"Unemployment compensation is just another welfare program. (interruption) "What do you mean, how dare me?" Somewhere there needs to be truth, and there's journalism going on in this program."

"This is another expanded welfare program. It's a welfare program. It's not called that. It's called unemployment compensation insurance"

I'm willing to bet that there are thousands of teabaggers that have collected unemployment. I guess the tea party if full of welfare recipients. It's the first of the month.

I quit listening to Rush years ago... I guess it's easy to look down on people from his vantage point of moral superiority....

I guess the only other thing I have to add is: There, but for the grace of God, go I........

No doubt. But they realize that they've paid into the system. As far as welfare recipients, not so much.

Show up at the Lincoln Memorial on 8/28 and you'll see thousands of honorable American citizens. Why would people on the welfare roles want to kill the goose that lays their monthly check?

Doesn't one have to first have a job and then get laid off before one can collect unemployment?

Do welfare recipients pay into an insurance fund similar to unemployment?

Is Rush Limbaugh again confusing his listeners with nonsense?

Sounds like a contradiction. In your first post you agree that people who receive unemployment are welfare recipients, only later to say that teabaggers who receive unemployment are not welfare recipients.
