Meh. This was a point that Obama put forth when he was campaigning for POTUS. It was no secret, for sure.
I'm not even going to get into whether this is a real bill or if it will pass.
Obama said he wanted this, and he was elected by the majority of voters.
My opinion on it all? Doesn't matter. My fellow citizens have already said, via their votes, the majority of those that voted, they want this.
Whether I comply or not, that is another matter.
Oh, wait. Well, if we are going to continue to have massive unemployed folks around, might as well put them to work to get their relief funds. It
worked out well for my Granddad in the 1930's. He learned a new skill, using dynamite, which eventually got him a rather well paying job in the coal
mines. I just hope this bill will lead to actual skills being taught to people who will be able to put those skills to good use later. Skills that
will be useful in the 21st century. Somehow I just doubt it all, though.
