Since there is no agreement regarding "the Fiscal Cliff", I received a letter saying my unemployment runs out this month.

Other than Paul Krugman's columns, I rarely see any serious discussion of the long-term unemployed. Now this government letter comes today, and while it was not a surprise, it just seems incomprehensible that this is happening to me and to so many others. I created a thread about 6 months ago about being unemployed and all this time later I am still unable to find work work in NYC in financial services, and I happily take a much-lower paying job than my previous $150,000 per year salary but I cannot even seem to get an interview. When I sometimes do get a call, said "The company thinks if they hire you they figure you will leave for a higher paying job at the first possible chance." (As if they exist.) I had savings which have kept me going but other than emptying my 401K, which I am loathe to do at the age of 48, have been applying everywhere never thought I would be in this position. I go to the gym to keep a positive attitude but the weather this past weekend coupled with the letter is not helping. So is this happening to anyone else here?
