People arent going to be making more sitting on their couch After 4 months. They will only receive their normal unemployment which is usually only half of what they make. The 600 dollars extra is only for 4 months.For less than what they were making staying home?
- if employers are forced to operate ‘leaner’ and succeed then they might not rehire as many
- If employers raise wages to encourage the unemployed to get off the couch (pay them more than the government is paying them to sit on their couch) we will create inflation — couple ‘wage pressure’ with Trillions of newly printed dollars we have just successfully created a ‘perfect storm’ of hyper-inflation.
Remember this: What happens in 4 months? The president election officially begins. With that the economy always slows due to uncertainty (employers hold off non-essential hiring until afterwards) .... this ensures a ‘slow recovery’ to give the Democratic Party an advantage. Brace for Obama policies 2.0 with trillions of dollars going to the ‘political connected’ with ‘Green energy’ deals (Solyndra 2.0).
No such animal as ‘coincidence’ in Politics and this Bill’s last minute provisions by Pelosi and ‘gang’ is to help them regain power!!!!
Another angle: Politicians need problems to solve to gain power — it is in their interest to create a problem to solve next fall.
