I forgive you criticize extending unemployment benefits.
Saying that you -- -- opposed to giving people money for doing nothing.
Benefits of -- even extended to 99 weeks and they are set to expire soon.
If you were president today would you extend unemployment benefits and if not how do you justify that to the millions of unemployed Americans who are looking.
In earnest and whose families are depending on -- checks.
Well what -- said is that I think unemployment compensation.
Should be tied directly to a training program.
And if you have to if you don't have a job and you need help.
Then an order for us to give you the help.
You should sign up for a business led training program so that that 99 weeks becomes an investment in human capital.
Giving us the best trained workforce in the world so you can get a job.
But I believe it is fundamentally wrong.
To give people money for 99 weeks for doing nothing that's why we can't.
The news the president signs up for proposed extension is to allow all fifty states to experiment at the state level.
With developing a mandatory training component.
Of unemployment compensation.
-- you have fifty parallel experiments.
And not pretend that Washington knows best.
For the Washington can solve the problem by itself but I believe deeply and people should not get money for doing nothing.
