Oh sure, first it was free cell phones,

now it's free gas for the great wealth re-distributor.

As the battle over Obamacare rages in Washington, the White House is quietly using a little known provision of the law to roll out a nationwide network of free gas stations for minorities and the poor.

According to a report in The Detroit News this morning, the administration is using its authority under the Affordable Care Act to "improve transportation routes to hospitals" to dispense gasoline free of cost in disadvantaged neighborhoods.

Diesel Discrimination strikes again.

(On the aside, we all know that the Daily Currant is satirical, right?)

Thank you for beating me to it. I guarantee people with dangerously low IQ levels still believe these stories are real. After all, its FOX's source for stories.

Well then...
29 days until Armageddon??

Upcoming End to Federal Extension Benefits

The EDD is notifying unemployment claimants that federal extension benefits are set to expire at the end of 2013. Unless the U.S. Congress and the President take any further action, California and all other states can no longer pay these federal extension benefits for weeks ending after December 28, 2013.

That means no further weeks of extension benefits can be paid after the end of the year, even if someone remains unemployed and still has a remaining balance on his or her extension.

The EDD estimates more than 222,000 Californians are currently certifying for federal extension benefits and will be immediately impacted by the scheduled upcoming cut-off of these benefits. Federal extension benefits are only available once someone runs out of their up to 26 weeks of regular state-provided unemployment benefits. Those initial state benefits will continue to be available.
•Those customers on extensions make up about one-third of the more than 617,000 people in California currently certifying for unemployment benefits.•The total number of claimants has gone down since the early September estimate of 770,000 mostly due to the end of Tier 4 extension benefits (refer to the End of Tier 4 Federal Extension section on this page.)..............

Customers Who Have Run Out of Maximum Benefits

As of November 25, 2013, there have been close to 1,234,300 unemployed workers in California who have run out of all available benefits.

"I would be prepared for those benefits to go away."
Unemployment Benefits Set To Expire For 1.3 Million At End Of Year


"Even if the emergency program is allowed to expire on Jan. 1, it will ‘be replaced by an even larger program — the Affordable Care Act — assisting the unemployed and others, including premium subsidies for health insurance."

You are so right. But then again everyone that I know that has or had a diesel never needed such a handout.
