Hundreds Of Thousands Of Americans Have Totally Exhausted Their Jobless Benefits
According to Republicans and conservatives, that fact that hundreds of thousands of American have run out of unemployment benefits means that we ought to see a big boom in job growth. For a long time their contention has been that people who receive unemployment insurance have no incentive to look for work and that is what's "causing" our current, high state of unemployment.
Well I'll bet anyone who'd like to bet me that rather than seeing job growth zoom because people have come to the end of their benefits, we'll see something far less redeeming: a major spike in crime and social unrest. It's all coming to a city near you very soon!
