“Stories like Coyne’s and Paoletti’s make some economists question whether now is the time to cut benefits. Persistently high unemployment should spur more spending to aid the jobless and prop up consumer demand, they say.”

 

“An increase in demand for social services is what you would expect in a downturn of this magnitude and so the fact that they are cutting the social safety net is quite perplexing,” said Sylvia Allegretto, a labor economist at the University of California at Berkeley. “We’ve just never seen (long-term unemployment) at these levels, period.”

 

“Other economists argue the existing benefit system is overly generous and makes Americans too dependent on social services that are untenable at a time of skyrocketing debt.”
“”The government is not here to ensure whatever standard of living you’re at, that you’re not going to go below that,” said James Sherk, a labor economist at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “That is just not the purpose of the safety net.” ”

“But Coyne worries most about losing her food stamps.

“That would be the kick in the mouth I could not take,” she said. “To have to depend on someone completely who is not related to me, that would make me feel awful.” ”
Big Hugs and Kisses to All!;+)
