First of all, this isn't a "cut."
It is the expiration of a temporary bump in the benefits that was given to get people over the recession.
Since the economy is now booming with unemployment dropping and all this new job creation, the government is now withdrawing that bump.
Secondly, we don't even have the money to give. We would have to borrow it to pay these benefits. Do we want to do that?
