I don't think he means when the money runs out, obarry will just print more. What he is talking about is when the unemployed cannot collect anymore because their unemployment is exhausted.
You people that elected this community leader are getting what you paid for and so are the rest of us, we are getting a swift kick in the bung hole!

Its hard to believe it would ever run out. After all, there are still millions of people that still have jobs that pay into it every pay cheque (at least thats how it is here in Canada). The only way I can see it completely running out is if everyone in the country was unemployed.

If they can bail out the banks for trillions they can bail out the unemployed for billions. Sheesh. What's the big deal?
F.D.R.'s program of robbing from the working man to benefit Wall Street and the bankers is in full swing, and Ronald Reagan was one of its greatest disciples.
Indeed, the only thing which seems to have changed is that the evil has become more blatant. Mr. Krugman, the whole New York Times and the rest of the nation's media supported Henry Paulson's program to openly steal $750 billion from the American people and give it to Goldman Sachs. Paulson didn't even pretend to be helping the poor. He was just stealing from the average American to benefit the rich. Also, the character of the rich has changed. The Robber Barons of the late 19th century were great, productive geniuses. They got rich by increasing production, and they made the rest of the country wealthier with them. Henry Ford made himself rich by making a car so inexpensive that the average guy could afford to buy it. But today's rich get rich by having the government (via the central bank) manipulate stock prices up and thus bring them $billions in stock options. Socialists of yesterday, who violently hated the old rich, do not have any problem with today's rich, who are nothing but a bunch of parasites.

When and if unemployment payments quit coming people will either find jobs or start starving. Hungry people will do whatever they have to in order to survive, so I would expect outright looting to occur areas where the unemployed are no longer getting checks. Long story short as unemployment rises and more people lose benefits things will only get worse irregardless of what the talking heads say to save their own hides.

"He is richest who is content with the least".
(For once,a quote not from the bible! Surprised?!)...at least I don't think it is???
Well,what people will be doing is following whoever seems to offer them a better way! A Savior,if you will,...
Or,..."Here,just take this chip,we'll credit your account,and you will have money for food,...And here's a nice internment camp for you to live in,..??"
