Rand Paul: People on Unemployment Insurance for 99 Weeks Perpetuate an Unemployed Economy

President Obama urged Congress to extend unemployment benefits during his weekly address Saturday, “If Congress refuses to act, it won’t just hurt families already struggling – it will actually harm our economy. Unemployment insurance is one of the most effective ways there is to boost our economy." More than one million individuals are on unemployment insurance. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) explained that extending benefits beyond 26 weeks actually hurts workers and the economy.
