    Get rid of unemployment "insurance" and more out-of-work people will search for jobs. Get rid of minimum wage laws and they will be able to find them.
    If it weren't for a forced minimum wage, there would be no such thing as involuntary unemployment.

    Professor D'Amico was informed, intelligent and charming. Please invite him back to your show.

    Notice how she couldn't answer the question, how do unemployment subsidies stimulate the economy? It's because they DON'T stimulate the economy. THAT'S what's for sure.

    Why are all the liberals on this show women? Come on, ladies, we're smarter than that! No Constitutional ladies out there? (Not saying the show is sexist in the least; making an observation that the majority of liberals on the show are women.)

    Well, its clear you have a job or you wouldnt be so caviler about just cutting people off. While it is true that there are those that take advantage of a flawed system but there are other answers other than just tossing the proverbial baby out with the bathwater. I kinda like the idea of after so much time it becomes a loan, starting with little or no interest but increasingly growing along with obvious lack of sincerely looking for work. And of course encouraging private sector job growth with long term tax incentives and lowering corporate taxes and stuff smarter people than me think of all the time. but thats just me, for what thats worth.

    Yes, one should throw the baby out with the bathwater – when it’s a devil baby!
    Don’t kid yourself. The DC creeps and their cheerleaders are not smarter or more compassionate than you. They use other people’s money to buy votes and expand the power of the state. Pure evil.
    When I had employees it always bugged me that I had to pay their unemployment “insurance” and hassle with the related state and federal paperwork. Why should the employer pay the premium when it is the employee who is at risk of becoming unemployed? Why not force me to pay for their other insurance too? Oh, I forgot: they’re doing that.
    Of course in the end it does cost the employee, because money I could be paying him has to be contributed instead to a government scheme. BTW, the reason I use quotes is that this is not really insurance at all. A real insurance policy is a contract that buyer and seller abide by, and as we’ve seen, politicians can change the terms of this deal any time they think it will benefit them – at our expense.
