You gotta get laid off. And if this # was a result of those being added again, you’d see the # be whatever it would normally be plus all those that the extension helped. It would be almost 500k, it would be 4m+.

I can see where unemployment benefits can prolong a recession. It prolongs some tough decisions for those that try to wait it out on employers and taxpayers expense, like a lower paying job or moving. Those things would be good for the country but very difficult for the unemployed.
I think the demonization of the unemployed in this bad economy is misguided, few would give up their jobs in this climate.
