House Republicans Opposed To Extended Unemployment Benefits Could Pay The Price In 2014: Poll

An overwhelming majority of voters are opposed to cutting off extended jobless benefits for the unemployed, a poll revealed on Monday.

The left-leaning Public Policy Polling surveyed voters in four key congressional districts, as well as House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) district, to gauge support for extending unemployment benefits. The poll, funded by the liberal advocacy group Americans United for Change, showed that voters across party lines were overwhelmingly in favor of extending the benefits, with 63 to 68 percent of voters in each district expressing support for preserving jobless benefits.

Voters in the four districts surveyed said they were less likely to vote for the Republican incumbent in 2014 -- by at least a 9-point margin -- were he to vote to cut off extended unemployment benefits.

Federal unemployment benefits have been extended from the original 13 weeks to almost two years (99 weeks!)

Should we just tell people, "Don't worry if you can't find work, take your whole life to find a job!"

Our country is SINKING in debt. Every dollar provided for unemployment is a dollar BORROWED! While it's nice to have sympathy, we don't have the money to keep extending the time period longer and longer.

I would sugeest that the people who are collecting unemployment be provided a copy of the book Afformations instead. It's the unemployed person's responsibility to find a way to support themselves - not taxpayers.

It's a good idea to have unemployment insurance and that there be money there to provide a softer landing for those who become unemployed, but to just hand out money like it's water even though the money is really cotton candy based created out of thin air makes this country weaker and weaker.

BTW, there is no provision in the US Constitution for the federal government to be involved in paying out unemployment to anyone. Not one dime.

Sinking in debt, good point. Send them a copy of the book Afformations instead. You really want to piss them off don't you. chuckle.gif

"BTW, there is no provision in the US Constitution for the federal government to be involved in paying out unemployment to anyone. Not one dime."

That was the argument given by conservatives that wanted to block the WPA and the CCC during the Great Depression. And in fact the conservative Supreme Court of the day found them unconstitutional...after they had already finished the programs.

As a result of conservative actions the voting population went violently to the left. The court was replaced with an activist left leaning court.

I think the Republicans are right, but they are going to be "dead right". They really need to reconsider their position until the numbers agree with them.

So on this one we kinda agree.

Yeah,,,them shovel ready jobs weren't so shovel ready,,,

so went the story,,,the money was to bail out the states,,,

states can't print funny money,,,only .fed can,,,and so it

continues,,,and the Republicans better wake up,,,no future

in any Tea Party fiscal wisdom,,,the game now is to print and

spend,,,and to buy the votes of all lost causes,,,sympathy play,,,

and you got to feel sorry for many,,,the good jobs are leaving,,,

and at least they did work,,,verses never have,,,but this game

is being played out all over the free world,,,not just here,,,

check out real unemployment numbers...

Yeah,,,the state already had most of the money already spent,,,

but should there be any left for infrastructure,,,well,,,those all

go to union jobs,,,to pay the union dues,,,and the pensions,,,

and of course the superior health care,,,and to campaign donations,,,

to the Democrats,,,of course,,,so the money goes full circle so

to speak,,,but yeah,,,everything will get better next year,,,

cause some truthsayer said so,,,no the priorities have seemed

to do very little with the creation of any new,,,or better jobs,,,

here,,,Oh,,,and Happy New Year...

I'm afraid we agree not at all. Someone needs to be the grownup in the room when it comes to paying out unconstitutional dough that we don't have. Hell, why not make unemployment checks 200 weeks or 500 weeks! WTF

Each person from infant to 100 years old each owes about $60,000. That's our share of the debt. if the unpaid future SS and other promised befits are included it reaches as high as $200,000 depending on how the amounts are calculated.

Those amounts are over and above what it costs to run the government each year! So you pay your taxes and add an extra $10,000 to your IRS bill each year and in 20 years, you're paid up. All your children need to do the same.

The book Afformations would be the best investment anyone could make, especially if they are out of work. If there is one book that could save the US, it is this book. A strong claim for sure.

I wouldn't give it out however. It needs to be read. To get that done, the person needs to buy it because a free book gathering dust on the shelf won't cut it.

Simple solution,,,but not sure it is the right one,,,

problem won't go away,,,buying the votes of the poor,,,

is an old game...

Hi Bag,

Glad to see someone is worried about the debt,,,

I am too,,,and agree we should live within our means,,,

cause sooner or later we will,,,

but afraid these guys know about the debt,,,

but it is not their money,,,they have their money,,,

they have no problem spending someone elses money,,,

for their power,,,if they were paying the bills,,,

everything would be quite different...

Grownups don't run the country. Politicians that win elections run the country. Its less than a year till the mid-term elections. We will see what happens.

It dont matter who wins because they all work for the same people. Its why they make it damn near impossible for a third-party to exist much less run.
