    Actually, the truth is the unemployed will spend as little of that money as they possibly can.

    Yeah, because they're such good savers.

      on food and housing.  If we let them go under then they really become a drag on the economy, for some crime becomes an option, for some homelessness, foreclosures, illness which puts them into emergency rooms.  It becomes a very expensive problem for state and local governments to deal with.  I am surprised that the governors of all 50 states are not making more noise about this.
