The Hard (Wish We Were) Working Poor

The rebuttal to Casey Mulligan and others like him is very simple:

A work ethic doesn’t help much when there is no work to be had.

Policymakers need to get off their fat, lazy, pampered butts and do something to help to create the needed jobs. If Congress worked as hard on the unemployment problem as the poor do in their jobs, maybe we'd make some progress.
