  •  Personally, I'm for a system like (8+ / 0-)

    Alaska's Permanent Fund, except instead of oil dividends, every American gets an annual payout from a different and more robust national resource, our superrich.

    But barring that, I'm for paying unemployment benefits until such time when not paying unemployment benefits won't drag the economy back into a disastrous cycle. I mean, from what I've read, paying unemployment benefits is an efficient way to stimulate the economy. Not sure why we'd want to stop doing that any time soon.
