"Just Plain Cruel!"
I heard this and had to go online to make sure I had heard it correctly: that extending unemployment benefits (again) helps the economy. Jobs help the economy, so why doesn't Obama create jobs rather than dependency? He would rather blame the Republicans for depriving people of their "lifeline". How many lifelines can you throw? As one of the commenters writes, "In his speech he said 'After five years of working and sacrificing to recover and rebuild from crisis, we have it within our power, right now, to move this country forward'. After 5 years of his economic policies, we have the 'power' to 'move the country forward' by extending 'unemployment benefits'? That pretty much says it all about this President."
