This sort of thing should get people motivated to do something about our economy, but it doesn't.
If you don't get people working, you won't get the number of people using foodstamps to go down. And the economic benefits of getting people back to work are staggering--more money to support state and local governments, more money paid into the system through sales taxes, and more people contributing to the economy in positive ways. This should be the number one goal of government.
Instead, we have lethargy and obstructionism. It's ridiculous. How anyone could vote Republican is beyond me.
The Obama Administration is the only hope for recovery. The Republicans want to throw people to the wolves.
