Renewal of unemployment benefits, largely overlooked in Congress' debate over extending the payroll tax cut, comes with a hefty price

Post by Guest on Mon Feb 20, 2012 10:51 am

The extension of the payroll tax cut (accepted by Republicans without offsets) is an important boost to the economy because it puts more money in the pockets of 160 million workers. But it is unfortunate that those who don’t even have jobs will gradually be eligible for less — and about half of what they do receive will come out of the pockets of every new clerk-typist, janitor, cancer researcher, park ranger, accountant, FBI agent and so on employed by Uncle Sam.
Thank goodness the economy is warming up, because it’s clear that the hearts of some in Washington are chilling fast.

I've been an Obama supporter but if he signs this bill and he probably will, I may not vote for him... I'm so disappointed in him... He should have stood up for the unemployed and made sure that the weeks were 99 or longer...
