    Wisconsin Unemployment rate, 6.5%.
    Minnesota Unemployment rate 4.8%
    Yep, Walker is doing a heck of a job.

    As Romney so elegantly stated......the poor and unemployed will not vote Republucan anyway.

    Better to make them the scapegoats for what is wrong with this country and refocus attention away from the rich

    Not a real great accomplishment owning Candy Cowley.

    She's just another mindless barking moonbat who howls at whatever pitch instinct tells her too, so the rest of the pack can parrot along.

    Walker seems like a good enough guy to me, we'll see who the actual candidates are. We just better not end up with Christie or Bush.

    I thought that too but compared to many of their stupid candidates, he has a shot. He knows where the money is and how to get at it.

    I am so looking forward to hearing Mitt Romney with Chris Wallace today on Fox News Channel at 11:00 am, to repeat at 3:00pm. Think how strong the economy would have been had he been elected president. JOBS everywhere...low taxes and regulations. A rising tide lifts all boats.

    It's one of their corrupt ways of keeping people down until they ALL quit looking for work. Benefits were only designed to be temporary....for 99 weeks??? The sooner everyone is on big government teats, the more power, read votes, for the socialist party.

    So sad how all this is going down, and so fast, and all in the name of benevolence. :lol:

    Same problem.

    After the 9/11 attacks we had a pretty serious recession in the construction industry. I got laid off and had to compete with illegals for work, literally.

    I worked for weeks at $6 an hour cash doing menial shit like moving piles of gravel with a shovel and wheel barrows. I finally got another job as an electrician for $10 an hour. It pissed me off that I took a %35 pay cut from my last electrical job, but I was still grateful for the work.

    I could have gone on unemployment, while making cash money and brought home more.

    That's called integrity, I'll define it for the benefit of our resident parasitic libtards:


    INTEGRITY:

    /inˈtegritē/

    noun: integrity

    1. The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.

    He has a shot in that he seems more "reasonable" then the other possibilities, has shown incredible resilience (I'll give him that one) and seems to learn from mistakes.

    However, if he gets passed the primaries, and that's probably a big if, he's got no shot in the General.

    I have asked this question of those who support extending unemployment benefits again on other threads. How long would you extend them before a final cutoff date? I don't recall ever getting a answer to that.

    Depending on who he'd be running against in the General, I might be worried.

    Personally I wouldn't want to rent Candy, much less own her. But Kudos to Walker just the same.

    How long?

    There should be another metric.

    It should be based off the national unemployment rate. If employment indicators are showing signs of stability and there are jobs out there, then unemployment benefits should end.

    Personally? I'd rather see the same thing happen that happened when Reagan cut UE. The government hired at federal, state and local levels to the tune of 600K new hires.

    Obama's administration lost 400K.

    And in NYC alone, we now are at historical lows in terms of city and state staffing.

    That's pretty awful.

    If we go by the national unemployment rate shouldn't we be holding the length of benefits at there current length or reducing them as the unemployment rate has been falling? I do however question the unemployment rate because it does not factor in those who have stopped looking for work or count I believe those who are part time it does though seem like there would be some issues with that method.
