Can you say 150 weeks of unemployment benefits?

Department Of Labor Comes Begging: Hilda Solis Asks For Extension Of Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program

"With millions of Americans still looking for work, now is not the time to cut key safety net programs like Unemployment Insurance. The Emergency Unemployment Compensation program is set to expire at the end of November. If that happens, 2 million people will lose benefits in December and 6 million by the end of next year.



DOESN'T MATTER LADY.

43 million americans are on food stamps.

The economy is still crashing.

Bernanke is doing everything he can to screw the little people.

Obama just cheers him.

The republicans are already cheering for a war budget increase while America is dying...

Extending unemployment benefits won't solve America's problems.

I'll only correct you in one spot.

I honestly believe Bernanke is trying his darnedest to save us all.

There is nothing he can do himself. He is grasping at straws. Without the government doing it's part to cut it's costs that are not helping the economy grow and people to live, there is no room for his policies to help.

The republicans keep trying to fuel the fire breathing war machine, but the fuel is all burned up.

Nobody can seem to create an effective government that spends money but does so wisely where it is needed.

I really don't think anybody in the govenment can really wrap their head around how the complex world economy, the fed, the government all interact. I know I can't.

Re: LABOR DEPARTMENT ASKING TO EXTEND UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS AGAIN!!
I came up with a theory.

I believe Republican policies will have a retarding effect on the growth our economy. However, we could still see decent growth if one thing happens: the public just plain has to believe that the Republicans will save things. Consumer confidence goes up and the economy starts chugging along.

Even if the Democratic policies do help the economy, no one has faith that they do so no matter how much liquidity there is out there, the economy doesn't grow.
