    If you don't have a job, you aren't filing income tax forms, so you aren't getting any benefit from those changes.

    We need either a jobs program or a dole.

    I don't think the Puritans in this country would allow a dole, even if they benefited from it, so a jobs program it must be.

    And it needs to be government-based, because private companies won't hire all us old farts over 50 because the insurance is too high. Of course, that could have been addressed during the health care debate, but noooo.
