REP. PAUL RYAN (R-WIS.): Not now, but in the future we're going to have labor shortages. We have 10,000 people retiring each and everyday in America when the Baby Boomers retire.

Even if its true....the correct answer is to tell people the truth: quit having abortions
He’s a G-man all of the way.
Protect the bosses, also.
Wish people could have seen through him long ago.
So Hire a Midget Today!
Suicide of the GOPe. Amazing. A year ago, I simply loved this guy and every thing I thought he stood for.
Has he converted to Mormonism yet?
Hire the unemployed then.
The answer is to increase the quota for legal immigration, not reward criminals.
This man is insane! 8% (really about 18%) unemployment and this idiot is talking about labor shortages.
The entire party has gone batsh** crazy.
I’ll vote for that!
Supply and Demand.
My wages go up.
My benefits go up.
My working conditions improve.
My boss will be nice to me.
What bargaining chip is being used to make “Conservatives” fall in line?
These clowns are so far removed from the real world it isn’t funny.
It really is NOT funny. Pathetic.
Give them all Obamaphones and EBT's and Food Stamps, and let them live in Section 8 housing while you're at it.
Another dumbass RINO, in the pocket of Lobbyists and Businesses that fund this immigration crap.
Oh no I have the answer!!!: SHIP MORE JOBS OVERSEAS!!!! /s
“Suicide of the GOPe.”
It’s amazing what a fat check from the OBL will do.
Ryan, Rubio and Christie were considered the rising stars for the GOP but in time they were shown to be what many suspected them to be: shills for the Establishment. At least on the issues one can still say that Sarah is right on track
There are only a handful of Tea Party candidates left. I may only pull a couple of levers in 2014.
I’m a little slow, what’s the real unemployment numbers? And we need an influx, (is that OK A.A. Cunningham?) of unskilled laborers?
Let’s just open the borders to everyone, especially those “fertile” Muzzies.
To think we all thought this idiot was smart.
“””Paul Ryan Defends Immigration Bill: “We’re Going To Have Labor Shortages”
I have been an employer for over 30 years. We don’t have a labor shortage. But we do have a very serious “ I want to sit on my ass and collect free stuff from the government instead of working” problem.
I could grow my business and take on much more work but the thought of looking for people to do it sickens me.
Hot damn, happy days are here again!
This guy is an idiot and likely on the payroll of those who hire dirt cheap illegal labor.
Profits regardless of consequences....
I wish them all the worst.
Whom the gods destroy, they first make mad.
um.... how about we put the 10% unemployed and welfare slobs to work?
Money under the table or outright bribes. Either one!
Private phone records, mail, and text messages recoded by the NSA.
This has always been a ridiculous argument.
Our economic system has a population, and these people do things, they interact, they get employed doing things for each other. As the population increases, jobs generally increase. Independent to that is the unemployment rate... for a given population, this rate has periods of rise and decline. And independent from that, governments can have their boot on the necks of the private sector, or governments can get the hell out of the way and allow a private sector to flourish.
Quit paying people not to work, and in no time you’ll have people begging for those “jobs Americans won’t do”.
May have to shoot a few rioters “pour encourager les autres”, but they do that to themselves on a regular basis anyway.
Don’t we have job shortages now?
Paul and his ilk put corporations and business above the Constitution and welfare of this land. I would expect nothing less from a TARPer.
He is smart. He’s also a sellout.
Real unemployment is on the order of 16% to 18%, to the best of my knowledge.
How can we have a labor shortage when no one can find work.
Way too many jobs and not enough people to fill them. This Obama recovery has left no one to fill all the jobs he has created. Let’s ship 10,000,000 muslims over here to fill all these jobs. Do the dems have Ryan video with a 14 year old boy or something?
Is there a single politician or judge out there that isn’t being blackmailed? I’m beginning to wonder.
He should stop the Insanity and start an exercise that gives him some balls. The republican party has too many eunuchs in it.
Stop killing the babies.
Purge the ranks of SSI for those who really need it. That would free up lots of labor.
Who the hell is Paul Ryan kidding?The Unemployment rate is sky-high. The Federal Reserve is trashing the value of the dollar and all of the hidden inflation is making it difficult for many retirement age people retire when they wish.
So where is this need for Illegal aliens to fill Jobs.It doesn’t exist.
Why is it that Republican’s seem to find it so easy to destroy their political careers?The democrats don’t seem to have that problem.
Is his hair on too tight?
Is there something in the water?
The US labor force participation rate is the lowest it has been in years.
On what planet does this guy live?
Do any of these guys have a clue????
No, importing the world's population to overwhelm our culture and destroy our nation has not benefited us, we need to fix whatever government monsters we created that is requiring us to import the masses from third world countries.
There is no reason for America to WANT to become Blade Runner.
labor shortage? The demand goes up. Wages go up.
That is the way it is suppose to work.
What an idiot.
And the hordes on fake disability as well.
Make them uncomfortable in their poverty. ~ Ben Franklin
“Stop killing the babies.”
Well, that would only have added about 70 million tax payers.
If one ponders it for a moment, it becomes apparent that the desire of monied interests for cheap labor to undercut the indigenous population is responsible for the largest mass settlements in history. Virtually everyone in South America except scattered indigenous tribes, are descendents of someone who either cut sugar cane, or someone who owned them.
