    I agree with this statement from the article:
    "Most Republicans opposed the bill because the $6.4 billion cost of the extension is not offset with spending cuts elsewhere in the federal budget. Some Republicans also view the benefits as a deterrent for recipients to look for jobs. "

    I don't think the benefits should be extended. When they are talking about cutting military pay and benefits and other needed programs but are willing to spend $6.4 billion so people can continue to sit at home unemployed.. its ridiculous.

    I understand that there are people in which it is very hard to find a job, but I also think there are more that are too proud to go flip burgers or greet people at walmart.
