Sad but true. :( And the worst part is these idiots keep voting these liberals is. :(
Obama admin does want everyone on subsistence. That's the agenda for a Socialist. Obama and his cronies are just that, Socialists. Ever heard the term "from cradle to the grave"? That's what their aim is for Government to run your life from the cradle to the grave. No more freedoms.
I agree, and who is expected to pay for all this care, the hardworking people that can't get ahead because they are being overtaxed.
No more of that critical thinking! Back in line, peasant!
I'm glad Kathy can turn up her heat! It's been cold! Extended unemployment benefits do allow for more money to enter the economy.... more money.....potentially more jobs...<br />
"Unemployment was extended 5 times under Bush... the left never balked...different party in power....<br />
"When George W. Bush was president, noted Labor Secretary Thomas Perez on Jim Lehrer’s PBS show last week, unemployment benefits were extended five times, “no strings attached any of those times.” So as long as it was a Republican president under whom their constituents were out of work, they were happy to vote to extend the benefits. The last extension under Bush, in late 2008, passed 368-28 in the House of Representatives. Remember, this was with no “pay-fors,” in the argot. This vote took place a month before Election Day, which may have partly motivated 142 Republicans to vote for it with only the real hard-shellers going against it." http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/01/13/the-fight-over-unemployment-benefits-underscores-the-right-s-extremism.html
You're missing the point Rosie. Unemployment should be used as an interim until one gets a new job. Nothing wrong with that since employers pay into it. My point is that this administration would have everyone relying on the Government from the moment they are born until the they are placed in the ground. This Government wants to take away your freedoms, your rights that that are guaranteed under the constitution. In fact they want to do away the the constitution altogether. There have been comments by the left that the our constitution, the one our soldiers, Marines and navy have died over the centuries to protect, as well as the politicians and presidents have taken oaths to uphold and protect, should be torn up and rewritten.
Do you realize that the constitution was written to protect this country's citizens from an overreaching overbearing Government? That's what they want now, a Government the runs your life and ever aspect of it.
I have to agree, I am 15th generation American. My ancestors fought and died to protect a way of life that was free and allowed people to work hard and get ahead. Not to be controlled every minute and every way by any government.
Or you could look at the economic study undertaken during GW Bush's presidency which found for every dollar paid in unemployment benefits , two were added to the real economy. I would have thought that kind of thing might excite fiscal conservatives , no ?
You sidestepped my point though.
LOL, I know right? But to these Obama supporters everything is Bush's fault. They blamed the black woman that went on a rampage and tried to slam her car into the white house Bush's fault. When insurance companies started cancelling policies because of the "affordable healthcare act", that was bush's fault. There was one ludicrous thing that nothing to do with politics that I read last night that was blamed on Bush. I just cant remember what it was it was so inane.
I agree with you, it doesn't create jobs at all. It merely allows someone who was gainfully employed for a period of time to maintain their essentials of life while searching for another job in their field, or a similar field, that pays within 80% of what they were getting paid before their "layoff" so to speak. I don't feel that it should be considered an "entitlement" like welfare or food stamps or medicaid, but It certainly is essential in the short term, to allow people the means and opportunity to get back into the workforce.
So spending by unemployment insurance recipients creates jobs and spurs the economy but spending by the wealthy does not because thats the "discredited trickle down theory". I see.
Face the facts you hate OBAMA anything and everything is his fault<br />
Wait and watch when both houses are in control of the republicans and every program gets cut by Billions the have's and have nott's who have the NRA in there back pocket will come out for the haves and you can blame the Black guy for that too. Hate is Hate
This isn't about hate and you who fall back to that tactic are using that as a cop out.
Hey you forget who you are talking to. No work and then get some pot, and you have a God for a president.
