The United States continues to suffer from a terrible economic slump, with unemployment at persistently high rates. U.S. Representative Mike Coffman, from Colorado, proposed a solution to the problem yesterday: Put more Americans out of work.
Coffman introduced H.R. 6134 to the House of Representatives yesterday. If passed, Coffman’s legislation would lay off huge numbers of people working for the federal government, requiring them to accept “a period of mandatory unpaid leave”.
Democrat John Flerlage is campaigning to replace Representative Coffman in this year’s election.
