Relax, Germany Is Going To Eliminate Unemployment

In what has to be one of the most... creative campaign promises in quite a while, Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier unveils the "Deutschland Plan," wherein he will eliminate unemployment by 2020. True, there are no specific term-limits attached to the position of Chancellor in Germany, but planning out to 2020 is an awfully optimistic reach.
Green jobs and health care are slated to create 4 million new jobs under the plan. Sound familiar?
