Posted on 12/06/2012 1:36:50 PM PST by Olog-hai
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said unemployment insurance benefits act as a safety net for our whole economy, adding that they simultaneously constitute probably the most important stimulus for the economy.
During a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, a reporter asked Pelosi why she has not brought unemployment benefits into the debate over the so-called fiscal cliff.

Unemployment benefits and other welfare programs drive up the cost of labor as the government directly competes with the private sector for labor.
Haven’t they stimulated the economy enough already?
She might possibly be the stupidest person on the face of the Earth.
It's called confiscation & redistribution of my earned income.
The GOP needs to sound the alarm that taxing the 'wealthy' won't put a dent (let alone a scratch) in the national debt, so.. What is the REAL reason for the Dems insistence on higher taxes? To undermine small businesses and to destroy the private sector in America. THAT is their agenda.
If Jobless Benefits are One of the Most Important Stimuli for the Economy, then we should ALL GO ON UNEMPLOYMENT!!!!!
That would solve all our ills.
Dumber than a box of rocks.
You know, my socks drying out and flappin’ in the breeze make more statements of common sense than Pelosi has in her life time.
Hmm.. so if the government let us keep our own money and not strangled us with regulations, we would have kept our companies open and not fired those people.
Note to Nancy Pelosi: Your ass must be awfully stimulated with your head up being up there like that. “Blah, blub-lah, blub-lah...”
Our side needs to remind them that extending unemployment benefits stimulates joblessness. Lowering taxes stimulates the economy.
Joblessless could EASILY be fixed. Just DEFUND the EPA. They are a ‘STICK IN THE SPOKES’ to American progress. The EPA is a TOOL of the U.N. for suppression of America. Linkage of all countries to form a World Government requires that American Exceptionalism be obliterated. Lisa Jackson is doing a fine job of that. It’s not coincidence that a black woman heads that Agency. She gets the same ‘race card’ shield to protect her from criticism as 0bama does, and that woman he chose to LIE for him on Benghazi too (Obama chose Susan Rice to LIE about Benghazi because people find it difficult to accuse a black female of LYING). It’s all about getting the ‘protected classes’ to do the dirty work of killing America. It’s worked wonders for 0bama, right? Bow to the all mighty ‘protected class’ cards! George Soros and the U.N. knew this tactic would work and it IS.
Yes, China has been just suffering with their seemingly unending stream of double-digit growth for decades all with absolutely no unemployment benefits
JOBS, actual non-service, high paying jobs will lift all boats.
Keeping people in government programs giving them a pittance of what they USED TO EARN is akin to throwing them cake.
” Its all about getting the protected classes to do the dirty work of killing America. Its worked wonders for 0bama, right?”
It’s worked wonders on the entire free world.
I get it we pay people for a long time not to work and this makes them really try hard to find a job. Ya Right!!!
Hunger is the best motivator.
Hunger is a better stimulant for jobs than unemployment
