Via the Washington Examiner:
Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Penn., explained last night how unemployment could actually encourage people to vote for President Obama in order to secure welfare benefits such as food stamps.“Unemployment continues to drop and those people who are unemployed, they’re not going to be voting for the party who wants to cut their benefits — cut access to food stamps, cut job training,” Fattah, Senior Member of the House Appropriations Committee, told MSNBC’s Al Sharpton last night.
So, Obama ups the unemployment rate over 8%, watches 88 million people drop out of the workforce, and sits back as the votes roll in because those people no longer have to work to earn their money?
I’ve been wrong all along. Obama is a genius.
