Unless unemployment benefits are extended in the next few months, six million Americans will lose their benefits in 2012, including one million in January alone. This will suck $57 billion out of the economy in the first quarter of next year.

Republicans have turned several extensions of unemployment benefits into political theater, refusing to extend them without offsetting cuts elsewhere in the budget. On CNN’s State of the Union yesterday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) started this song-and-dance again, telling Candy Crowley that he would not support any plan that extended unemployment benefits without a way to pay for it, because to do otherwise is “to borrow money from China to pay people not to work”:

“If you want to extend unemployment benefits, they have to be paid for,” Paul said. “We have an unemployment program. We have a tax for it. It’s paid for for 26 weeks. So the question is, do we want to borrow money from China to pay people not to work?”

I tweeted this very thing this afternoon. Asked if he was human?

Can't post what my heart and my head are saying.

Don't ever ask for a war again. They are never paid for. How does he expect unemployed to survive?

I am going to tweet my message many times today. I agree TR, play with all our money and our lives and then have 2 unfunded wars. That money comes from somewhere and it sure isn't from their personal pockets.

I think Rand Paul's comments show a complete lack of humanity and christianity. He got what he wanted, he played to the base of fellow non-feeling, non-christian, inhuman types. My idea for them: Find your own country, go live with your intolerant selves, armed to the teeth, preaching you version of morality and christian living and leave the real people alone. You can vote for who you are told to vote for and live how they tell you to live and be happy. The rest of us are looking for something just a little different.

The French Revolution comes to mind. Its like saying Let them eat cake even though Marie Antoinette didn't really say that.
