Democrats want jobless benefits in `cliff' deal
Since the collapse of the economy in 2008, the government has poured $520 billion - an amount equal to about half its annual deficit in recent years - into unemployment benefit extensions.

White House officials have assured Democrats that Obama is committed to extending them another year, at a cost of about $30 billion, as part of an agreement for sidestepping the fiscal cliff and reducing the size of annual increases in the federal debt.

Wait a minute, why would jobless benefits need to be extended? I thought we were in the middle of massive recovery - jobs everywhere! </sarcasm>
