And the unemployed aren't doing much better!

TODAY I have no choice but to humbly recognize Rep. Michele Bachmann, the Minnesota Republican,  for my occasional GALL ( Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy) Award with full  knowledge that based on her track record she is quite capable of winning another - and still another - by midnight tomorrow.  During an interview with a conservative talk show host, she said she strongly  opposed the stimulus package because...    
   "We're running out of rich people in this country."

yeah, it looks like there are no republicans thinking for themselves. all at once they're putting party before country...trying to make the efforts to get this country back on its feet fail with a big F. they're responsible for the last 8 years...
just the way i feel..

Apparently the unemployed are doing much better in Louisiana. Gov. Jindal says he will refuse the unemployment benefits chunk of the stimulus package because it will raise business taxes down the road. Another victory for ideology and a defeat for the non-working poor. Don't you just love these Dixiecans?

What are you talking about? I can assure you that we are not running out of unemployed people in this country.

Note to anonymous: You missed the point. When I said the unemployed aren't doing much better, it was a tongue-in-cheek jab at the poor rich people who are not faring well these days. .
