    That spending directly into the economy is offset by the tax revenue it costs to fund those unemployment payments, the higher deficit and debt created. People keeping more of their own money do the same thing and have zero impact on the deficits and debt.

    I believe you actually know that and simply are doing your best to create discussion and more posts. You are too smart to believe that people keeping more of their own money is an expense to the govt.

    As far as tobacco goes, they still make cigarettes. Also, pipe tobacco isn't taxed the same. I know a guy who rolls that up and smokes it for far cheaper.

    Using your logic, they should legalize crack because that would create taxable jobs.
    So, in an ttempt to defend the Leftist agenda, you resort to the totally rediculous? Why is it so hard for Libbos to address the actual facts, vice resorting to the, "do you still beat your wife", angle?

    So you take taxpayer money, give it to somebody to spend, so it can be taxed as income and revenue again, so you can give it back to the same person.........

    It's insanity. It's like paying your Visa bill with your Mastercard.

    So, you are claiming that unemployment creats jobs?

    If that were true, the economy should have fully recovered, by now.

    One would think that--with that attitude--you would be mad as hell about all the jobs that the Dems have killed.

    That doesn't seem to be the case. Why not?

    I was wondering the same thing. Might have been better if people were still wondering if there was going to be an extention or not. (I know, I'm mean) Not everyone is just laying around collecting for as long as they can, but I know some personally who have done that in the past. It wasn't for 2 yrs though. Yikes!
