For the life of me, I don't get the logic of taxing the long-unemployed poor to finance extended unemployment insurance benefits for those who have just recently lost their jobs.

Nor is it just to finance extended unemployment benefits by raising the premiums paid by future workers.

In the USSA, there is great gummint-mandated transfer of wealth, not only from the unemployed to the employed, but from males to females, from the young to the old, from the Black to the White, from the single to the married and from the child-free to the breeders.

Socialism seems to have little to do with caring for the poor among us.

So... how exactly is the "bonus for finding a job" supposed to help... when there are no jobs to be found?
