    but but Obama told us if we spend all this money we would have a recovery. NaNcy P told us that Obamacare and unemployment were job bills.

    I see the problem, You forgot to add Obama’s magic green jobs. That is what is saving us. Come on get with the propaganda. oh and you forgot to blame every R since Reagan.

    Drawn wrong; a cycle repeats, by definition.
    There is no path between 7. and 1., only a dead end.
    As long as 6. and 7. pay better than 1, this will not be a cycle.

    I would have put a dual arrow at step 4: one called “laid off” and the other saying “job sent to China”.

    @Genome Project

    Well at least you’re not race baiting today that is an improvement.

    Wrong. That’s been going on for quite a while, well before Obamacare was even on the table. Why? Because you don’t have to give benefits to part-time employees- and there’s plenty of tricks you can pull to make them give you a full-time employee’s amount of work.
    But hey, it pads the CEO’s pockets, and that’s apparently all that matters.

    And there’s some people who’d like to cut out steps 2 and 3, and replace “food stamps/disability” with “homeless/dying on the street”.

    Cutting government spending destroys jobs. We’ve proved it now. The recoveries under Reagan, Clinton, and Bush all involved government spending. And the Obama stimulus brought unemployment down, though it has long run out and won’t be renewed by the GOP house. You can be sure that increased spending would have happened under Romney, because the GOP cares only about party, not country.

    While I don’t disagree the process is broken, I don’t believe people like to stay in groups 6 or 7, regardless of the pay. There are Lebowskis who will buck the system sure. But most people want to work for a living. They’d probably take the part time job if there was one. But there aren’t. So why bother?

    I will admit my response is based on anecdotal evidence and a perhaps idealistic view of human nature.

    But it takes 18 months to two years to get disability and the local law firm charges $6,000 to help.

    Where is Obama a Socialist? He is a straight up Capitalist.

    Number 7 is only temporary. And it is hard to get registered as “disabled” unless you really are. I know, I am. Soon he will not have that tv unless it is paid for, he will be reduced to getting crap jobs if they are around. Lose the house or apartment will come soon too.
