Posted on 04/27/2012 9:09:51 PM PDT by John Semmens
The normal expectation would be that high unemployment would hurt the President and his fellow Democrats come the November elections. Not so, says Representative Chaka Fattah (D-PA). Every person who's unemployed or on welfare knows that it's the Democrats who will look out for them. Fattah asserted.
The flaw in the GOP's reasoning is the mistaken notion that putting more people to work is what voters want, Fattah said. What everyone wants is a paycheck. They'll work for it if they have to. But getting one without being forced to work for it is the type of total freedom that the Democratic Party has stood for the last 80 years.
Freedom of speech and freedom of religion get a lot of publicity, but I would guess that freedom from toil is a benefit more prized by your average American, Fattah contended. Our Party is the one that recognizes that. Our Party is the one voters can trust to deliver it.
In support of his case, Fattah credited Democrats for relieving 50% of the population from paying federal income taxes. If we add the 8% who're unemployed to the 50% who're exempt from paying taxes I think we have the makings of a Democratic landslide next November.

Is it too late to quit working and accept salvation?
I’ve been so wrong for so long.
That's pure genius, JS.
They consider welfare total freedom? Freedom from what? Work?
this is the best one yet
Yes, “freedom from toil.” It was right there in the article.
Not falling for it!
You may be right, but I’m not falling for your play!
LOL, Good one John. Love it. Thanks for the ping.
Good one. Such a fine line!@
Suddenly, it’s all clear to me now.
Up is down, eh John?
What a world...
Freedom from toil, and the right to mind your neighbor's business. Most people will gladly trade their freedom for those two.
I’ll bite. What is a Chaka Fattah?
Actually, good point. Repubs just talk about lowering taxes. Dems have lowered taxes for millions of people just in the last three years alone.
You have your finger on the pulse, John! You ever thought of running for office? (LOL!)
The evil of this party is mind blowing isn’t it. What they are selling is slavery to the DemoKKKrat party plain and simple. Like chickens in a cage trained to peck a button for a pellet that’s how the want the people to live.
I live right across the street from a welfare motel and you won’t see a more miserable looking people on this earth. They get just enough to barely survive but not enough to live like human beings and that’s exactly how the DemoKKKrats want it. They want people desperate, as SLAVES to do their bidding.
But that’s what the DemoKKKrat party has always been about hasn’t it. Oh sure you’ll get some talking about the virtues of this country, but in the end they always side with slavery and oppression. It’s just an incredibly evil evil party and until people are truly educated and made aware of that fact, they will never stop electing these sick SOBs into office.
It may be a satire article but everything in it is pure truth on how DemoKKKrats run.
