Posted on 12/06/2012 1:45:58 PM PST by Olog-hai
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said that extending long-term unemployment benefits would be the best stimulus there is for the economy, saying it would create the most jobs for the money.
Schumer and fellow Senate Democrats called for yet another extension of benefits for the long-term unemployed before the current benefit extension expires at the end of the year.

The stupidity of Schumer just makes my head hurt.
If Jobless Benefits are “The Best Stimulus There Is”, then we should ALL GO ON UNEMPLOYMENT!!!!!
That would solve all our ills, according to Schumer.
Dumber than a box of rocks.
Yes! He is right. It stimulates joblessness. Is that what he wants?
Unemployment benefits soon to become classified as a government job, unemployemnt rolls to go way down.
So why doesn’t Schumer do his patriotic duty, help stimulate the economy by going on unemployment benefits himself?
“Jobless benefits help the economy”
is exactly like the Broken Window Fallacy
it’s the same thing really
If we were all uemployed, this economy would be really rocking!! uh... no
All I can say to such inanity is.. oh my gawd. I know I’m sounding old, but such “retardation” is prevalent in America and to take care of yourselves. There is no going back anytime soon.
Maybe those on unemployment should form a ‘laborless union’.
This makes Schumer dumber than Pelosi, who is dumber than a box of rocks. Amazing.
All jobless benefits should be issued as an EBT card so that we could see what it was used to buy. Big screen tv’s would be high on the list..last would be rent and food..my guess.
And who's money would that be? Oh right, Obambi's stash.
Forgive him, for he is Dim-bulb-crat, and higher mental functions (such as elementary economics) are completely beyond his ability.
just as stupid as saying the trickle affect starts in the middle or the bottom.
These people really are so stupid that they have convinced themselves they are smart
Why don’t we make printing or copying money legal? That way no one will ever have to go without again.
In a way, he’s right.
It keeps people from storming Capitol Hill and dragging them out to the nearest tree.................
He’s not dumb he’s pushing an agenda which provides security and wealth for himself.
So there’s all kinds of Disposable Income with Unemployment Benefits? Funny, I remember barely being able to pay the rent.
He bascially admits that using “stimulus” to buy votes is the ‘Rat plan.
No jobless benefits. Spread the pain. If the voters like Obama and think that his tax raising policies create jobs then let them test that theory. If the dems are correct, then nobody need worry about jobless benefits as the jobs will be coming. It is time for the Republicans to stop insulating the electorate from the consequences of their votes.
