Quickie: "The poor will work harder if we give them less."

Today's Quickie.

E.J. Dionne:

I think the evidence shows that when inequality gets out of hand (see 1929 and now), it’s a drag on the whole economy. Forgive me for noting that conservatives seem to believe that the rich will work harder if we give them more, and the poor will work harder if we give them less.

My friend and radio host, Nicole Sandler, and I refer to GOP Opposite World a lot on her show. Their take on "who would work harder if..." is a perfect example.

And the GOP will work harder if we give up everything... to give them and their sugar daddies even more.

That was today's Quickie. Will you still respect me in the morning?
