Congress is about as concerned about unemployment as it is finding a cure for laziness

Unemployment hit our country like an avian flu epidemic more than five years ago and it’s still gnawing on Uncle Sam’s ribs.

We’ve lost more jobs than American Idol has viewers.

Evidently Congress hasn’t gotten the memo because its members still have jobs – proving that life can be more unfair than a crooked dice game in a church narthex.

A hearing today on long-term unemployment held before the 19-member Joint Economic Committee began with just a single lawmaker in attendance — Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).

You would think that those who have a job would do the job.

But politicians don’t work that way.
