Lost Thought 00: It's not welfare, it's insurance. You don't complain if a millionaire files a home insurance claim when their summer house burns down, do you?

I've never thought about it like that before, but now that you mention it, that doesn't seem fair. Maybe when a millionaire's house burns down the insurance company should pay the money to Planned Parenthood or another worthy cause.

"Sending millionaires unemployment checks is a case study in out-of-control spending," U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican, said in an e-mail. "Providing welfare to the wealthy undermines the program for those who need it most while burdening future generations with senseless debt."

Haven't millionaires paid the most into unemployment insurance, and you want to deny them their fair coverage? I guess this is just more wealth redistribution and class warfare from the Demo...

Wait, Coburn is a Republican from Oklahoma. WTF is going on here?
