    Who cares how they see them? I have a problem with continuing “unemployment benefits” using borrowed taxpayer money because that makes them welfare not unemployment insurance which is paid for by employees and employers.

    I don’t think anybody believes that but all the entitlements do give people on the streets augmenting there income with gasp non-taxed activities. Some legal some illegal.

    It looks to me like he’s creating a job for the guy with the vest – so isn’t this how the Democrats see things?

    My 30 year old nephew who inherited a building company recently told me that he was very upset with the welfare state. He couldn’t keep people on the job because they would work just long enough to qualify for unemployment, stay on it until it run out and then come back to work. The was standing in his 3/4 of a million dollar house telling me that he paid his workers so badly that they were better off on welfare, and he thought they THEY should be ashamed? And, he was serious!!!!!

    @D Lee

    Please stop trolling. Your story is complete BS. No state allows you to collect UI if you quit your job, and many of them now won’t let people collect if they were terminated for “just cause”. Most employers won’t hire you back after you quit or were fired.

    Nice way to show affection for your nephew; hopefully he doesn’t recognize your screen name.
    Another way to look at it is, welfare is so high people are willing to live on it. Or more simply, the system allows too much fraud.
    Why can’t govt foster a work ethic? Then there may be more people around with $3/4M homes, instead of insulting their own flesh & blood.

    because that makes them welfare not unemployment insurance
    Enoki, you’ve posted that meme many times, but consider the fact that welfare has a completely different criteria, varying by locality, than extended unemployment benefits. For welfare, you have to be pretty much indigent or unable to care for yourself. That includes not just the poor, but the sick, disabled, elderly poor, etc. Republicans again and again point to a few bad eggs and want to demonize, humiliate, and punish people who are unemployed through no fault of their own.
    If you want to call it something else, then fine, just do it. Even a modest three month extension of the current 26-month would help people not lose their homes and generally cause misery.
    But then again, it’s been Republican policy to endorse regulations that hurt people. It’s what they do.
