    Hate to break it to you but you are the last person on this thread that I would worry about as you have made your own bed, sleep in it.

    As for cutting benefits to those that are unemployed, yep, after 2 years they should be stopped completely. How do you know how many jobs TX has? Have you had anyone from Ohio come here and not get a job?

    or lets try it this way

    If that scenario happens, would you still advocate cutting taxes on the rich knowing that it will not produce the jobs for the lower 20%?
    No one is talking cutting taxes for anyone. The only thing they want to happen is INCREASING taxes on the wealthy. The dems want an increase. The republicans want taxes to stay the same.
    Raising taxes on anyone is not a good idea at this time.

    apparently you don't know how to do research...you don't have enough jobs for your own citizens.....7.8% unemployment....again conservative, where are the jobs you would shift all those unemployed to? what do you expect those people to do? again, no personal storys, no 'personal responsibility crap'...how are these people supposed to live? how do they feed their kids? figured i ask the last one as you are opposed to all aid programs.

    Is that right? Again you are an expert on TX just like you are a legend in your own mind on just about every other issue. Do you know what full employment is in this country and in the state of TX? Bet we are closer to full employment in TX than you are in Ohio. But then again you miss the point as usual. The people of TX are so miserable and unhappy that they elected another 20 Republican legislators this last election. I know this probably escaped your research but two divisions of Caterpillar just moved to TX from Illinois bringing thousands of jobs. Companies from California are also relocating to TX so the beat goes on. Keep showing your total and complete ignorance when it comes to both economics, civics, and business. You do that so well.

    As for unemployment benefits, I quite frankly have zero respect for individuals that take two years to get a job. For those that need to eat, go to the local charities, churches, or community as that is where that responsibility lies. I don't think the people of Florida, TX, or any other state should be funding unemployment in the state of TX and that is what happens when the Federal Govt. gets involved. Obviously you don't understand personal responsibility at all.

    Yep, that is me, nailed it, congratulations! You are indeed a legend in your own mind. Where are the jobs? Ask Obama, he lost 4 million of them in two years. You hired him to clean up the "Bush" mess and what did he do? Added 4 million to the unemployment roles! Now Obama wants to raise taxes on the top 2% and you again continue to buy the rhetoric. Please name for me just one economic prediction that Obama has made that has been accurate? Just one. Now of course this one? Extending the tax cuts for the top 2% will COST 700 billion dollars. I am still waiting for an explanation as to how allowing people to keep more of what they earn is an expense to the govt? You bought it, now explain it?
