the conservative economic mind

The unemployed can’t get work because there are five people needing work for every job opening.

Republicans say we should extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. Embrace laissez faire capitalism. Supply-side deregulation. Tax holiday on overseas earnings. Eliminate corporate income tax. Complete privatization of the money supply. Repeal financial reform. Eliminate new infrastructure spending. Government out of health care. Cut minimum wage. Move K-12 education to the private sector. Restrict Medicare and Medicaid to only catastrophic health events. Shorten unemployment insurance to encourage people to work. Return the gold standard. Privatize Social Security with cash grant to opt out.

Ideologues stumping to fix the problem without understanding what the problem is.
