    How so? They have never denied what I said, so how is it not according to them?

    Re: Unemployment Benefits Extension

    Why should unemployment bennies be extended? The economy is booming. Ain't it?

    No one is saying that, so why would you?

    We're in recovery. Obama said so. Haven't you been watching the news?

    Instead of extending bennies, with money we don't have, Obama should stop creating a hostile environment for businesses and let the private sector fix the economy by creating wealth and jobs, because the government can't do either of those.

    Being in a recovery, which we undoubtedly are, is not the same thing as "booming". If you want a hostile environment to business, take away unemployment benefits and watch consumer spending drop.

    Re: Unemployment Benefits Extension

    I'm in the middle on this, it's about time to end it but then again, it will hurt.

    I guess I'm willing to live with the hurt more than piling on more debt.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    oh yeah! People are taking their un-employment bennies and buying toothpaste and **** paper. That's firin' up the economy, aww-right.

    You betcha!

    What we need is more regulation for businesses in this country. That'll fix the economy, huh?

    Yes, people are buying things with their unemployment money, which means people have to supply those items, which is jobs. Is this simple concept too complex?

    The regulations are to prevent another meltdown like this from happening again. Saying that the regulations won't do something they are not designed to is not making much of a point.

    My thought is that ending benefits will slow recovery, which is the first big step towards solving the debt problem.

    Believe this poll is being a little distorted. Have not followed the issue that closely. But I believe the issue with the GOP is the fact that the benefit extension is unfunded. There are no cuts elsewhere to pony up the funds to pay for the extension.

    The resources will essentially come from printing more cash and floating more debt.
