Republican debate hypocrisy

If the economy is so bad... especially because of Obama regulations, higher taxes, uncertainty from policies like Obamacare
why would all Republicans running for President oppose extending Unemployment Insurance for people past 40 weeks?
If there aren't jobs to be found, how can they be faulted?
How can UI be a disincentive if there aren't jobs to be found in the first place?

The fact is the economy is improving, but we still need extended UI, because even in a good economy there is creative destruction that makes some people and sometimes their profession itself expendable, and they need help in that process.
