    There are. I did not work for a year because of back surgery. Went and got a job did not like the company so quit after 6 weeks. A week later I had another job. I have not collected any unemployment either

    1) Flooding the market with spending. Check
    2) Expanding military spending. Check
    3) Reducing interest rates. Check
    4) Giving incentives to corporations to spend. Check
    5) Lowering taxes. Check.

    Wait, I forgot. Who are we talking about?
    Obama is creating more taxes than he is lowering

    Spending does not help if it is not causing private sector jobs. Unemployment is still rising showing Obama's spending is not motivating private industry

    A believe the taxes in 2009 were historically low, due to tax breaks in the stimulus bill.

    I think the 1st quarter of 2009 real GDP quite declining. Guess what it is being driven by, personal consumption expenditures. Of course we have not reached the 3.4% annual GDP growth needed to decrease unemployment yet.

    You believe? Letting Bush tax cuts expire and things like cap and tax will cause far more then the little tax cuts Obama has done

    We will not see unemployment go down until the private sector starts increasing production

    Did those happen in 2009? Ahh, yes maybe this year, that is yet to be seen.

    It does not matter. It is simply not financially feasible to continually expand unemployment benefits until there are enough jobs. How many "jobs" are enough? How many people refuse to take "jobs" just because they perhaps would earn basically the same amount as they can collect on unemployment?

    A line has to be drawn somewhere. We simply cannot afford to endlessly deficit spend for this vague notion of "jobs".
