Bunning isn’t worried about reelection, so the Democrats screaming “YOU HATE UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE!!!” isn’t going to work on him.
In the end, that is the ONLY thing this “Jobs” bill is about, making Republicans vote against “Jobs”.
We have some REAL WHACKOS running the White House and Congress now, folks
The Dems are both insane and unrepentently cynical. They know that the logical outcome of their UIC extensions is that you will end up with a generation of people who end up permanently on the government dole. If the limits are not respected, you end up with another unfunded entitlement program and create a huge incentive for many workers to give up searching for a job. It’s always easy to promise more, more, more when you’re not the one suffering the consequences of your reckless political posturing.
Statistically, once unemployment runs out, people are many times more likely to find jobs.
It’s amazing how the employers know when your unemployment runs out and offer more jobs.
I know, I know, this recession IS different, because we have a guy that is intentionally NOT allowing job creation.
