We Have to Go Spend Money to Keep From Going Bankruptí (Biden)
cnsnews ^ | 7/16/09 | Penny Starr

Posted on 07/16/2009 2:50:59 PM PDT by Typical_Whitey

Vice President Joe Biden told people attending an AARP town hall meeting that unless the Democrat-supported health care plan becomes law the nation will go bankrupt and that the only way to avoid that fate is for the government to spend more money.

“And folks look, AARP knows and the people working here today know, the president knows, and I know, that the status quo is simply not acceptable,” Biden said at the event on Thursday in Alexandria, Va. “It’s totally unacceptable. And it’s completely unsustainable. Even if we wanted to keep it the way we have it. It can’t do it financially

This has got to the dumbest thing that a politician has ever said. Notice very little play in the MSM because it is egregiously idiotic.

The Obama admin has ZERO credibility on healthcare and the economy.

I’m surprised he didn’t use the liberal’s favorite substitute for ‘spend’ — which is ‘invest’.

Drudge swamped the CNSNews server. This might be so stupid they are forced to cover it with a cute “There goes Joe” quip on the morning shows.

Biden is a true reflection of the American public, clueless. He is everyman making excuses for policies that make him feel good. The coming train wreck is neither his concern nor his responsibility and he is shielded from the effects by private medical insurance and a guaranteed income.

“”....the status quo is simply not acceptable,” Biden said...””

This line of thought is about the only thing I agree with obama on. Ten or twenty years from now, we will wish we would have done something, I am just not sure what they want to do now is the right way to go.

Okay, I can understand investing money wisely to generate future revenues in order avoid bankruptcy, but to spend money on programs that generate no productivity or revenues and say that this will stop us from going bankrupt, well that’s like a company increasing spending on benefits like medical insurance and expecting that somehow this will increase employee productivity.

The money is gone, employees see no difference in their work environment except in the off chance they get now opt for acupuncture instead of hospital treatment, and most employees rarely take advantage of their health insurance. I wish Bush had succeeded with the health savings plan. Darnit.

Had Bush ever said anything even remotely as demonstrably imbecilic as this, it would have received media mega-saturation for the next three weeks straight, non-stop.

Had Sarah Palin said it, "Granny Botox" Pelosi and her willing MSM handmaidens would have rammed an emergency bill through the House, mandating that the former governor immediately be shot through the head, point blank.

As it was "Plugs" who gibbered the nonsense in question, however: it will be lauded and hailed as a verbal gemstone of incomparable beauty and magnificence.

God help us all.

Remember what Joe Biden said back on October 19, 2008??

Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., ... guaranteed that if elected, Sen. Barack Obama., D-Ill., will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.

Little did we know that "the crisis" would be created by Joe Biden!!

Obama appoints Biden to handle stimulus trillions
American Spectator | 6.8.09 | By Philip Klein
FR Posted by Behind Liberal Lines

Vice President Joe Biden said it was “above [his] pay grade” to explain in detail the methodology the White House uses to estimate the number of jobs created or saved by the economic stimulus legislation, but stressed that there had been no “reasonable” challenges to the estimates. **** “I’m sorry I’m not an economist,” Biden said as he was describing the methodology. “My background is foreign policy and the constitution. “ (Excerpt) Read more at spectator.org ...

REFERENCE Fraudster had links to fund run by Bidens
Reuters on Yahoo | 2/23/09 | BY Ajay Kamalakaran
(Excerpt) Read more at news.yahoo.com ...

(Reuters) – A fund of hedge funds run by two members of VP Joe Biden's family was marketed exclusively by firms controlled by Texas financier Allen Stanford, charged by regulators with an $8 billion fraud, the Wall Street Journal said. The Bidens $50 million fund was jointly branded between the Bidens' Paradigm Global Advisors LLC and a Stanford Financial Group entity, and was known as the Paradigm Stanford Capital Management Core Alternative Fund, the paper said. Stanford-related companies marketed the fund to investors and also invested about $2.7 million of their own money in the fund, the paper said, citing a lawyer for Paradigm.

Paradigm Global Advisors is owned through a holding company by the vice president's son, Hunter, and Joe Biden's brother, James, according to the paper. Paradigm's attorney, Marc LoPresti, who represents Hunter Biden and James Biden, as well as Paradigm, told the paper he did not know which Stanford entity invested the roughly $2.7 million. He told the paper the Bidens NEVER met or communicated with Stanford.

===================================

And then he said........."duh."

There don’t you feel better now?

The only way a reasonable person can interpret that is to think that they need the money from the HUGE TAXES they will charge us in the name of Nationalized Health Care, to pay for all of the other Socialist programs they passing.
