    So you are saying because they served their country they don't get to collect on an insurance policy they paid into?

    I have said this many times...You do not get to pick and choose who gets to benefit.  We all do or we all don't.  The rules are clear.  He wasn't exactly fired, he was more or less laid off.  I doubt that the HR dept of Congress would fight it.

    I don't know what the rules are.  Maybe they don't pay in, in which case he would not qualify.

    I agree though.  Now that he is one of us, he is whining.  I mean doesn't he love his children?  How freaking cold can a person get?  And if he does get unemployment, I am pretty sure they can attach those wages as well.

    He is able bodied so there is no excuse for him not having a job.
