IMF “WARNS” US.....say what? Wait..WHAT?
People who spend every penny the government hands to them the instant the government hands it to them will always be “in poverty” no matter how much of other peoples’ money the government confiscates and gives to them.
[It recommended raising the minimum wage and offering paid maternity leave to women to encourage them to work.]
Yeah, that’s the ticket. Now if we just had actual jobs to go with that.
Hope and Change.
1 in 7?
What Bolshevik comes up with these lies?
Obama and Company keep destroying jobs and business opportunities
we now have more adults out of work than anytime in American history
Obama’s Transformed America... IslamoNazi invaders in our communities.......and almost no jobs for American citizens
live in fear and a state of utter dependency
welcome to Obama’Hillary’and Co.’s great big Islamic slave labor camp for American citizens
We import poverty.
My husband lost his job about 4 years ago and no one came forward to ask him for another one - although he asked. He ended up working for Lyft and Uber and making a pittance while having our car ruined by obnoxious passengers and confused deer.
30 years ago under Reagan, he would have had multiple job offers but thanks to that monster, Obama, he had NOTHING offered to him.
Thankfully, God came through as He does on occasion and we are now free to retire and live happily ever after - unless Hillary gets in.
Lagarde is a very good example of what’s wrong in the world.
As some pointed out, there are other bad things in the world besides Lagarde, but most of those aren’t quoted in the news every 5 minutes.
The IMF - and its circle of statist, progressive central-planning friends and Central Banks ARE THE CAUSE of greater wealth inequality and poverty.
The IMF is owned and operated by these peckerwoods:
The IMF was originally set up and headed by Harry Dexter White. I think of him every time I hear “IMF.”
It is real nice having some foreign entity coming in and telling the nation how to solve its problems when the nations that impanel the entity is up to their eyeballs in economic problems.
This warning comes after 7 years of Barack Hussein Obama bringing us ‘shovel ready’ jobs.
I don’t appreciate a global entity sticking their nose in our business for any reason.
Christine Lagarde and her ilk can take a hike.
Well, golly, I guess they will punish us by going to get the bulk of their money somewhere else?!?!?!
This can’t be true! Didn’t Obama fix the economy and heal the planet like he said he would?
Where does Zimbabwe rank? Or N. Korea? Or Cuba?
