    Maxine, We don’t have an extra trillion right now. Could you fund this stimulus and we will pay you back right after we pay off the Chinese?

  • KOW

    HELL No.

    I could go for $200b into a fund for employers to hire the unemployed. They would get like $5.00 an hour in compensation for the hiring. They would pay the employee the balance of what ever they are paying them per hour.

    If they hire those on extended unemployment, pay $7 in compensation.

    At the end of the day, you get people back to being productive, they are now paying taxes was again, also, they would of been collecting unemployment, maybe $250 a week, if they are on extended unemployment, that is already coming out of the Feds pocket. So really, you are not paying any more, they are now working.

    Seems like this is something like what they did for those on Welfare back in the 90’s.

    Did she graduate high school?

    Best jobs program = repeal Obama agenda.

    I wonder if that idiot shoe scraping Maxine, will throw some of the cash she and her RICO oriented family has lifted form bank stock holders and the American people. What a bit of human(?) flotsam she is. Spend another $Trillion of someone elses money on the failed sytem of social welfare and handouts for the generally useless and “entitled”?
    Wrong part of the wrong century.
    By the way. Maxine is speaking in Democrat code. She is a **RACIST**, and everyone knows it.

  • Rock

    OK now, do I understand Maxzine a admitted Socialist wants a Capitalistic America, somehow that seems at odds with her politics. But then the woman is a brick or two short of a full load. But hey, maybe her bud Soros would like to help her people, it’s not as if he’s hurting in the wallet.


    hey maxine dumb beeeeotch…why don’t you call race pimp rev sharpton and race pimp rev jackson…see if they have the money to pull your PEEPS out of 27% unemployment…oh I guess it’s whiteys fault…stop breathing my air A$$WIPE

  • Bitter Clinger

    Jim; I don’t know how on earth you can force yourself to watch this garbage! It would gag a maggot. MTP is unwatchable. Soon Rev. Al will be hosting and it will be a perfect fit.

    This story (like so many others) takes me back to a post I read about 2 years ago on some forgotten site by some forgotten Progressive …

    “Can’t we all agree that it’s about dividing up the spoils ?”

    The answer is “NO!”

    NOTE to Maxine: There are no more spoils. You spent them all already.

  • KOW

    If you took the 14million that are unemployed, and you divided the $1trillion between them, it would be $71,428.57 each. Far cheaper than Obama’s last stimulus that was like $2million per job. Also, it would not be wasted on Green Energy, Unions and Obama cronies.

  • BradinMO

    Just send every American man, woman, and child $3,333.00 and let us do as we will. At least the government wouldn’t have to create jobs to mismanage the money 🙂

    “The far left politician was on Meet the Press this morning”

    I think that should say:
    “The far left politician was on the left leaning program Meet the Press this morning”

  • Neo

    Damn, just another “prirate politician.. and ugly as one.

  • Hobbitually conservative

    When I think of all the money she has sucked out of her constituency to keep getting re-elected and those poor people get nothing in return This woman is shameless.

  • Neo

    Let’s fund the next “stimulus” out of the Congressional pension fund

  • a former dem

    what I want to know is who the hell even watches these ignorant fools?

    bring on Santelli and I might tune in just to watch him, although Santelli would be muted no doubt by the NBC fools.

    millionaire Fried-man, why the hell would anyone care what this pathetic ignorant millionare lefty has to say. And oh yes, its not his millions, he didn’t earn it, at least I would respect that, its his wife’s. Lives on a multimillion dollar house, and tells the rest of America to cut back!

    wanna spread the wealth? I say you start, and spread that wealth to us all then!

  • translation: we(the democrats)need another trillion dollars vote buying scheme to get re-elected.

  • Rock

    I vote for #15s solution, let the SOBs give a little skin.

  • rbosque

    Maxine, if this were a true socialist country like the one you dream about, where would the one trillion come from? Because if we were, our GDP would go down the drain like other socialist nations.

    If you truly want jobs, we’d have to discard the socialist entitlement agendas you insist upon. otherwise, no you’re not going to get the jobs you demand using the Communist tactics you’re pushing.


  • DaveinPhoenix

    Spending taxpayers money is the sole purpose of Maxine Water’s existence on Earth and in Congress. Seriously doubt if she even cares about anything except getting re-elected yet one more time. So that she can spend even more taxpayer dollars on useless wasteful government programs. So that she can be re-elected by idiot people in her district one more time. So that….well, most of us have gotten the picture by this time.

