Stevieslaw: The Culture of Dependency and Term Limits

XXXX, the secret identity of XXXX asked me to comment on a report by msnbc in which Rand Paul—not to be confused with Ron Paul—not to be confused with Paul Ryan—not to be confused with Ayn Rand said that unemployment benefits for jobless Americans should not be extended beyond 26 weeks, as it does a “disservice” to the workers. “When you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks, you’re causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy,” intoned Rand.
While we are putting an end to this “culture of dependency” by allowing people to starve and lose their homes, we might as well go after that other group on the perpetual government dole—Congressmen and women. It would be one thing if the current congress were doing something, but as prestigious a group as the Penn State Lampoon (yes, I made it up) has proven that a gaggle of geese would be more productive and provide better representation.
That said, I believe we should limit to one term any member of Congress that mentions the phrase “culture of dependency.” Those members not qualifying for reelection should be able to live nicely on 26 weeks of unemployment insurance.
