Florida Cuts Unemployment Benefits to Pay for Corporate Tax Cut

I used to work for this jackass years ago when he was CEO of Columbia/HCA.
He was an out-of-touch elitist primadonna back then, and hasn't changed much, only now has less hair.
In the last few months, conservatives in several states have moved to limit unemployment benefits, even with the national unemployment rate at 9 percent and more than 40 percent of the unemployed having been out of work for six months or more. Conservative lawmakers in Utah falsely claimed that cutting jobless benefits would be motivation for people to get back to work, while Michigan gutted its unemployment insurance system despite having one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation.
