The Johnson-Angle ticket: Get a job, you bums!

Why do we keep comparing Wisconsin GOP Senate candidate Ron Johnson to Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle, the loose cannonTea Partier who's been mostly hiding from the media? Gee, I dunno:

SHARRON ANGLE: I would have voted no, because the truth about it is that they keep extending these unemployment benefits to the point where people are afraid to go out and get a job because the job doesn't pay as much as the unemployment benefit does.[ Face to Face with John Ralston, 6/29/10]

RON JOHNSON: “The extension of unemployment benefits actually prolongs unemployment....“When you give, when you continue to extend unemployment benefits, people really don’t have the incentive to go take other jobs, you know, they’ll just wait the system out until their benefits run out.” [Wisconsin Public Television, Here and Now on 6/11/10]
