Are tax cuts to the top 2% of earners in America really going to create jobs? No - not if there isn't a demand for goods and as long as unemployment is above 9.5% there is a lot of people pinching pockets and lessening demand. Extending unemployment benefits actually helps demand a bit. Exetnding tax cuts for the-rich really does nothing other that make the rich more rich.
