Jeb Bush Thinks You Don’t Work Hard Enough

Cenk Uygur | (The Young Turks Video) | – –

“Jeb Bush has an interesting idea on how to boost economic growth: people should just work longer hours. Despite the fact that US employees work on average 47 hours per week, more than most of the industrialized world, Jeb Bush thinks Americans have it too easy. He later tried to backpedal, saying he meant part-time workers, but not very convincingly. TYT host Cenk Uygur breaks it down. Do you not work long/hard enough? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Wednesday that in order to grow the economy “people should work longer hours” — a comment that the Bush campaign argues was a reference to underemployed part-time workers but which Democrats are already using to attack him.

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.”

  1. The TWO-BUSH-THREE-WARS dynasty must remain history.

    And here we were being told Jeb was the “smart one.”

    No more Bush in our White House!

    • Dubya should remain history…, but only after he has had his world tribunal session for crimes of war, crimes against humanity, creating torture black sites known for sleep deprivation, force feeding, warterboarding, prisoners’ forced strainuous painful positions for hours at a time, etc. While prosecuting Dubya, why not accompany him with Dick the Déchaîné and their friends of terror and easy fast industry of war and reconstruction money.

  2. I don’t know where Cenk Uygur came from or even who he is, actually. I suppose I’ll have to look it up, but his work is an immense contribution here. Thank you, Juan, for introducing him here.
