It's ABOUT TIME! How many "extensions" do people expect? Time to go BACK TO WORK! Watch, when the free money stops, suddenly we'll see the "unemployment" rate finally go down. Unemployment is like anything else. If you subsidize it, you get more of it.

Yep, and that is precisely what the scumbag Democrats count on.
They want to add as many government-dependent parasites to their "base" as they possibly can.

That’s nice, but our side is too stupid to couple it with a message demanding tax cuts for businesses, LLCs, S-corps, etc., to allow businesses to really hire people...no, we have to be stupid and just vote against it without sound bytes for the media saying tax cuts...

How could the GOP in the HOUSE block anything? There must be more to it than that.

One of our relative has been collecting unemployment for ever. His wife works so he tells us it cheaper for him to stay at home and watch the kids then to go to work. Plus he gets paid for staying at home.

This is risky...

What you do is not extend during news of job growth or through some type of incentive for businesses to create new jobs (tax cuts).

By just doing this outright...it could easily backfire on the GOP and the Dems will have a field day.

For what it's worth, I first saw this on PBS’s Nightly Business Report with Suzanne Pratt and Tom Hudson, and it was reported simply as the extension being denied. Only by Congress, no political party was mentioned and no blame/credit was given.

That was a pleasant surprise to me.

Much as I feel for the ones who are unemployed, some of which
are friends, I am SO happy to see news of saving OUR money instead
of spending it!

Republicans in the House have blocked a bill that would have extended jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed beyond the holiday season.
And the Pubbies aren't even in the majority, which means this is media spin at its usual. Thanks USALiberty.

People need to know that they can and should work at McDonalds to support their family if need be. It’s not the governments job (and us taxpayers) to support them.

“Time to go BACK TO WORK!”

I’m not sure what state you live in, but nowadays it is simple to enter any ZIP code in Monster, Careerbuilder, etc. and see exactly what is out there. Here in northern NJ many people who wanted to “get back to work” have simply fled the state. The few jobs that exist pay probably 75% of what they did 3 years ago (while taxes, insurance have only gone up), and there are hundreds of applicants for each job. This is probably the main reason the new rail tunnel under the Hudson River was really canceled; there is simply no demand for it anymore.

Under our previous governor they admitted NJ had lost population without factoring illegal immigration into the mix. We’re losing another representative/electoral vote after the last census; the state (along with NY State) is de-populating as companies and workers/taxpayers flee. That is how NJ will correct its unemployment problem; the people will continue leaving. I hope the other states have a lot of employment opportunities, because a lot of “Jersey Shore”-looking people are coming to a town near you...

By “blocked” the MSM means GOPers wouldn’t vote for it unless it was paid for with cuts elsewhere, right??

this is a double edge sword , yes I’m for not extending unemployment when you got jobs here and people just does not what to work , but when there are next to no jobs or you cant relocate to india or china then not extending is a problem 7-8 dollars and hour jobs are not going to fix the housing problem or the credit problems , or debt problems yes unemployment will come down because people not going to file , but more people will be on the street there is a big difference in not wanting to work in a good economy and cant work in a bad economy fox news had a article on the other day that for every job opening in america five americans are filling out applications for those jobs ,there are not enough jobs here in america to fill the unemployment slots.another thing to consider when these small companies have to fit the bill for obama care you think they are going to hire keep dreaming....

“It’s ABOUT TIME! How many “extensions” do people expect? Time to go BACK TO WORK!”

and to think all this time I thought jobs come from business, not from unemployed people.
Guess what? Businesses aren’t hiring! Fix THAT problem and then the UI extension isn’t an issue.
