No such thing as a dumb question? Well ...

A new court ruling says Wisconsin's W2 program must provide benefits to people in the program who are employable but can't find jobs.

Paul Soglin gets it:
Think about it. It helps end poverty. Assuming the state does not want to increase the welfare rolls, people who want to work will be given an opportunity to work for a living.

As for increasing the welfare rolls, that is not a problem. The decision does not say "put them on the dole." It clearly says, "provide for job opportunity." Those offered meaningful work who turn it down, do not get welfare.
You know who doesn't have a clue, asking:
Isn't this called "unemployment"?
Don't they already have benefits for that?
As she would say, Umm, no.


  1. This McBride person is about as sharp as a sack of ballpeen hammers. I don't know how you can stand monitoring her drivel day in and day out.

  2. Is there going to be a Best-Of?
