Utah refuses federal unemployment assistance

Utah Republican Senate President Michael Waddoups has backed Utah’s decision to refuse federal unemployment assistance money, saying all those danged lazy unemployed people need be more “self-sufficient,” a decision the The Salt Lake City Tribune calls “cruel and stupid.” (The Central Utah Project is a federal water project and is a fine example of welfare for the rich.)

This cartoon is from Randy Miller at the Utah League of independent Voters is about Utah, but really, it applies to many other states as well.
