    I read that most people find work within one week of the end of their unemployment benefits.

    If true it is an interesting bit of information regarding the effect of prolonged unemployment benefits. It might suggest that more benefits just staves off realistic decisions about employment.

    What I see is the Obama regime using every available mechanism to transfer wealth from the middle-class to the miscreant-class. Food stamps, subsidized housing, cash (unemployment benefits). That attracts every immigrant in the western hemisphere and then you make them all citizens (and democrats by default). Now you've altered the balance of power and don't have to put up with those pesky elections and republican candidates and can get on with "transformation".

    The democrats decided they didn't want to play in a fair game anymore.
