A recession could turn in to a depression.

I can’t help but see the news and hear how around 40 million Americans will lose unemployment benefits at midnight Tuesday. I think extending these benefits will help the economy at least with people buying gifts for the holidays. I don’t think Washington could be a big Grinch now when it is holiday season. Most importantly it’s Christmas. It would be heart-breaking seeing families go without their holiday traditions just because benefits will run out. I’d rather see the federal government go into debt and help families out. The federal deficit is at an all time high and cutting, raising or freezing taxes to American families is the least of the problems when people could go hungry.
