Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) suggested Monday that domestic violence by men has increased due to U.S. joblessness.

Reid, speaking in the midst of a Senate debate over whether to pass a $15 billion package meant to spur job creation, appeared to argue that joblessness would lead to more domestic violence.

“I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Why? Men don’t have jobs.”

“Women don’t have jobs either, but women aren’t abusive, most of the time,” he said.

    So Harry Reid is now doing psychological evaluation on the effect of unemployment to marital relationship. I wonder where he got his PhD in Psychology or he is talking based on experience. Probably he used to beat up his wife every time after losing a fight during his boxing career.
