Well now....has the Biggest liar decided to not ummm, a, 'er lie any more? Who can believe a word Obama utters when he is known as a liar. The Republicans got as a concession to the Debt Ceiling a promise that this welfare farce would not happen. Got that? Boehner has been shafted again.

Hit the phones Freepers and help cut Mr. Obama off above the knees. Take some ACTION! Obama doesn't ever keep his word about anything.....everyone wise up...fool me once, fool me twice, fool me three time proves I am stupid!

Unemployment benefits are essentially a mandatory insurance policy your employer and the employee are forced to pay on your behalf. You can’t opt out. So while you are employed this is in effect coming out of YOUR paycheck.
The correct way to handle unemployment is either:
- make the coverage optional so that the employer can pay more money up front to the employee.
- Pay out all benefits in one lump sum just like any other insurance settlement with a valid claim on a loss.
If paid in a lump sum most people would have incentive to find work immediately.

Boehner is a shaft giver himself and IMO should be out of power.
The simple word NO will suffice from any party with a spine, so yes the Republicans could have trouble with this as more of them are voted to retirement.

I think the extension should be renamed the “Obama economic failure Act”.

What does unemployment pay? $1100-$1200 a month? WTH are these people doing with that? Buying a bag of doritos and paying their cell phone bill? Do they live in their parent’s basement?

Frankly, until we find a way to ‘shame these democrats’ into admitting it is their own policies that “require” an ongoing extension of benefits when unemployment is claimed to be below 8%...we will never fix the real economy.

IMO, since the Pubbies are eventually going to cave on this anyway, they should just get it over with and pull the plug on his little sideshow.

We always seem to get the worst of both worlds....additional unwarranted spending AND Democrats bashing us about the face and head for weeks at a time.

Oh heck. Why not just have a national minimum guaranteed income to be paid for by the people who have jobs.

This perhaps is his only issue.

No one believes lucifercare, immagration just won't be discussed (imo), Republicans and The Tea Party have survived every attack and his tranny "wife" wants nothing to do with him.

We may not be able to impeach him ( I really want to think momentum is building ), but he can be shown to be the assclown embarrassment he is.

Well what is it Mr. Marxist Obama?? You say you have created jobs but here you are saying people need emergency unemployment money. Why? If there are so many jobs?? Oh that’s right because you are a LIAR.

I’m sure they “feel” pressured, when they are not rolling on the floor, laughing at him. ;-)

My understand now is indeed that there are much more jobs available out there than people think, but that not working has literally become too attractive to people. And that there are whole industries that have more job openings than a applicants but for numerous reasons, this being one, they still don’t have takers for all their positions.

In addition to having it be 6 months (maybe 9 if there is a legit recession) and having to show proof that you looked for jobs there could also be a way to provide monitoring to those who are looking for work and ensure that they conduct job interviews properly and provide proof that they did their job searches properly. And show that they looked at ALL available jobs - in other words, cut off unemployment benefits to anyone who is only looking at jobs they find attractive and cannot show proof that they seriously considered all job opportunities that were handed to them. Now I know that local, state and federal gov’ts can and would find plenty of ways to screw this system up but I suspect it would still work way better than what we have now.

If you have received the mandatory 26 weeks which was extended to 99 weeks, thus Unemployment Compensation should be done with. The employer pays for the insurance and what is the government stating that the employers are to continue paying the insurance. This is just a redistribution of wealth.

Well when their unemployment runs out then they should just get their Obamaphone, Obamahome, Obamaloan, WIC, SNAP, WELFARE, that ought to net them more than they make working right there... Nothing like dis-incentivizing work, nothing could be more unamerican but hey welcome to the fundamental change... Everyone should quit working and chill out smoke pot all day and let the stupid people that want to work pay for all of it... LOL...