  • JDStone

    Smoking too much of your constituents product Maxine,a little bit of fog on the brain? How about giving your hubby’s bank a call ( One United Bank).This woman is scum of the earth.

    We keep hearing that you need 150,000 new jobs every month to keep the unemployment rate even. Yet, we have been far less than that for months, and 0 new jobs last month, and the unemployment rate stays the same?

  • pjean

    Sure Maxine. Let me just grab my wallet and get that for you.

    When I heard her say this this morning, I just told my husband, “They just don’t get it”. The ideological differences we are seeing in this country are becoming more and more obvious. In our society today, economic growth comes from government regulation and oversight or individual entreprenuers and a free market. There used to be a time where Democrats and Republicans could find some common ground, but Progressives have made the role of government so oppressive that now it’s impossible to find compromise.

    Lady Thatcher said it best, “the problem with socialism is that they eventually run out of other people’s money.”

    How about no federal income tax withheld for one year for all Americans.

    There, I fixed it! 😛

  • L.E. Liesner

    More proof that liberalism is a mental disease. It seems that the more they talk the crazier they get. For the safety of the country she should be committed along with the rest of these nut case liberals.

  • aprilnovember811

    These aren’t sane or intelligent people. If they weren’t in Congress, they should be part of the homeless population because they don’t have the intelligence to provide for themselves.

  • rbosque

    Maxine’s district is in the heart of gang-banger central here in L.A.

    So consider the mental and moral state of the idiots who voted for her.

  • Hey, I have no problem with Maxine spending a trillion dollars in stimulus money. All she has to do is go around the House and Senate with a hat in hand and have her colleagues deposit whatever money they want. No taxpayer dollars though, just personal checks and cash.

    I bet she can’t even get enough money to buy some Girl Scout cookies….

    Maxine “I can’t be out of taxpayer dollars, the national checkbook still has checks in it” Waters.

  • Ipso Facto

    It’s always the low achievers who want socialism. It’s always the parasites who refuse to adopt the values of productivity who demand that their needs be met by the productive sector of society. They never see the conundrum. They want their utopian dreams it to be financed by the people who postponed gratification, embraced education, worked diligently, conformed to the values of the dominant culture and made something of themselves. The socialists NEVER want to adopt those value themselves, they just want to have all of the benefits without having to do what people normally have to do to get them.

    Thus, Obama wants “redistribution of wealth”. He and the other lazy, unproductive, socialists want to take the money from those who earned it, and they want to give it to those who never embraced the values of productivity that produced the wealth in the first place. They want the capitalists to finance their utopian socialist dreams.

    We should figure out a way for the people who want socialism to have it just where they live and to try to make it work ONLY WITH THE MONEY BROUGHT IN FROM THEIR OWN CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS.

    They would change their tune in a heartbeat if they had to rely only upon people like themselves to make it work.

    Get a rope, let’s make her worst nightmare come

    What are these employers exactly supposed to do with these subsidized employees then? If consumers aren’t buying anything what the heck is this excess labor supposed to do??

  • Doris Kearnes Goodwin stated that Obsma had a great recovery program, but abandoned it???? What the hell is she talking about?

  • SSBN 627(B)

    She’s gotta be smarter than I am. I work for a living.

  • Freddy

    That entire meet the press round table was bizarre. It was so poorly chosen that Gregory was the only one even mentioning conservative positions.

    The funniest part was where Mad Maxine’s wig claimed ALL the jobs created in Texas were government jobs! Even the lefties called out that wig for lying. The most likely reason was because it was red.

  • Alfred

    True Democrat hell!!!! She’s the next thing to Karl Marx and Lenin. For the life of me, what type of electorate puts a woman like her in office???? Mindless fools and wards of the state I presume.

  • BuddyG

    Jobs Program? More like Slush Fund!

  • KOW


    It dont matter what they do, do anything.

    Paint parking lot stripes.
    Sweep parking lot.
    Paint walls in factories.
    Pull weeds.
    Quality Assurance.
    Keep machines clean.

    I bet a lot of cities could use extra workers, but have cut out things they normally do, because of no funds.

    Point is, when you start cutting costs, these are some things you start with. Say Wal-Mart has their parking lot repainted normally every year, now it is every three years (just an example, I dont know how often they do have them painted). Weeds and trash in front of your business needs done weekly, now it is done monthly.

  • KOW

    I should also say, I dont expect Wal-Mart to have a painter on payroll, but they would hire someone to do it. Also K-mart, Lowes, who ever, then the painting company would have to expand his business and hire employees.

