White House officials have assured Democrats that President Barack Obama is committed to extending benefits for another year. Obama has proposed the $30 billion extension as part of ongoing negotiations over cutting federal deficits.

Let the benefits expire. I'm so sick of Washington extending benefits indefinitely on these unemployed people. It gives them absolutely no incentive to find a job. OK, so he wants them to be able to screw around for another year on the government? I'm as empathetic as the next person when a person loses a job. They need a few months of unemployment benefits to tide them over until they can find a job. But the benefits weren't meant to be a permanent fund for them.

Although I agree whole heartedly.... I would prefer that Unemployment benefits be continually reduced... first six months, 100% of entitlement.... 6-12 months, 80%... etc...

This would be better than extending this for years at a time at the same rate... we are giving each other (any of us could end up needing these benefits) the safety net, but at the same time, providing a very strong incentive to find a job that pays better.

The way it is now, people just hope for the benefits to be extended indefinitely and don't do anything until they are not... knowing you are getting guaranteed benefits, but at a gradually reduced rate, has a very strong psychological impact.

So two million people may be losing their unemployment benefits? If they're the 99-week-ers, EXCELLENT!

That means a lot of unemployed people are suddenly and MAGICALLY about to become employed.

"The Man of Bronze"! My ex had the series in old pulp paperback!

Yep. Suddenly, those jobs that were "beneath their station" will suddenly look desirable.

Another ex had a deadbeat dad who ignored child support until he was threatened with contempt of court. MAGICALLY, a check for all of the back child support would arrive the next day!baffle
