Jeb Bush: "People Need to Work Longer Hours"

"Work harder and we will give you an extra
crust of bread with your gruel."

Millionaire tells Common People to Work

  • Ah, the Bush Dynasty really has that common touch.  It must have something to do with all those Wall Street Elites pouring mountains of special interest cash into the Bush campaign.  A government of oligarchs.
  • Jeb also wants to raise the retirement age to collect your own Social Security that you paid for.  Work till you die.  The new 2016 GOP campaign slogan.

(ABC News)  -  Today, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who as of-late has gone relatively gaffe-free, uttered a phrase that may not go over too well with the constituency he seeks to reach. During an interview that was live-streamed on the app Periscope, Bush told New Hampshire’s The Union Leader that to grow the economy, “people should work longer hours.”
He was answering a question about his plans for tax reform and responded:
“My aspiration for the country and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see. Which means we have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours” and, through their productivity, gain more income for their families. That's the only way we're going to get out of this rut that we're in.”
Already the Democratic National Committee has pounced, releasing a statement that calls his remarks “easily one of the most out-of-touch comments we’ve heard so far this cycle,” adding that Bush would not fight for the middle class as president.
