I can't believe someone can't find a job in 99 weeks! I found jobs for all my cousins Paco, Maria, Rogelio, Jose, Marcus, Lizette and Elvis it took me eight days in the other hand my neighbor Leroy, laquisha, Jerome and Jermain are still collecting unemployment and now that KFC is taking EBT (food stapms) why would they work? Obama hook them up! don't hate I'm just keeping it real! you better ask somebody.

Great, more welfare fraud approved.
"welfare fraud" is a redundant term

Some use their EBT (taxpayer dEBT not their dEBT) to gamble at casinos or just get a jumbo jack. We are the clowns.

Yep I was right, breakfast has increased and all the right wingers collecting unemployment are back now. They all pull up in their obnoxiously monstrous Taho’s and Yukon’s and Escalades their Expeditions and Hummers, Their Pathfinders and all the rest of them. Why do people need such massive vehicles to drive. I’m not talking fuel consumption, I could give a shit about that it’s their money, I mean why do these ugly ass yuppie prunes want to drive them? I think its hilarious they’re ALL divorced now. They’ve lost their homes and their husbands but buddy don’t come anywhere near my SUV. I wonder home many times any of those people used them the way I use my old Range Rover.

If tax cuts = job creation, why after eight years of the Bush Tax Cuts for The Rich are we in the worst recession in 75 years? Why did the economy tank after all those wonderful tax cuts...which are still in effect.
wuttabozo.
Sarah, what was the average rate of unemployment during the Bush administration....heck, the last decade? As to the recession, Sarah, look to Fannie and Freddie and forced iresponsible lending practices based upon banks having to give loans to lower income people, which was a CLINTON policy, and which loans were bought by Fannie and Freddie under the "outstanding leadership of Frank Rains" ( quote by Maxine Waters) and when those like Barney Frank kept insisting that Fannie and Freddie weren't in trouble. Last question Sarah, did you ever get a job from a poor person?

This is not about how much this is going to cost us, it is about helping our fellow Americans who are suffering greatly from the downed economy. You must already have a good job that is not threatened by the weaken economy. Have you no compassion?
Deal with it!

Actually that responsibilty lies with the banks and finance companies. They were greedy and irresponsible and helped to bring this country to it's knees. New laws drastically need to be put into place to regulate greedy companies so that repo's are not allowed when the responsibility is found to be the banks fault as well as finance companies.

So the consumer making $10.00 an hour that bought a house for $500k knowing full well they couldn't afford the payments bears no responsibility? None? What happened to personal responsibility? They also are to blame for this mess. There is a lot of blame to go around but lets not exonerate people that made poor and greedy choices themselves.

The person driving the car makes the decisions. Just because you are a passenger in that car it does not mean that you are as responsibile as the driver is. The lender is the responsible party as he is the one who says "YES" or "NO". We all want to own our own homes and the lenders know it. They hope that you will fail so that they can repossess the property. Therein lies the sinister thinking of the banks and finance companies. They preyed upon the hopes of the American people and now look at the mess that we are in with their greedyness. Oh yes we the public must absorb some of the guilt however without the encouragement of the banks and lenders we would not have signed on the dotted line. And they have the audacity to call themselves "PROFESSIONALS"!!!
