Paul Ryan’s Laughably Unserious Employment Projections

Paul Krugman creates this chart of the unemployment projected by the flim-flam math in Paul Ryan’s plan. As Krugman notes: “Except briefly during the Korean War, the United States has never achieved unemployment as low as Ryan and co. are claiming. The Fed believes that the lowest unemployment rate compatible with price stability is between 5 and 6 percent — that is, twice what Ryan is claiming he will achieve.”

Seriously, all you people saying this is serious? Shut up.
