Rebuttal to Obama's potential plan to extend unemployment benefits

As I blogged about yesterday, Barack Obama is considering providing unemployment insurance payments to those who are underemployed (working part-time instead of full-time).

Today, the Weekly Standard published a blog critique of such a plan stating that it would actually provide incentives for people to stay unemployed/underemployed and consequently raise unemployment levels.
