The Unemployment Crisis

Sometimes we borrow for things that make our lives better. Like buying a home, a new car, or new furniture. People borrow money to brighten their day, reward themselves, or for necessity.

Government, if needed, must deficit-spend out of not only necessity but out of moral obligation.

Certainly unemployment insurance, when necessary, is such an item.

And rather than discussing this properly, as an unemployment crisis, as a time for government to be spending and putting people back to work, we're trying to figure out how to make the unemployment checks for the unemployed even smaller.
