You were expecting something different?

Today, from Missouri Governor Mike Parson (r):

GOVERNOR PARSON ANNOUNCES MISSOURI TO END ALL FEDERAL PANDEMIC-RELATED UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS
Press Release
MAY 11, 2021

JEFFERSON CITY In order to address workforce shortages across the state, Governor Mike Parson today directed the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations (DOLIR) to notify the U.S. Department of Labor that Missouri will end participation in all federal pandemic-related unemployment insurance programs effective Saturday, June 12 at 11:59 p.m.

“From conversations with business owners across the state, we know that they are struggling not because of COVID-19 but because of labor shortages resulting from these excessive federal unemployment programs,” Governor Parson said. “While these benefits provided supplementary financial assistance during the height of COVID-19, they were intended to be temporary, and their continuation has instead worsened the workforce issues we are facing. It’s time that we end these programs that have ultimately incentivized people to stay out of the workforce.”

“As I travel the state, from Sarcoxie to Hannibal and all points in between, over-arching concerns from business owners is the shortage of employees,” Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe said. “Across every industry, businesses cannot compete against federal largesse. Our economy is built upon an active and vibrant workforce, and we should be cultivating job-creation and employment rather than inhibiting them. The jobs exist and the demand exists, and I applaud the governor for taking this bold and decisive action.”

The termination announced today applies to the following programs:

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance;
Emergency Unemployment Relief for Government Entities and Nonprofit Organizations;
Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation;
Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation;
100 Percent Reimbursement of Short-Time Compensation Benefit Costs Paid Under State Law; and
Mixed Earner Unemployment Compensation.
“We know that one of the last remaining hurdles to full economic recovery is addressing this labor shortage. Even with unemployment at only 4.2 percent, there are still 221,266 known job postings across the state,” Governor Parson said. “The solution to close this gap is not the excessive spending of taxpayer dollars by the federal government, but rather getting people back to work and to a sense of normalcy for themselves and their families. Today’s action ensures that we will fill existing jobs as well as the thousands of new jobs coming to our state as businesses continue to invest and expand in Missouri.”

In a letter to the U.S. Department of Labor, Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Director Anna Hui gave notice of Missouri’s intention to terminate all federal pandemic-related unemployment programs. To view the letter, see attachment.

“During the last recession in 2008, the federal government contributed $25 per week to supplement state unemployment benefits. During the latest economic downturn, Washington poured in $600 per week in addition to Missouri’s weekly benefit of up to $320,” said Director Hui.

“Even after the original $600 supplement expired, it was replaced by a federal supplement that provides an extra $300 per week on top of Missouri’s existing state benefit, meaning thousands of claimants continue to receive $620 per week or more,” Director Hui continued. “The unemployment system is designed to provide a temporary safety net as workers look to reenter the job market. Leaving the level of benefits artificially high would prevent a return to full employment in our state.”

Today’s action follows steps taken last July to require claimants to again conduct weekly work searches in order to be eligible for unemployment benefits. This work search requirement had originally been waived in March of 2020 as part of an agreement with the federal government to receive funds under the CARES Act.

Under Missouri’s law, claimants are required to perform and report three work search activities per week. Qualified work search activities include filing an application (online or in-person) with an employer or through job posting sites or attending a job fair, job interview, reemployment service, or skills workshop.

Let’s use this as a teachable moment. Bears can hurt & kill people. But authorities didn’t engage the bear until it was safe to do so without having to kill it. The same residents who were under threat celebrated the non-lethal resolution.

Now imagine that … with humans.

“The most dangerous place to stand in Washington D.C. is any place between Senator Josh Hawley and a live microphone” – Charles P. Pierce

Did you talk about Wayne DuMond and Missouri? Just asking.

A few of the comments:

I wonder how much of what you say you actually believe.

Another hour of free television time? Wow. You really are the most censored person in America. I would have watched, but I missed the notice because Huckabee blocks me.

Most Americans, including you, use “big tech” every day and find it very useful. There are some concerns about their rules and use of information, but I am far more concerned about the tyranny of right-wing extremism.

There is no upside to your brand of politics.

Tyranny of insurrection

The Whine and Lie to Liars about Companies that Wouldn’t Amplify My Seditious Lies Tour continues.

Anything to stay away from Missourians. Wouldn’t want to talk to any of them, anyway. Except maybe if they give me money.

This morning:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
Hiking taxes to pay for President Biden’s massive wish list spending is the last thing American families and small businesses need.

Our nation is the land of the American Dream — not socialism.
[….]
9:46 AM · May 5, 2021

About those subsidies…

And, as usual, there is much hilarity in the responses:

Tell us Rep. Hartzler: how much are your taxes going up? It will only raise taxes on couples who make more than $800,000. My taxes aren’t going up because I’m not that rich.

Everyone should know that Republicans like @RepHartzler called Social Security “socialism”, and Republicans like @RepHartzler called Medicare “Marxism”, all to protect their corrupt privilege, and out of dripping disdain for working men and women. [….]

Hartzler never looks at facts. She doesn’t believe in science , but she is great around the kitchen with that Home Economics degree.

I wish I had enough wealth to to pay higher taxes. What makes you so special to justify your resentment to helping America, Vicky?

Thank goodness then, that they are hiking taxes for the most wealthy Americans and the large corporations. It will help take the burden off the rest of American families and small businesses who could really use the help.