    Since I now know my labor is a little cheaper, I then can go into Wal-Mart of give them a better price to paint their parking lot. My cost of labor is cheaper.

    I am sure others can come up with better scenarios.

  • KOW

    I was just thinking about shopping, are the carts brought in as much as they were two years ago? Meaning, I use to always see employees getting shopping carts at Wal-Mart, do they do that as often? Maybe have one doing it instead of two?

    Does the car dealer wash their cars as often as they use to?

    Do the Car Wash business ave as many human driers as they use to? Do the Self Serve Car Wash bays look as clean as they use to?

    These are jobs cut. They are not great jobs, but it is about getting people off their rears and feeling better about themselves.

    Keynsian economics is being proven invalid before

    Our very eyes. Duh! Capitalism is the one true way,

    The white founders knew it to be so. Good for all,

    Not just white or black, ALL of us. When will some of

    The wrong thinking wake up and get a clue??!

    What part of “all of us”‘did you not understand.

    Maxine wants slavery of the people, not freedom.

    Got stranded this weekend, got assistance from those

    Of another race. America is good in her heart, just need

    To purge the devil out of the WH.

    Powder is dry

  • lol

    the libtards are desperate. they know zero is on his way out the door, so they are doubling down so they can crash the economy and have their dream of a global currency.

  • SEHaase

    Her bio says she used to be a Head Start Teacher?, Well the Nation may suffer but at least the children are safe.

  • Hey Maxine, try this: drug test and weigh everyone on food stamps. If they fail either, too bad. If they have jewelry, piercings, tatoos, iPhones, spendy cars, big screen TVs, custom wheels, flashy clothes, top of the line tenny shoes, or spendy hair dos, cancel their gummit issued welfare cards. Put those slugs to work. I’m getting tired of standing in line with an arm load of groceries, that I have to pay cash for, while watching leeches with full shopping carts paying with welfare cards. That, Maxine, should save the country a few billion dollars. Your people, Maxine, do not even pay taxes. And they usually drive off in better cars than mine.

  • There’s no need to spend “taxpayer” dollars. Confiscate it from the BIG OIL companies who take rather than pay. Suck Koch dollars like Scott Walker. There’s many ways to get it from the corporate leeches.

  • mg4us

    This is a perfect reason why this country needs term limits. . .

    And clear rules that these representatives should be tried for treason if they willfully or negligently steal and overspend the US budget. . what the DemocRATs never turned in a budget these past 18 months that they had full control of both house & Senate. . . that too should be grounds for impeachment, removal and treason.

    Time to start rounding up committed socialists and ship them to Cuba. . . one way!!

  • big L

    I takes a human 32,000 years to count to a trillion, as in 1…2…3..etc.
    Most of these socialists just toss out a figure and there is no correlation to reality. All these congressers are temporary. Even Maxine will eventually retire or be defeated,believe-it-or-not.
    But the debt and their laws are forever.
    Perhaps there should be a sunset rule on these laws and all this spending. It stops after two yrsand hasto bevoted on again. Or if the sponsor/backer is defeated, then the law terms out with him or her. We all have to renew our prescriptions when we run out. and aftera couple of renewals the doctor has to say “ok” to a renewal. Same with the laws.

  • RS

    Why not just give Maxine and her husband the trillion and let THEM parcel it out.

  • befuddled

    What a trillion dollars will buy?
    100 Green companies that will be bankrupt within a few years and employees living off unemployment. The manufacturing technology will be whisked away and its equipment sold for pennies to the Chinese. As well, the taxpayer will be left holding the bag wondering if any fraction of the loans will possibly be paid back. (Since these are political bogus companies to make the Dems look good, rather than actual for profit businesses, who cares.)

    Cut their credit cards and then cut off their hands. It’s time to get medieval on these profligate government types.

  • sfcuebist

    A few days ago us Tea Partiers were at an “event” put on by the Socialist Welfare Queen Rep. Lynn Woolsey, here in the republic of Sonoma County, California. Lots of talk just like this from her and her Marxist economist, the union flacks and other party hacks in the panel: the stimulus was too small and ill targeted by tax breaks to the wealthy (huh?!), the deficit hawks ruined the recovery, we will need another trillion, more gas taxes, govt is good, unemployment benefits have the highest multiplier effect (they always cite Mark Zandi from Moodys) while tax breaks have the lowest effect (right, supply side never worked uh huh), on and on ad nauseum. It was pretty tough to sit through. But it was a little preview as to what the Zero and the rest of the Progs on their Journolist will be pushing as their new improved genius jobs plan.
