We need to tax and spend our way out of all the damage Bush did. Now that America is back (???), we need to keep doing it. All of us useful idiots have no problem swallowing that, right?
The Iranian princess, Valerie Jarrett, repeating some Pelosi talking points, said that unemployment stimulates the economy because unemployed people (who would rather have a dang job making real money) spend it. See how crazy these people are?
The tax money and the funny money printed by our feds is stolen from us and much of it is wasted and recycled by the government. Then some is given to some unemployed to spend. Are you stimulated yet? What do you think they spend it on? Furs? Diamonds? Roman holidays? Or is it on fuel and food which do not count in the inflation numbers!
Maybe they should make the unemployed drive Volts or Teslas so the dopey cars have some value.
The government doesn’t have any money. They stimulate nothing. They add a middle man and waste it while they are playing around with it.

Being such an insult to the millions of Americans now seeking work, Jarrett’s claim has attracted plenty of attention. But it’s nothing new for this White House.
Last summer, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney lectured Wall Street Journal reporter Laura Meckler for not knowing it “as part of the entrance exam” that jobless benefits are “one of the most direct ways to infuse money directly into the economy because people who are unemployed and obviously aren’t running a paycheck are going to spend the money that they get.”
Carney contended that “every place that that money is spent has added business, and that creates growth and income for businesses that leads them to decisions about jobs, more hiring.”
So add to the Orwell list of government-dictated absurdities, “unemployment is employment.”… Read here: Investors.com
