Angle: Extending Unemployment Insurance 'Doesn't Benefit Anyone'


"And we need to create that climate in Washington, D.C., that encourages businesses to create those full-time, permanent jobs with a future, and all [Rep.] Shelley Berkeley and Harry Reid want to do is put a band-aid on this by extending unemployment, which really doesn't benefit anyone. What happens is, of course, that your skills stagnate. You become demoralized yourself, you know, feeling that I can't ever get a job. And these are not the solutions to the problem. We have real solutions, but they won't look at the real solutions."

The TPM Poll Average currently puts Reid ahead by 47.6%-44.3%.
