    Senate Republicans Kill Unemployment Measure | The State Column


    Without looking into it too much I am on board with letting it die. If we do this yet again, when will it cease? Many people stop looking for work after they begin to draw until the benefits are coming close to an end. That is the sad truth and if we continually push the benefits out there is no reason for people to look for work.

    What say you?

    Don't they have constituents on unemployment? I mean seriously, aren't they in fact hurting the people who voted them in ?

    Its called unemployment benefits because you paid for it with taxes. Its unemployment insurance.

    And you pay for the roads through taxes as well? What is your point. This bill would add to the deficit in the tune of 33 billion, obviously taxes are NOT covering the whole thing. That is, in fact, why the GOP killed it. It was not deficit neutral.

    The government finds ways to screw everyone. The unemployment system itself encourages unemployment. But people also pay into it for years and and then when they want some of their money back they get hosed...

    Paying people not to work is not good for the country & is not stimulus. FDR's WPA was even better than paying someone to get fat & unproductive sitting on the couch all day. It will be hell getting someone to work again after sitting around for 2 years. Extending unemployment is the absolute worst thing to do. We need windmills, oil, water, & carbon pipelines, sewer & water treatment plants, electric grid, solar, insulation, & old buildings torn down. The Obamacrats have their head way up their ass on this one.

    I dont wish it on anyone but if you happen to need the government to pay you unemployment (after years of paying for it yourself) .....well, good luck and or refuse it since you hate all this "spending". Take a stand and refuse the money literally owed to you.

    I have never taken a dime of government unemployment, welfare, healthcare, foodstamps, or housing. This is not something you take for yourself you idiot. You talk like an ignorant welfare queen.
