  •  Economic triage (0+ / 0-)

    Consider the following thought experiment: say a car crash victim is brought into an emergency room with two body parts missing, the left leg below the knee, and the right index finger. Now, which should the medical professional treat most rapidly? Anyone knows the answer to this. Losing a finger is disfiguring and inconvenient, but losing a leg means the patient will bleed to death, right quick.

    Now, expand that to the economic situation we're in today: 20 million un (or under) employed (and four applicants for every job opening) versus a few thousand welfare cheats. Which is the finger, and which the leg? Again, we all know the answer here.
