Huh?

There’s a reason they have no jobs.

This is to keep the unions happy and ready to regurgitate this money to the Democrat Party when Mitch McConnell comes up for re-election next year.

They're obviously trying to help Ashley Judd in her race against McConnell.

McConnell attacking Obama's EPA for what they've done to coal is one of the more potent issues he has.

I am so sick and tired of this welfare crap. Red states are just as bad as blue states if not worse.

This is really going to do a lot to help keep those “the sequester is going to kill minorities and women” stories on the front burner.

This grant...will provide eligible laid off miners and spouses with training and other services they need to compete for employment in other industries throughout the area, such as business services, construction and skill trades, energy creation and transmission, and health care.”

Incredible. Most all of the business services, construction and “skill” trades are all allied with servicing the coal business. Other industries? Big laugh.

This grant is nothing more than circular government onanism.

“Department of Labor Announces $5 Million in Emergency Grant to Help Laid-Off Kentucky Coal Miners….”

From work to permanent welfare.

Now, that’s the ticket!

Get ‘em all onboard the liberal entitlement train!

Retraining will help some people, but it’s hard to think of an industry—or a few industries—that are in need of enough employees to absorb all of those laid-off workers.

They should retrain them to administer government grant programs. The only people who will gain solid, long-term employment from this hand-out are the bereaucrats running the program.

How about retraining them how to build an oil pipeline?

Oh, wait...
