Who would have thought that giving people paychecks for 96 weeks for free, somewhat, would cause people to go back to the couch ? Anyone ? Anyone ?

These are new filings, not a boost from the old ones. Those aren’t counted again as new! Your premise is fundementally flawed here.

Building the Gov’t sector, destroying the private sector. Sounds like the creation of a Marxist slave state.

RE :”When unemployment insurance extension ended, new filings fell from around 472,000 to 429,000. Now that they have been reinstated, new filings for the last two weeks have been 482,000 and 484,000. You subsidize something and you get more of it. Unemployment insurance not only causes people to stay unemployed longer, but it also has an impact on people's decision to become unemployed in the first place.

Don't you have to get laid off to get UI benefits? This part I am missing.

In any case think about how the dynamics of these job killing policies are with a democrat in charge versus a Republican. Obama and democrats can call for big gov compassion all they want, but since they own the economy now it cant help them. If a R was in charge, it would be lose-lose, and we would lose. Just like 2008,

Still hoping for that teachable moment.

Unemployment insurance has turned into the new government job under Obama&Co. why work when you can get a free lunch and the worker bee’s have to work that much harder and pay more taxes,democrats are 100% useles.
