Some of the Insanity from the Left that has comes through in the last couple of days…
Maxine Waters wants a TRILLION Dollar Jobs Program. I think Maxine should be made to stand on the floor of the House and COUNT from 1 to 1 Trillion.
The USPS wants a 5.5 Billion dollar bailout, break their union contract and lay off 125,000 workers and close boatloads of Post Offices.
I say CLOSE 80% of the Federal Government for the rest of the year.
Democrats/Progressives are locked into Keynesian economics for one reason – it buys votes. And they are spending taxpayer funds, not their own. To them it’s a win situation even though it doesn’t help the economy or reduce unemployment. It does, in fact, just the opposite – more debt, higher taxes, less disposable income, fewer employed, and the list goes on.
Some Keynesians can’t be helped because they believe in it. They are unable to contemplate any alternative. They are like the barber-doctors of old who bled their patients to remove the ‘bad’ humors from the body and kept doing it until the patient recovered his health. If the patient died it was because they didn’t bleed the patient enough.
However, Waters supports it because she makes money off it, and it gives her power and status, despite the damage it causes to society and people.
Democrats/Progressives/Liberals have told us:
Food stamps are good for the economy
Unemployment checks are good for the economy
Natural disasters are good for the economy
A new terrorist attack may help boost the economy
Taxing the “rich” would be good for the economy
Borrowing more money (from China) would be good for the economy
Subsidizing private companies that are otherwise unprofitable is good for the economy
and if you don’t agree with them . . . you must be a racist.
Maxine, why bother with all these programs and bills? Let’s just do what you really want. Take all the money we can from anyone who works and just give it away to everyone you think deserves the money. What could possibly go wrong?
Finally, this is what three years of Obama – the VERY BEST the Democrats have ever had to offer – has given us:
US of A in Economic Depression
Downgraded US Credit Rating
Ignore the War Powers Act
Gas, Food and Clothing Prices Skyrocketing
Five Wars, One with a Record Death Toll
Raiding the Private Pension Fund to Avoid the Debt Ceiling
Lost 800+ Seats for His Own Party
44 Million Americans on Food Stamps
Over half of the States Suing to get out of Obama Care
One in Four Mortgages under Water
ATF Gunrunning Scandal
Please Keith Olbermann, “Reverend” Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Jimmy Hoffa Jr. Continue to spin this disaster of a Presidential Administration that it is all good for everyone and that it is of course Bush’s fault. Let me ask all of you I am sure you have all started a job that had a predecessor that made mistakes when they had the job. Three years into the job did you blame the predecessor for the environment your place of work was presently in years later? My guess is if you did you were either shown the door shortly thereafter or promoted….
Do you want to know what we Conservatives stand for?
