Whose job, exactly, does it save? The guy at the unemployment office?
I keep thinking that sooner or later the masses of Americans are going to wake up to the bullshit that the Obama administration is shoveling, but since they’re getting checks, I guess they don’t need to.
Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis made her ubiquitous post-NFP appearance on CNBC this morning and spouted the usual propaganda. However, while discussing how wonderful the ATRA was, the seemingly slap-happy Solis noted how great the fact that emergency unemployment benefits were extended for millions of people was – and that thanks to that (and the magic of the Keynesian multiplier), millions of jobs were saved. So, to sum up, paying people not to work, saved millions and millions of jobs? Indeed America, indeed.
