The Wicked Witch of the Far Left Claims Unemployment Checks are the Best Way to Create Jobs

The nerve of some people to say these things out loud and expect us to take them seriously.


Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

Talking to reporters, the House speaker was defending a jobless benefits extension against those who say it gives recipients little incentive to work. By her reasoning, those checks are helping give somebody a job.

"It injects demand into the economy," Pelosi said, arguing that when families have money to spend it keeps the economy churning. "It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name."

And Pelosi's plan is working out well from a statistical standpoint since she can now claim unemployment is dropping, even though it's dropping because Americans have simply given up on looking for work that they just can't find.

Way to go, you harpy.

I read somewhere that the idea of offering census workers permanent government jobs was shot down.

We could easily print more fiat, and employ an infinity of people.

But isn't this straight Keynesian economics, or what passes for them these days?
