General revenue should pay back EI

I hope Faye Saxon has jarred a few folks memories as to reallocating Employment Insurance funds to general revenue. (EI Funding Sacrificed to General Revenue, June 12 Capital News.)

When this was done I knew, right there and then, that the present situation would arise.

A kindergarten pupil would have known this would happen, so maybe the general revenue should get busy and put back what they took out of EI. This money comes directly from the working force of which I was part and parcel for 42 years and never once did I draw EI.

I know for certain that most folks are like me and this money belongs to the working class, so why are we now short that they have to start making new rules.

If they have no intentions of paying out they should not be allowed to collect from our pay cheques without our permission.
