Wasserman Schultz: GOP "Rooting For The Economy To Fail"
Real Clear Politics ^ | Novermber 13, 2011 | Staff

Posted on 11/14/2011 2:04:28 PM PST by QT3.14

VIDEO: "President Obama is trying to make sure the middle class gets 17 different tax cuts for small business owners. Ninety-five per cent of Americans got a tax break at the outset of Obama's administration. We are focused on getting things turned around, and while yes, we've increased our debt, we've done so in a way that has made sure the economy can start to turn around, and we would make even more progress if the Republicans would stop rooting for the economy to fail," Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

If we wanted the economy to fail, we’d support Obama’s agenda 100%, lock, stock and barrel.

If that comment were true, the dimocrats and the Republicans would be in lock-step with each other. Because the dimocrats are actually causing the economy to fail. Any recovery that's going on is going on in spite of this stupid dimocratic administrationg; not because of it.

Tax break? Anybody here remember getting a “tax break” from the feds? The only thing that matters is decreases in marginal rates — that’s what people and companies respond to.

“...yes, we’ve increased our debt, we’ve done so in a way that has made sure the economy can start to turn around”

She’s as insane as Pelousi. $5 TRILLION of new debt and NOTHING at all to show for it. NOTHING! Truly insane.

No, Debbie. You and you buddy have already failed, epically.

What the GOP is trying to do is prevent you from taking the economy down with you, until we can get rid of you next year.

I'm getting a break since I stopped working. More time to do tax-free work for myself, less taxes to the Feds.

Tax slavery indeed.

Hey Debbie...it’s already failing and your policies have made it immeasurably worse.

The GOP is trying to limit the damage until something other than progressive marxists are in charge and we can turn it around and actually start helping the economy.

That’s the really laughable thing about Butch Schultz’s comments—it’s not as if Obama hasn’t gotten nearly everything he wanted passed. And still the economy has failed. So what’s their solution? Come back and do more of the same of what’s failed. That’s the definition of insanity. If we wanted the economy to fail, we wouldn’t have sent a dozen bills of what does work, (unlike this Keynesian slob Obama and the Dems propose which has never worked and never will) including tax and regulatory relief to the Senate where Dumbo Harry’s just sat on it.

Nothing says ‘Rooting for the Economy to Fail’ like saying no to a pipeline for oil from Canada to be processed at US refineries that will create 20,000 jobs today.

I’m sorry, but if the R’s don’t use that every single time the issue of jobs comes up, then we have issues.

I don’t want the economy to fail. It’s just that I know it won’t succeed with the current leaders in charge and the longer they are in charge, the more damaged the economy will be.

When it comes to Democrats and their union thugs, this is a party that - - when there is a Republican president - - relentlessly flogs “the economy, stupid”, and cheers wartime US military body counts.

Democrats wring their hands in glee when the economy tanks and people lose their jobs, their homes, their health care, and their savings because they know many of those people will go running to big government for the handouts Democrat politians cheerfully provide in exchange for votes.

The Democrat Party USA is a party that hates traditional America so much that it proudly exclaims that its goal is to “change” America, and whose agenda is to turn America into a Euro-style socialist welfare state - - you know, to make America as great as... Greece.

Democrat voters walk into the polling place on election day and vote for big government to confiscate more - - from their neighbors.

Is it possible to be any more rude and selfish than Democrats?

I just don’t think it is.

Mine wasn't really a choice either, but I haven't looked at all for gainful employment since Zer0's been elected.

I'll tackle most anything and can make "good money" by doing things for myself rather than pay to have it done. (I can drink (some) beer on the job while I also hang out with the dog too. And the commute is sweet.))
