Don’t Give a Shit? There’s a GOP Talking Point for That.

GOP House leadership has given their rank and file talking points to try to justify their opposition to extending unemployment benefits without sounding dickish.

The talking points cite the “success” of ending emergency benefits in North Carolina last July, where the unemployment rate did, in fact, drop.  But that’s because people just gave up and stopped looking for work.  The labor participation rate in NC is the lowest it’s been in 37 years.

NC is actually a great talking point for Dems.

    Funny, I hear the Republicans making the argument that the economy hasn’t improved under Obama and the unemployment rate has only dropped because people stopped looking for work. So according to their logic Obama has been a huge success because 8 million people have given up looking for work. Yea, right. 🙂
