They need to extend unemployment benefits out for three years. That is how bad this economy is

Yes, but only citizen's whose congessional reps voted for the bill should receive federal funds. Those other's should go to their states and congressman and ask for it. Maybe they'd vote those losers out.

Why so everyone I know on unemployment can sit on there butts and not even look for a job until they run out of money then freak out at the government? I don't agree with people getting extension after extension. Being on it for years is not acceptable.
