Really and truly. Hey, we’ve got a situation where, no matter how much money you throw at Democratic cronies, bankrupt Democratic-controlled states, and bloated, Democratic-voting sclerotic government agencies, the unemployment numbers keep getting worse! So what do you do?
That’s right! Three words, boychik:
The administration may also merge the Department of Commerce, the Office of the United States Trade Representative and some economic divisions at the State Department into a new agency, administration officials said. Possible names include the Department of Jobs or the Department of Competitiveness.
And there’s no way that I can beat what Allahpundit said:
The Department of Jobs is not to be confused with the Department of Labor, whose chief task these days is reminding Americans periodically why the feds are desperate enough to consider something as stupid as a Department of Jobs in the first place.
Except to note that if Orwell was around today he’d probably be a satirist. Well. More of a satirist, I suppose.
*Technically, it’s just renaming a Cabinet agency. Except that in real life they’d probably keep Commerce around to do the Census, then find things for the Department to do for the other nine years or so a decade. Because that’s how bureaucracies work.
