Caveat Lectores on the Evils of Unemployment Benefits

There is a Harvard professor who is apparently a rightwing nut job tea bagger as well. Robert Barro writes in the Wall Street Journal recently that jobless benefits are the root cause for continued high unemployment rates.

That is kind of like saying that the reason so many people get sick is because they have insurance to pay for the treatment; therefore, we should eliminate healthcare insurance to make the world a healthier place to live.

Or… we could eliminate law enforcement and do away with crime. No more fire department would mean no more fires.

I think I’m gonna call a BULLSHIT foul on that theory.

And oh yes, have a nice Day?
