    This is the insanity that lives in the WH, and the reason nothing will get fixed.

    This is from Obama playbook, Pelosi says the same thing. It is the left’s problem when they say things enough times they will believe. They being the mindless sheep that voted for this.

    Well, actually she is right. If a benefits system takes away 100 dollars from a wealthy person and transfers it to a poor person, spending increases, as the poor person spends that money immediately, creating demand for goods and services and thereby jobs. The wealthy person, would just keep the money on a bank account, or worse yet, a swiss bank account.

    Hopefully, Americans will look at the CBO figures or websites like Zero edge.

    I do believe facts don’t lie and the more unemployment the more entitlements and the less productivity. And the longer Americans stay on unemployment they will have a harder time getting any job with school or training.

    It will take years to get these Americans back on track to being a productive individual.

    Jarrett has a job, hopefully she too will be standing in the unemployed line and very soon.

    Then let’s see her chickens come home to roost.

    Perhaps its time to take our kids out of the elitist colleges and start building up the schools that promote Christian values and our founding principles? Our kids are getting dumber and dumber. Our taxes for these colleges hasn’t done squat in their education, and it shows.

    It’s time to cut off the source. If it’s a fight they want, then a fight they will have!!!!! It’s time to stop sacrificing our kids on the alter of their ‘marxist piety’.

    The economy will be stimulated when Obnama and his friends become unemployed.

    The wealth of the nation measured 10 years from now will be remarkably less as a result of the socialist policies of WON WTF. The indebtedness, taxation for redistribution, prohibiting us manufacturing, preventing Us production of energy, social justice and just plain thieving in the Solar panel and like activities will take years to unravel.

    Soup lines cause people to stand up and not sit. So soup lines are a healthy alternative to sitting.

    If we ever get out of this economic mess, it will be in spite of Obama and his administration.

    One big reason Democrats cannot run this country is that they never learn from their mistakes. And that is mainly because they never admit that they make mistakes — and how would they know? the Liberal media reports their mistakes extremely seldom, and never makes a fuss over them — so how can they learn from their mistakes? At least we can learn from our mistakes: never elect a Democrat, and don’t believe the Liberal media.

    I have lost track of how many in the WH and the left side of congress have made the same claim.

    Truth,science and logic need not apply here they have stupidity to sell to a base they need to try to get reelected.

    Except that it wasn’t 100 dollars, but 30K, and it meant that the kitchen project, which had been planned for 3 years, did not get done. This actually happened, and it tanked the housing construction market.
