RUSH: I have another question, ladies and gentlemen.
If the jobless rate, the unemployment rate is at a five-year low, and if the economy is booming, then why are the Democrats demanding that the emergency, temporary, one-time-only federal unemployment benefits get extended for the fifth year in a row, hmm? If unemployment’s plummeting — if employment is skyrocketing and new jobs are being created left and right, and the economy’s growing by leaps and bounds — why are the Democrats demanding that we extend again the emergency temporary, one-time-only unemployment benefit if the fifth year in a row?
That’s some emergency!
That’s some “temporary” emergency.
