  •  Their Idea of Economic Stimulus (1+ / 0-)

    is that if they withhold unemployment checks long enough, starvation will stimulate the "lazy" to find work even in an economy that lacks jobs.

    Their attitude is: Unemployment is a "laziness" problem, not an economic one.

    Republicans will learn that all those "lazy" Americans won't be too lazy to vote in November.  Then Republicans will see how Democrats and Independents celebrate Thanksgiving in a meaningful way.

      or anyone they know has actually had to live off an unemployment check.  It's less than what you were used to living off of while employed.  

      Jeez it's a struggle.  When I hear them say that Unemployment makes people lazy it makes my ears burn....
