    a new thing...that an employer that hires a person that has been out of work for 2 months or more will be forgiven payroll taxes. What about THAT??

    He'll just charge higher taxes elsewhere. Slash taxes across the board and that'll jumpstart the hiring even better!

    All this proves, once again, is that Obama will say anything to get his way!

    The "Liar in Chief" strikes again! This person will say/do anything that furthers his personal agenda and to hell with the republic.

    I agree with most here. I just wanted to put it out there.

    Another "quick fix" that will have major ramifications later. These types of things will be will be used in one of two ways later. Either "look what we tried to do for the American people" or "We did this and this and this for the American people. Aren't we a great administration?"

    It is part of the just passed - JOBS BILL :rofl:

    Increase in number of weeks someone can stay on unemployment is part of the jobs bill :rofl: - It kills me that they say paying someone unemployment creates jobs. Sure they spend the money so that gives a business some sales so that company can pay its employee - but what a stretch -

    You could say the same thing about flying in an airplane and just randomly shoveling money out as you fly over America.

    It is the NAME they give these bills that really scraps a nerve -

    The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was the $800+ billion pork for everyone

    This one is called the “HIRE Act”

    Hiring Incentive to Restore Employment Act

    Lets see, I get a tax credit of a few thou for hiring someone I don't have any work for and who will cost me $100,000 per year in pay and benefits. Yep. Makes perfect business sense to me. All hail the brilliant Community Organizer! Salvation is here!

    Anything you subsidized you get more of it. It's a simple fact.

    So, a tax break for hiring someone who has been unable to find a job for 2 months.

    Way to keep the playing field level. There are a dozen reasons someone would be unable to find work for 2 months, including but not limited to the fact that the guy is a loser who nobody wants to pay.
