    Re: Senate OKs jobless aid after Sen. Bunning relents

    What's this?

    You mean President Obama made it a point to make a big political deal through huge rhetoric about the irresponsibility of congress and needing Paygo and the media and democrats rejoice and then when someone actually wants us to actually go by that very principle he's a senile crotchety old man.

    Who'd have thought. I thought all of Obama's rhetoric that he used and the media and liberals slurped up ALWAYS turned out to be truthful

    The war costs are tiny when compared to the drunken binge Obama's been on.
    Yep, this doesn't mean the wars are fiscally responsible at all. But its completely disgusting partisan politics to rail and rail and rail against the Wars and Bush's deficits and say nothing about the Stimulus or Obama.

    Obama's deficit in his first year was twice that of the largest one Bush ever ran. Obama's first year deficit is larger than the next four largest of Bush's, COMBINED. Obama's first year and projected second year deficits are larger than ALL EIGHT YEARS of George Bush.

    To rail against Bush's deficits, and to imply that somehow stopping the wars is going to fix it all financially without even muttering a word about Stimulus and Obama's spending, is pure hyper partisanship without an OUNCE of objective critiquing of the situation.

    The real question is whether or not it is a permanent law or an appropriation.

    Does the extension have an expiration date? Yes, therefore it is not direct spending.

    Nice spin but the democrats want pay go then want to manipulate what it covers. More BS from Obama that means nothing.

    Have a link to the warfare costs? I remember reading something about how a lot of the spending was totally off the books on some emergency spending clause. I'm wondering how they calculate all of that.

    Right on. It is a combination of wars and the stealfromus packages that have us with our national MasterCard overextended, no question about it.

    However, 700 billion of that deficit was signed into law by Bush in the form of TARP funds.

    The current deficit is the Bush/Obama/ Congress deficit, not owned by any one person.

    True. Now, just imagine where we might be without having fought a war on credit and without having tried to spend our way to prosperity. Imagine where we might be if our government had not only refrained from the above, but had regulated such as AIG, Fannie May and Freddy Mac, thus preventing the current recession. Just imagine the US, in short, with a functional federal government.

    What a spineless and weak old fool. Washington seriously needs a reset button.

    Really?

    The extension means if an individual was about to exhaust their state benefits and about to exhaust a tier of emergency unemployment compensation, they are eligible to apply to move up to the next tier. However, if an individual is about to exhaust their final tier or extended benefits, this will not help them.

    This does not add more weeks of benefits, it just extends the deadline in which people can qualify for either Emergency Unemployment Compensation or extended benefits,” says Judy Conti of NELP in Washington.
