    Exactly, and why is there a need to attatch such strings? Why can't the government just extend unemployment benefits without expanding the program, at the cost of the state?

    I'm against extending unemployment benefits. 26 weeks is more than enough time to find a job, and it's already been extended twice in the past year.

    Let the funds dry up, and their cupboards run bare, and they'll get off their butts and find employment.

    That what nearly always happens. The Feds extract peoples money from forced taxation then tell the states you are free to break from our rules but you loose your taxpayers money.

    Its a crime in my opinion.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    No. What I said in another thread was that Jindal brags about cutting taxes while accepting federal money. Stop your lies?

    Now, do you have something to say that is on topic, or are you just going to continue calling people names?
    You started the trolling bit, can't take it though eh?

    What troll bit? He attacked BOTH Obama's and Bush's stimulus plans. Both of which are related because whether you like it or not will have serious lasting effects on our economy. Whether they are negative or positive remains to be seen but they're both within the same context of the conversation. You're just mad he didn't attack Obama's stimulus plan alone.

    So, I'm guessing you would be prepared to say the same thing about Obama when he dishes out "Tax cuts for the middle class", "national health care" etc.
