Have you ever heard a person say, “When Harcourt loosened the requirements on EI, suddenly 10% of the province was on welfare,” and use this as evidence of how lazy and immoral people are?

I heard that the other day, and I was intrigued that the person never considered it might be evidence that times were really bad and the EI expansion was self-evidently warranted.

This is assuming the person didn’t pull that figure out of thin air, because 10% sure is a nice, round, shocking figure…
