This only costs $32 Billion. A small drop in Obama's $2.4 Trillion bucket.

Tard, educate yourself.

In 2008, the millionaires you speak of (.23% of all returns) paid 24.1% of all income taxes. AGIs of $100k and above (12.8% of all returns) paid 74.5% of all income taxes. The bottom 48% paid a WHOPPING 2.1% of all income taxes.

How much more do you think we should punish the producers in this country? No wonder the Democrats are in the majority. "The government who robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul" --George Bernard Shaw

You should take a rudimentary class in both micro and macro economics. You heard of that saying "money isn't real" right? Well, when Obama extends these unemployment benefits, "money isn't real" because the Federal government just prints more money while the economy is worsening. In other words, one U.S. dollar is worth less than it was before; it's purchasing power has decreased. In a nutshell, we're screwed.

It has nothing to do with "evil whitey Republicans" playing favorites with "greedy whiteys" on the hill or along the beach.

Oh yeah. In case you want to do the math yourself (which is doubtful), go here - http://www.irs.gov/taxstats/indtaxstats/artic... .

It seems to me that the unemployment benefits extension will do nothing positive for the economy. However, to characterize it as fraud is dishonest. A correct example of fraud would be some USS Liberty crewmen who have profited from false assertions (i.e. deliberate lies) about Israel's completely justified (though erroneous) 1967 attack on a spy-ship commanded by incompetents.

Hello, tax cuts = job creation. It really is that simple. How many jobs are poor people creating? Ummmm, none. PS when the Bush tax cuts expire in January, it is goning to mean a tax hike for EVERYONE, not just the rich. Try looking to history and see how increases in taxes during a recession has worked......It's called a depression. Hang on to your hat honey,'cause this is going to be a BIG double dipper with massive inflation on the horizon, and a majority of that you can thank the CURRENT idiot in chief for.

Personally I think this is marvelous. I especially love watching the people with those obnoxiously huge SUV’s pulling up to the pumps and putting in 20 bucks. I love seeing their distraught looks and that obvious expression of “how did this all happen”? Oh and those cartoon characters on your back window? Are they still getting the latest designer clothing? Well it was fun while it lasted wasn’t it? Yep, we’re all millionaires. Fkn presents trying to look rich. Well enjoy your soup, you cooked it you eat it.
