Nothing To Do, Nowhere To Go 1

Creeping upwards once more:

Initial jobless claims increased by 13,000 to 472,000 in the week ended June 26, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The number of people receiving unemployment insurance rose, while those getting emergency benefits dropped after Congress failed to act on extending the legislation.

Republicans and Blue Dogs appear to have a two-pronged strategy to remedy this:

Bingo. Unemployment problem solved.

    Of course we could always TRY AND PUT THEM BACK TO WORK.
    Cut the spending, cut taxes,  do something that might make business happy instead of fake stimulus packages, over regulation, draconian laws that help only big business, kill “cap and trade”, etc…
    These “benefits” are coming from where?  What money?  Why not use the already budgeted “stimulus” money for it instead of new money?  Also, when the fed funds dry up, the states will be holding the bag.  Virginia is in that problem now, since we took that money.  And I speak as one that’s been without the unemployment benefit.
    Btw, your link for “out of work” goes nowhere.
