remains to be seen how much of the $288 million is used for teacher raises and undoing recession-era cuts.
