How any Californian could vote for a Democrat for high office is beyoud comprehension.
Laid-off workers continue to file claims in record numbers even though nearly 208,000Californians have exhausted almost two years of unemployment benefits, the state Employment Development Department reports.

In August, EDD processed 677,881 claims for unemployment. Those included regular claims for the first 26 weeks of state-funded benefits as well as extended benefits funded partially or totally by the federal government.
