The article features the proposal to tax unemployment benefits. Martin Feldstein, a Reagan administration principal economist, noted a few years ago that at a certain salary level, a Massachusetts taxpayer who lost his job would, during the first year, bring in 93% of the post-tax income he made while working. Among the unemployed in America include those who cannot find work and those who cannot find work they are willing to do. There are also 8 million illegal aliens in America.
