Get a Job
Why must the unemployed refuse to help repair the economy?
The Bush administration remains both clueless and callous:
During today’s press briefing, White House press secretary Dana Perino suggested the Bush administration would oppose any effort to extend jobless benefits — a stance the White House has taken before. She explained their position by saying, “we want people to be able to return to the workplace as soon as possible.” The suggestion was that extending benefits somehow prevents people from returning to work.She concluded by saying that “the best way to help” the economy and unemployed people is for unemployed people to simply “get back to work.”
