No people, no problem

Mitt Romney's plan for dealing with unemployment. Because if the unemployed don't get unemployment benefits and become homeless and starve to death, then they're no longer unemployed, so we don't have an unemployment problem anymore.

Somewhere, Stalin's ghost is smiling.

  1. Romney states his case that the extended unemployment insurance contained in the compromise will keep those out of work from looking for new jobs.

    I just love this old canard. Give them barely enough money to eat, (never mind rent) & they'll sit at home all day living high on the hog at the government's expense.

    It makes perfect sense.

  2. Let's see, 14 million unemployed, 4 million job openings... uhm, yeah, what are those other 10 million unemployed supposed to do? Oh right, no people, no problem. So said Stalin -- and, apparently, Mittens :).

  3. Romney's republican unemployment plan is similar to their healthcare plan.

    First don't get unemployed.

    Second, if you do, starve or freeze to death quickly.

    Republican Moral: The dead don't need jobs. (Just like to poor don't need money.)

  4. Is the Mittster wearing holy mormon underwear?
    Would that underwear protect US from unemployment?
