    So, you don't have any facts about how extending the unemployment benefits will effect the economy. You just made your own projections.

    also

    How does non-spending on the part of however many thousands of people provide more benefit to the economy than spending by thousands of people--even if only on what is needed?
    I may be wrong.

    LOL, in order to interpret the results you first have to read them. Get out of your Obama trance.

Free enterprise and capitalism have no place in your world or Obama's and because this country wasn't built on the Obama principles it isn't recovering like it should.
    lol...this post shows exactly how little you know about economics, and how little you know about the real world....so sad....

    Projections don't matter, results do.

    I have waited for months now for you to educate me and all I ever see from you is someone ignoring actual data and promoting a liberal agenda and ideology that is a failure. carry on. 4 million more unemployed since Obama took office and 3 trillion added to the debt are the results that apparently Obama supporters believe are positive.

    again, you have no understanding of economics, and all you have left are insults and personal attacks....come and see me after you take some economic courses at your local college, as obviously, you are not here to learn anything.

    So, you don't think that anyone can predict what will happen if unemployment benefits are extended?

    Re: House GOP blocks bill to extend jobless benefits

    My thoughts on this is, I don't give a ****. I saw something that showed that a great majority of Americans have been jobless for over 32 weeks. What?! McDonalds not hiring? The problem with some of these people is that any work just isn't good enough for them. That some hard honest work is below them. Also democrats were gong to do the same thing people, just can't find it. ALSO this doesn't mean it cuts them off like some people are thinking, this is just the extra contribution the American government puts into it goes away. Why and how in the hell did this subject become 24 pages?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
