DISGRACED White House Economist Calls For More Spending in Farewell Address

No thanks.

White House Official Christina Romer wants more stimulus.
This is the same official who just last year claimed the Trillion dollar stimulus was working.

Some leftists never learn…

In her farewell address today, disgraced White House economist Christina Romer will call for more spending.
Reuters reported:

Departing White House economist Christina Romer called on Wednesday for further steps to stimulate the U.S. economy, saying high budget deficits should not be an excuse for allowing the unemployed to suffer.

“We have tools that would bring unemployment down without worsening our long-run fiscal outlook, if we can only find the will and the wisdom to use them,” Romer said in excerpts from a speech she will deliver later at the National Press Club.

The remarks come as a recent raft of data have suggested the U.S. economy has begun to falter after signs last spring that seemed to show it was on the mend.

The reports have put pressure on President Barack Obama’s Democrats ahead of November 2 elections that could shift the balance of power in the U.S. Congress.

Obama said this week that he and his advisers were discussing ideas to help boost the recovery, but his spokesman said these would likely be targeted measures.

Good-bye, Christina.

Romer obviously missed Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Michael Mullen’s speech last week where he announced that debt is the top national security threat.
