I don’t want to say that extending unemployment payments keeps people from looking for a job, but…

This was posted on a local community Facebook page today (name omitted to protect the guilty):

“Hi, I’m looking for a receptionist job (preferably in a medical environment). Unemployment coming to an end and looking to start a job asap.”

Now what does that post imply to you? “Unemployment coming to an end” and “looking to start a job asap.”

Because to me it says, “I wasn’t looking for a job while Dear Leader was sending me checks.”

Which tells you all you need to know about why extending unemployment payments is a Bad Idea.
