And the jobless will pay a heavy toll for Republican's fuzzy math:
A proposal to cut unemployment benefits and to reduce the amount of time people can receive them is petty, hurtful and unnecessary...without the cuts, the federal government would require that employers pay higher unemployment taxes, which would rise by $21 per year, per employee, until the debt was paid off.
That's right, unemployed workers (and their families) will lose more each week than employers would have to pay for a whole year. Considerably more. If there ever was a bill that should be buried in committee, this is the one.
