GOP Message to the Poor: You have too much time on your hands

Republicans believe that people hit the hardest by the economic downturn are dependent and have too much time on their hands.

“We’re faced with the reality that government has created a dependent class of people, wrote Sen. Pamela Gorman in a FOX News blogpost.

“The entitlement class is scared, motivated, and loud. And, they have a lot of time on their hands while most of us are at work.”

The 7.8% of Arizonans who are currently unemployed might be shocked to know that people charged with representing them at the legislature look down upon them. In addition, last we checked, the First Amendment still provided for freedom of speech and peaceful assembly.

The Republican majority is becoming largely out of touch with Arizonans who have lost their jobs due to the downturn in the economy. They are now faulting Arizonans for having lost their jobs and typecast their ability to be angry that they are unemployed.

Notice from the GOP: Find a job, do not expect help while you are down and do not complain to us about being unemployed.
