Here’s the story from CNSNews:
(CNSNews.com) â€“ Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said that extending long-term unemployment benefits would be the â€œbest stimulus there isâ€ for the economy, saying it would create the most jobs for the money.
â€œAt the end of last year, there were 5 million people receiving emergency UI [unemployment insurance]. This year, there are only 2 million. Itâ€™s working,â€ Schumer said at a press conference Thursday.
â€œWeâ€™re all talking about a stimulus. How do we get the economy moving? This is the best stimulus there is.â€
