HERITAGE ACTION POSITION: NO

Vote Description

The Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act extends the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program for three months. The EUC program provides for an additional 47 weeks of federally funded unemployment compensation, bringing the total length to 73 weeks.

Heritage Action Position

Extending the EUC will have and adverse effect on the economy causing higher unemployment, longer unemployment, more ineffective stimulus. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the 3-month proposal would cost taxpayers $6.555 billion. Taxpayers not cannot afford tens of billions in new spending (a full one-year extension would cost upwards of $25 billion), and even if lawmakers attempt to offset this new spending with real cuts elsewhere, they would still be throwing taxpayer money at an ineffective and wasteful program.
