“I believe it’s immoral for this country to have as a policy extending long-term unemployment to people rather than us working on creation of jobs.”
Congressman Pete Sessions (R-Texas)
Um, Pete, this isn’t a case of “rather than” — you can, and should, do both. Because while you’re “working on” creating those jobs, people need to eat and pay their rent.
But the thing is, the GOP has shown no interest whatsoever in creating jobs because that might make the anti-Christ Obama look good and help the demon Dems in 2014. Your party is interested only in making the economy as stalled and sluggish as possible, which means making as many American families as possible suffer.
There’s a word for that. I believe it’s immoral.
