Canadians screwed out of 50 Billion Bucks

No shit, did you know that by 2007 us Canadians will have overpaid unemployment premiums by an accumulated 50 Billion bucks??

That adds up to $1700/person or $3500/working person in Canada. The accumulated surplus on EI is 50 billion bucks!!!!! Holy crap, that's like 10% of our federal debt.

So you're probably thinking why don't they give the money back? For fucks sakes they spent it on other stuff. Like debt reduction and "program spending". So all those record surpluses you see every year are at least 10-30% funded by you the taxpayer and your employer getting screwed.
