    On one hand, the economy is terrible and there are people who legitimately kind find jobs.

    On the other hand, many people take advantage of this and would rather live off unemployment insurance than get a job.

    Yes.

    On the other hand it's a small percentage who uses the system to their advantage..

    We do not have the Money to keep extending benefits. In fact the Federal Government has in effect bankrupted shortly all the States as they will QUIT giving them money to pay for the extended benefits. NO ONE has earned the right to collect unemployment benefits for over a year.
