    I cannot believe this one. Click above for the article. Mike.


    White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett has adopted a stance on unemployment that is sure to infuriate many, arguing that it stimulates the economy because people who receive unemployment checks are going out and spending them, reports The Weekly Standard.


    “Even though we had a terrible economic crisis three years ago, throughout our country many people were suffering before the last three years, particularly in the black community. And so we need to make sure that we continue to support that important safety net.

    This is a perfect example of liberal logic.

    I heard Nazi Pelosi say about the same thing a couple of years ago, but she said that for ever dollar of unemployment two dollars are created

    Only an idiot could come up with that

    Guess it fits

    Whats sad is that the media buys this crap without challenging her. They lie through their teeth and no one says anything. Just let a Republican say something and their on them like a cheap suit..

    What else could you expect from one of Obama's close friends?

    I can think of nothing better, then, to REALLY stimulate the economy and make ALL liberal politicians unemployed.

    Catpower, pelosi was correct on her figure you just misunderstood her. For every dollar of unemployment given out, $2 is added to the national debt.

    Jarrett's been interested in the unemployed ever since Jughead was unable to buy her his old senate seat from Blagojevich. Fortunately for her, there was a "make work" job waiting at the White House.

    Lived in the Chicago area for 53 years in the old Daly/Jayne Byrne years. This creature had a bad rep even back then. She was always being stupid & a radical.

    The stupid thing is they are right! The dumb thing is the media not calling them out.

    Unemployment benefits will help to stimulate a faltering economy.

    Full employment however does a much better job of helping the economy.

    All it does is keep the engine running at low idle. The economy needs some gas to get it going up to speed. Unemployment helps those unemployed to get the bare necessities not all the extras that we all like. Mike.
