We could afford to bailout Wall Street, we can afford unemployment benefits

Leave it to the Republicans to make a fuss about extending a few hundred dollars a week of unemployment benefits. If it’s OK to fund a war that nobody wants and it’s OK to bailout the Wall Street gamblers, this is chump change. Unemployed is unemployed, whether you are living in a state where the rate is above 6% or below. The people complaining don’t have this worry because even if they’re voted out of office they will land on their feet with cushy lobbyist jobs not to mention a pension plan rarely seen in the outside world.
