Democrats want extension of
unemployment benefits for 2 million

Washington — Hovering in the background of the "fiscal cliff" debate is the prospect of 2 million people losing their unemployment benefits four days after Christmas."This is the real cliff," said Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I. He´s been leading the effort to include another extension of benefits for the long-term unemployed in any deal to avert looming tax increases and massive spending cuts in January. "Many of these people are struggling to pay mortgages, to provide education for their children," Reed said this past week as President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio,

2 million people is .06% of the population (not counting our Mexican guests overstaying their welcome).

Did Mr Reed ask himself why these people are still jobless 99 weeks later? Couldn it have something to do with unions and Dem economic policy?

Not to mention the fact that it´s those mortgages that got us here in the first place.

That´s their answer to the fiscal cliff -- tax the rich and spend, spend, spend.

In short the Rats demand that the GOP betray their base and cut their own throats politically, so that the Rad base is protected completely from the effects of their bad policies. Where is the skin in the game? The sad part is that the cry baby will probably go along and take the blame as well.

Obama just said all sectors of the economy are doing good. National unemployment at 7.7% and employers saying they´re planning on adding staff next year so we do we need more extensions? Manufacturers are saying they can´t find skilled workers despite the country spending billions on job training.Must be in buggy whip industries.

What these people need is a job skill not a handout.The workforce is becoming more specialized.I know a guy who makes $500-$1000 a week doing piddly jobs in brick stone,putting in floors bathrooms etc.

The Democrats are wanting a bailout of their failed economic policies by extending the already extended unemployment payments. At what point does unemployment become welfare? We´re stealing from our children and their children to pay for this since the government borrows 46 percent of whatever it spends.

More bloat to the bill. I have been warning, this is stimulus porkulous 2013. Mark my words, trillions in bailouts rescues, spending. It´s the Obama Dem way. The taxes won´t be for anything but more spending. No debt will be paid, the debt ceiling will be raised to infinity, and we have to pass the bill to know what´s in it.

Just do it already, sick of the threats, it will just be pushed through New Years Eve right before midnight, anyway.

The Republicans should support this and put stipulations on it that there be mandatory drug testing, mandatory training and it be reduced over time. Also partial support should be given if they get a job a lower rate than the previous job.

And the government needs to cut spending elsewhere to pay for it.

So 99 weeks (two years) isn´t enough time to ´find a job´...tough, let Obama take the hit for ruining the economy. The more we bail them out the better they do, how much sense does that make?

Since Obama keeps changing the deal, it is obvious that what he really wants is to go over the fiscal cliff. He is not negotiating; he is sending new order and desires out over the media every day. Who can keep up with them?

There is but one solution to reducing unemployment, and the Obama administration is totally opposed to it.

Create an environment where the private sector is comfortable hiring people.

Democrats want to pay people NOT to work.

Do they fund it from spending cuts?
Do they fund it from more efficient government?
Do they fund it from cutting pork?

No.

They want workers and employers to pay their dependent class NOT to work.
They want to borrow more money and charge it to the American taxpayer.
They want to operate Washington WITHOUT passing budgets as required by law.

Washington breaks the very laws that they inflict on us.
When will everyone be required to follow the same laws we do?

Why do libs think welfare & unemployment are good for the economy? They don´t. They lie.

This am I watched a news spot on an event in Ohio, where 200 free apartments were taking applications. 2,ooo showed up & all were dressed in muslim garb. Somalia refugees or students here on visas? In 2011, foreign student visas were up by 840k.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
