Do you think stalling on unemployment extensions is hurting the economy?


Most people don't bank unemployment checks. They spend it. That's a lot of money for a million and a half people to not have to spend.

    It looks good on paper, but a free country can't limit a person's ability to grow; even when greed gets involved. People have the attitude of "cut spending, as long as it doesn't effect me." That's why they aren't voted out. Not willing to sacrifice.

    I think they look at it as a form of job creation in an around about way. Gov't provides for unemployed and unemployed spend money which creates need for jobs or sustains what's there. If that's what they are thinking, it's not very motivating.
