    We've been told a great many things by the Democrats. They've most all been 180 degrees out of phase with reality.

    Oh well.

    Think where the economy would be if all those people were working for more than sub-minimum wage and not sucking tax dollars and actually paying tax dollars.

    Yup.

    Sure they are. Central City here in New Orleans is booming! Well, at least the crack and heroin trade is booming.

    The economy is always being pushed up by positive forces and down by negative forces. Unemployment benefits are a positive force because it increases consumer spending. The net effect depends on the amount of negative forces pushing the economy down such as falling real estate prices.

    Working at what jobs?

    I deal more in reality than you do.

    Without unemployment benefits we would likely be in a depression by now.