I was going to point out that this is another #HartzlerLieOfTheDay, but everyone else did an outstanding job. [….]

Yeah, that’s why you shouldn’t ever take farm subsidies. Oh wait…

Middle income and lower American families and small businesses will be the last to pay any new taxes, unlike BIG businesses and HIGH income families.

It’s corporate America’s punishment for not doing enough over the last 4 years. They were given the opportunity but chose to put personal interests ahead of community.

Wait didn’t you get farm subsidies so I guess the taxes he is proposing will affect you, right? Always looking out for your personal interests & those of your donors but not your working class constituents like me. Also quit lying. Anyway, I can’t wait to vote against you again.

But hiking taxes will not add to the deficit, and it is coming from the wealthy, not the middle class or small businesses. We need the cash.

Maybe instead of giving millions in tax breaks to the 1% & inflating our deficit $2 trillion we can start having the rich pay their fair share? The rich profit by using our tax funded roads, bridges, dams, internet but they pay very little in taxes bcz of the GQP tax deal.

There’s that.

SMALL businesses and most Americans won’t see tax hikes dummy

Direct. To the point.

hooray. his plan won’t raise taxes on moat American families and small businesses!

but… it would likely impact you, Vicky

Shouldn’t have given 2 trillion tax cut to the wealthy and we’d have that much more money to take care of the country

Hiking taxes on the wealthy to improve our communities is a good thing.

It’s *not* socialism, it’s returning tax rates to where they used to be, for corporations and for the rich.

It’s not on us as u well know. It’s on the same ones that u and your Republican gave a unnecessary tax cut to a few years ago.
TRICKLE DOWN has never worked for anyone other then the rich

Here’s a thought…. the wish list would not be so long and amount would not be so high if the elements he’s addressing were not neglected for so long. What I see is someone willing to get things done for the benefit of our country. Tweeting is not governing. Get to work.

You’d think so, but, no.

Middle class American families won’t be affected much, if at all and his policies are enjoying bipartisan popularity with folks.

Let’s give them a whirl, while you sit this one out.

Send back your stimulus checks..

.Socialism and social spending ARE NOT the SAME THING! Either the January 6th Party is just plain stupid or they purposely put out misinformation to confuse the electorate.

Bless your heart [….]

Hiking taxes on people who make over $400,000 a year isn’t a problem. Lying repugs who support insurrection is the problem. The only real question is what repugs are gonna do if enough of their base finally wakes up.

Jesus Christ. Your party has spent DECADES not doing anything and now our country is falling apart. Corporations — not “families or small businesses” — will once again be paying their fair share, and we can a) start fixing things and then b) start building new things

Try doing something productive with your time as my representative, like making my life and my family’s life and my friends’ lives better, instead of just banging the drum against non-existent “socialism”.

How much percentage of American families earn $400,000k a year?

Is that why you cut taxes for the rich? Why weren’t American families your concern then?

You’re an American Nightmare.

We’re tired of living in your Republican shitsscape evangelical caliphate. Kick rocks.

Gaslight bullshit

Are you new? Or just stupid?

You were perfectly okay with higher taxes on the middle class when Trump did it. Now you’re butthurt because Biden wants the 1% to pay their fair share.

Stop gaslighting your constituents and get some damn morals. The rich should be taxed far more.

Hiking taxes on ***the upper class & big corps*** is exactly what american families need. Not even the upper-middle class. Just the folks who donate big $$$ to people like you to push big BS like this. They’re the only ones who aren’t contributing their fair share.

So all your constituents returned
their socialist stimulus checks?
and are opting out of Social Security?
What a bunch of hypocrites.

1) individuals’ taxes will not go up under Biden’s plan except for those portions of taxable income over $400,000/year.
2) Biden’s plan is not socialism.

Quit lying.

Oh please, stop pedaling your lies. Corporations haven’t done a damn thing for anyone since Obama AND Trump reduced the tax rate. You make me sick! Do you realize how many poor folk live in your district, lol

Oh please. We all heard president Biden say the tax rates with be raised for people making over 400k. That represents a small percentage of American. 55 large corporations paid ZERO federal taxes last year. Most Americans don’t pay ZERO in federal taxes

Stop your bullshit

Raising taxes on corporations and supper rich will have no effect on working class . It’s what Americans deserve . No more trickle down economics by the GOPQ.

This isn’t socialism. My god, do they not sell dictionaries to conservative idiots?

You’re a moron. If you don’t believe in government, then get out of it.

There you go.

The Vice President is living rent free inside Vicky Hartzler’s (r) head. Today:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler

Someone never got out of junior high school, either. It’s the mean lunch table.

As usual, the responses are hilarious:

I imagine both will happen before you admit lying about the VP and her book.

True that.

We should explore the space between your ears.

Pass.

#Seditionist sez, “What?”

Is @RepHartzler more likely to defend the Constitution or a father who objectifies his own daughter?

#GOPDemocracyCrisis

I’d say both are more likely than you holding a open town hall meeting

Heh.

Seems to be living in that head of yours

We noticed that, too.

What are the gop primary policy goals right now? Your last several tweets are about the border. Even if you perceive it as a problem, you have to admit you failed to offer any solutions when your party held power. Do you have nothing to offer for Missourians?

You’re like a brain damaged parrot.

Are you an idiot?
