Unemployment benefits expire for 1.3M Americans

Opponents argue the extended benefits are a disincentive for job hunting and unnecessary with unemployment coming down. Let us know what you think. Should these benefits be extended? And if so, for how long? Vote in the poll to the right and tell us your thoughts in the comments section below.
