Democrat senator Sherrod Brown says that unemployment benefits, not tax cuts, create jobs. Appearing on the lowly rated and hardly watched "Hardball" program on MSNBC on Tuesday, Brown took a page out of his Minority Leaders playbook by ineptly declaring that unemployment benefits are the way to economic prosperity in the US. In the same breath, Brown also decried tax cuts as not doing anything for the US economy in terms of growing jobs for people who want them. Sane people would think that Brown was doing unfunny stand-up comedy, but Brown was being 100% serious. He is the second prominent Democrat after Nancy Pelosi in the last couple of months to declare this ignorant and deranged lie that forms the core of the Democrats economic message.

He is one DUMB HILLBILLY!
I heard the clip of this guy talking. He is an idiot.
I hope Ohio corrects this mistake in 2012.
“I hope Ohio corrects this mistake in 2012.”
They will he is targeted for termination like Strickland was.
Well now I’m confused. After I got laid off last summer and spent six months retraining to do something else and reducing my standard of living to survive, I found a job and got hired by a rich guy who owns the business I now work for. I guess I should have been sending my resume to other unemployed people instead, huh?
Just who keeps electing these anti-American fools? What an ignorant putz. Using this assclown’s logic, we should all go on unemployment so as to make the economy better! Someone...anyone...pull this vacuous klutz aside to check if aliens have removed his cerebral cortex. I bet even his family finds him odd and nonsensical.
Brown, just another ass who proposes sending happy dollars to those who are hopefully on the dole for a short time. I guess if everyone were on unemployment, we would have a very large and growing economy, by his reasoning.
Brown, another terminally stupid individual.
The government gives people money so that they will buy goods so that jobs will arise to make those goods. Those new jobs and goods will pay the taxes to the government that will then be sent to people to buy goods. It is so obvious! The government can build instant and lush prosperity by giving vast amounts of money to unemployed people!
It’s the magic of the Multiplier Effect.
LOL so true.
Following his logic, we should un-employ everyone, pay them benefits and watch the economy just skyrocket!
Prior to serving in the United States Senate, Brown served seven terms as a United States Congressman for the 13th District, two terms as Ohios Secretary of State, and has taught in Ohios public schools and at Ohio State University. He is married to Pulitzer Prize-winning Columnist Connie Schultz.........
How many jobs have the unemployed created, hell they can’t even get a job.
*rolls eyes* Are these people really this dumb?
“Just who keeps electing these anti-American fools?”
The people who want something for nothing!
So, if all the folks on unemployment got a job, it would ruin the economy?
