Obama Paying People to be Unproductive: Economy in Reverse

The President’s desire to extend unemployment benefits for an additional 26 weeks for persons seeking to “re-train” tells us how bad the economy actually is.

I predicted some time ago that unemployment would reach double digits by summer. We are almost there now. In fact, there are some who believe we are already there, if you take into account those who have stopped looking for work, and those who now are working part-time, who were full-time employees. The President is warehousing people instead of creating the opportunity for employment. Providing an additional 26 weeks of government support provides no incentive, (during the total of 52 weeks of benefits), to get back to work. Paying people to be unproductive never works.
