    If you steal mostly from the rich and only give it back to the poor you're taking from one person and giving to another. If you give the stolen money back to everyone it lessens the amount that was forcibly redistributed.

    For example if you steal $100 from everyone and then give back $100 to everyone, it's no big deal. But if you steal $100 from everyone and give it back to a select group you've now redistributed it.

    To answer @Madison320, I'm against giving back just the $100 stolen from everyone; I believe the thief would be required to pay back fourfold, which would be $400 to everyone.

    ...
    Which part of Rand’s position are you against?

    Unemployment Insurance is a State level insurance program, with your premiums paid out of your paycheck. If it is properly managed, there should be no additional costs.

    Only if a State can not pay out it’s obligations should the Federal government help out, preferably with a loan. If the Federal government demands that States pay out more than usual, then it is on the Federal government to chip in. And Rand would want to make cuts to make up for any new costs.
