As -- back now to the economy Susan -- -- with another round of questions is.
Thank you governor Romney you've suggested replacing government jobless benefits with individual unemployment savings accounts.
Jobless benefits for millions of Americans are about to expire just a few months if you were president right now would you extend them.
We've got a lot of people out of work.
We get a president that has a entirely failed economic policy at frankly doesn't know what to do to get this economy going again.
Surely we're gonna help those people who can't find other ways to care for themselves.
But the most important thing we're talking about tonight is making sure the President Obama is replaced by someone who knows how to get this economy going again.
That's -- this debate is really about and that's at the American people want to understand.
Unemployment benefits I think they've gone a long long long time we have to find ways to reduce our spending got a lot of that.
Anti poverty programs and unemployment programs but I would far rather see.
A reform of our unemployment system to allow people to have a personal account.
Which they're able to draw from as opposed to having endless unemployment benefits so again.
Let's reform the system make this system work better by giving people responsibility for their own.
Employment opportunities and having that account.
Rather than doling out year after a year more money from an unemployment -- is -- also would you sign a bill to extend unemployment insurance if you were president right now.
If our president right now.
I would go to congress with a new system for unemployment which would have specific accounts from which people could withdraw their own funds.
And I would not put in place a continuation of the current plan.
