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.
Its called, “back-door-reperations” creating gov jobs for the “minority population”...
Taxpayers to Aunt Esther: “Nuts!”
As long as lawmakers exhibit this kind of profound greed with no reguard to the cost to fellow Americans we are in deep pudding. Porkulus II, would only benefit Ms. Maxie.
Here's a doozy:
>>>>You've obviously never studied economics. Govt spending does not take money out of the private economy. The govt borrows money that people do not want to invest in the private sector and puts the money into the private sector via govt spending.
The concept you are struggling to comprehend is called crowding out.<<<<
So, I guess the Left thinks that there would be nothing detriMENTAL about this...big emphasis on MENTAL.
Dear Rep. Waters,
Hey moron, what was black unemployment at after we did the last $1 trillon stimulus?
I would ask you to resign so someone with a lick of sense could take your place, but there is no chance that a district that would elect you year after year would elect anyone with a lick of sense, so please just try to stop spewing violence, hatred and stupidity out of your mouth for a day or two, OK?
apparently no one sent her the memo that we are up to our neck in debt, and there is no more free money her hero barak hussein obama spent it all!
Just in time for LABOR DAY!!
And YES the RATs are THAT Stupid.
Maxatrillion Waters, economist extraordinaire.
I say make it an even quadillion...quintillion...moonwillion...bozillion...
Hey, it’s only money...
It’s a good thing that this nitwit keeps talking like this. It’s this kind of reckless insanity that made winning in 2010 easier than it would have been. Kerosene Maxine! You go girl!
“”Im talking about a jobs program of a trillion dollars or more.””
Hey Maxine, we already gave you a trillion dollars in 2009 and you squandered it on worthless projects and payoffs to your voter base.
Hey Maxine, because you squandered the trillion dollars in 2009 we defeated you Democrats in 2010 and now you no longer control the money.
Suck it up Maxine. There are consequences to acting stupid.
Hey complex issues like Economics are EASY...when your Stupid.
Then again maybe she did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night and just finished up from performing Brain Surgery on someone this morning before the interview?
How about confiscating it from your yet to be born great grand children!
When is this woman's ethics trial going to happen?
The best fed jobs program would be “BUILD MORE PRISONS”.
It would be far better to burn that money than to let her get her grubby hands on it.
Yeah, I don’t understand why she just wants 1 trillion, why not go for 5 trillion and really get our economy humming?
They have already aborted 50 million of my generation so even that route isn’t as rosy a proposition as it appears.
Yup a trillion bucks is just about right. Introduce a bill to cut taxes by said amount and voila. Jobs for everyone! Maxine Waters is a TEA party supporter without realizing it!!
