Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) suggested Monday that domestic violence by men has increased due to U.S. joblessness.Now, domestic violence among unemployed men may well have a tendency to increase (are gals immune, incidentally?), but since the previous "jobs" bill did not lead to a noticeable increase in employment, what's different about this one?
Reid, speaking in the midst of a Senate debate over whether to pass a $15 billion package meant to spur job creation, appeared to argue that joblessness would lead to more domestic violence.
“I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse ["at his home?", Jim Hoft asks]. It has gotten out of hand,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Why? Men don’t have jobs.”
