And just TRY to allowing the government to force unemployed people to show up to government work camps to collect their dole. OMG the "progressives" would shit their pants.
Which is unfortunate because I've long thought the Civilian Conservation Corps is an excellent model for unemployment benefits for the able-bodied. Interestingly there are a handful of similar state-run programs in California and Washington but these are generally limited to the 18-25 age-group. I think with a certain amount of "leave days" for job fairs and the like it would be an excellent program for Congress to resurrect. However I can see someone screaming about exploitation of minorities as they have a disproportionately high unemployment rate nationwide (12.6% unemployment as opposed to the 5.7% national average).
