Posted on 09/05/2011 7:51:55 AM PDT by R0CK3T
"Im talking about a jobs program of a trillion dollars or more. Weve got to put Americans to work. Thats the only way to revitalize this economy. When people work they earn money, they spend that money, and thats what gets the economy up and going," Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told NBC's "Meet the Press."

This level of stupid thinking by her and other Big Government Liberals is the same sort that forced the sub-prime loan model thru Fanny and Freddie and we all can see how well that all turned out?
I can't help but believe that these people know exactly what they are doing to crater our economic system via Cloward-Piven, because the free money spending can't go on for ever AND there will be an economic Reckoning.
Imagine what Maxine’s supporters are going to do when Premier Hussein is removed from office by the voters...
So where does Maxine expect to get a TRILLION dollars to do this? If she tries PRINTING the money like Argentina and Germany did, she should expect the same results. Maybe get a Color Lazer Jet and let everyone print and make their own money...it would accomplish the same goal.
Have you ever been in her district? If not, it will answer a lot of questions why they want another hand out. That’s all they know.
Dos the MLK Blvd run right down the middle of her district?
Maxine is now interested in jobs for us...she fears without them, that ‘her people’ will have to go to work.
Unemployment can go straight to hell.
“What else can you say? Here she is advocating for 1 Trillion in “free money” with no concern (or even idea) about how it will damage the country if enacted. “
Isn’t her husband the big banker dude who got government money? Perhaps she and he would distribute their wealth to her cause./s
Maxine’s never had a job and most of the people in her district have never had a job. “Money for nothin and chicks for free”.
will these be “shovel ready” jobs?
I thought the stimulus was supposed to do this!
Whatever happened to the stimulus money?
MaRxine is at again.
I thought 0b0z0 was the most ignorant feral animal in the government.
MaRxine beats him, hands down.
How does a lunatic like this get into Congress?? And people wonder why we are in trouble.....
Feral animals should be represented. They are 25% of the "population."
This is how a trillion appears from the magic bucket. You think like a Soviet planner...a six-year plan is likely. So you break this up into a $100-$120 billion a year. Then it actually looks achievable.
The problem here is two-fold. We need this to show strong results within twelve months (if the President wanted to have it help him in the election)....so a small amount of $120 billion on infrastructure won’t really do much over twelve months. Then you kind of mention the comment “shovel-ready”, which we know is non-existent.
I will add one other comment over this...much of this infrastructure thinking....comes to major urban areas (Boston, Philly, New York, Miami, Milwaukee, St Louis, etc). By the time you break up $120 billion a year....you basically end up with a very small amount of money per each region. Then you can ask the question about some rural areas like west Texas or southern Mississippi. You might find a $12 million-dollar road project for some town out in west Texas, but it’s a one-shot deal for that community because they won’t get anything else by the time you spread this out.
The honest truth....to make the trillion help America...it needs to flushed out into the system over eighteen months and pretty spread out to help rural communities just as much.
And then the final question....where the heck does the money come from? In 2008, we could have answered that...but the stimulus has come and gone. So our one shot has been used up already.
Maxine’s money-grabbing can go straight to h#ll!!
This could be her sort of “preemptive” Johnny Cochran / OJ Strategy to her defense. Beside, she would probably love to see LA burn again so she can be the Federal ATM funneling out the $ to “rebuild”.
That's easy.....we just borrow it from her husband's bank.
Translation: well, brocko, we betta get the money and run while the gettin is good.
Corrollary: we don’t really want jobs; just money. Now do it, chump.
....and that’s just for her Congressional district.
