    Default After the Welfare State

    A book from CATO - Edited by Tom Palmer - Jameson Books, Ottawa, IL - Interesting read - I've posted this for Luvy, so she can be somewhat more informed prior to her ranting about leeches .

    This sorta follows the idea of the short answer as to why Romney lost:


    Why Romney Lost


    Romney said, "When I'm elected, I will put Americans back to work."


    and 51% said, "Screw That!!"

    He also called 47% of the country lazy. You just can't bad mouth people that you want to vote for you. He figured there were enough of the elite in the country that would vote for him and that would override the peasants that he talked badly about. How was "he" going to put people back to work? He was going to be the president, not a CEO that could tell people to start hiring. Unless he was going to create a whole bunch of government jobs. then he could put people back to work

    How was "he" going to put people back to work? Anxiously awaiting the explanation.

    He was going to put people back to work by taking them off welfare, no more freeloading, no work no money.

    Fair enough. what jobs was "he" going to create? If the HR people see that someone has been on welfare and has no work history, you really think they are going to hire them?

    I'm not going to pretend I know the state of economy everyplace but here low level jobs are available, but people aren't going to go out and work for $7 hr when they can sit home and collect $5 an hour watching TV, add to that fuel assistance, free medical, wic, food stamps I would imagine one gets by just fine by not working. I applaud Romney for going after these people, I just wish he'd go after the corporate welfare recipients with the same vigor (never going to happen). I agree with you in the fact that the Republicans have never came out with a plan, besides saying that they had a plan.
