Unemployment - Hide the Incline

Propublica has a post up noting that unemployment doesn't seem to be getting any better:
So far, 25 states have run out of money [2] and been forced to borrow from the federal government, raise taxes or cut benefits And we project that the trust funds in nine more – Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Vermont – will go into the red in the next six months.
Fear not, Gov Ritter is a close personal friend of the management, and can probably get us a loan. He could pay it back by taxing those of us lucky enough to have jobs, which we drive to by converting the major freeways here into toll roads, or he could simply raise the registration fees..... oh wait.
