      Los Angeles, CA

We The People demand that The National Unemployment Agency remove the mandatory "must join" BIG BANKS (Bank of America, US Bank, Wells Fargo, & JP Morgan Chase) to receive government unemployment benefits. The people should have a choice as to whether they should receive checks or direct deposit to their credit unions or personal banks. We should not be forced to become members and be subjugated to penalty fees, our private information sold, and giving our money to one of the very banks that is responsible for our country's financial crisis. Please join us in the next step forward in standing up to big banks and letting them know that the world is watching and we will no longer be silenced. Remove mandatory "must join" BIG BANKS (Bank of America, US Bank, Wells Fargo, & JP Morgan Chase) to receive government unemployment Benefit Checks (EDD). Give the people a choice.

      This is just another problem for the 99% created by Congress for the big banks who fund their campaigns. Our problems are never fixed because someone is profiting from things staying just the way they are. The only answer to ever fixing "any" of our problems is to get money out of government.

      The Government will not force the citizems to use specific banks to limit how eligible persons recieve their rightful benefits.
