GOP Claims Liveable Wage Will Hurt the Economy and Demoralize Workers

Greed

GOP has an interesting way of looking at real problems through a fact free fantasy lens.  Consider unemployment insurance for example:

GOP Fact Free Fantasy Lens:  “When you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks, you’re causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy. And it really – while it seems good, it actually does a disservice to the people you’re trying to help.” — Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 12/08/13

GOP Wants to HelpVERSUS

Fact Based Reality:  “Long term unemployment is bad. But unemployment insurance is not causing it. If you’re looking for the real causes, you might look in the mirror, and around the room during a meeting of your fellow congressional Republicans. Because Republicans blocking any meaningful job creation measures—that’s really doing a disservice to jobless Americans.”– Laura Clawson in the Daily Kos 12/09/13
