This is such a disjointed path of non-logic that it’s really pretty hard to believe. But, no one ever accused a liberal of making sense:
Building the case for a brand new jobs-creation bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says most Americans would not mind inflating the already-gaping deficit in exchange for more jobs.
The California Democrat said on a conference call Tuesday that Americans could “absorb” the hit to the federal budget, and she argued that their biggest complaint is not that the deficit is big — it’s that they’re not seeing any benefit in return for increasing the U.S. debt load.
That’s right, folks: she admits that she knows Americans are royally pi$ed about getting zero benefit from the massive government ‘stimulus’. But…instead of finding her way to the logical — and correct — conclusion that the government needs to STOP WHAT THEY ARE DOING, she runs in the direction of another ‘stimulus’:
Despite the $787 billion stimulus package passed in February, unemployment climbed to 10.2 percent in October. While critics cite the jobless rate as a sign that the stimulus has failed, Pelosi argues that the federal government is just not trying hard enough.
“We have to shed any weakness that anybody may have about not wanting to be confrontational on this subject for fear that we’d be labeled not sensitive to the deficit,” Pelosi said, in a recording posted by Think Progress.
“The American people have an anger about the growth of the deficit because they’re not getting anything for it.”
So, you know, naturally, we should do another stimulus just like the first one. Except maybe bigger, because the first one ‘didn’t do enough’.
Gateway Pundit helpfully reminds us of the situation that the first stimulus has helped put America in:
These people are flippin’ geniuses, aren’t they?
There’s my two cents.
