The last time unemployment benefits were extended, Pelosi said they would create a million jobs. Where are they, Nancy, you fool?

Her idea of jobs is anything that will keep people on the plantation.

This would be funny, except that about half of the voters in the US believe her just because she has the D after her name.

Funny.

Years ago, a "wellness" consultant pitched a plan. He said spending $100,000 on their wellness plan would reduce my benefits spend by a $million.

I looked at him and said, "I'll take 10."

He didn't get it, and neither does Pelosi.

If Unemployment Benefits are so good for the economy, why limit them just to the unemployed?

Being patriotic I want to help my country, with that in mind and being retired I should be given unemployment pay as I’m not employed and would like to create jobs. When can I expect my check?

I think she's considering the hire of 600,000 new government employees whose job it will be to seek out new ways to take money from gainfully employed citizens and give it to those who feel America owes it to them.

If we fire her and put her on unemployment, I wonder how many millions of jobs that would create.

I’m sure she can find a bunch of economists to back her up. Some BS about the jobs created or saved by folks continuing to spend their unemployment and a “multiplier effect.”

Some economists live so far out in lala land it is truly hard to imagine.

Of course she knows what it means she's from San Francisco.
It has to do with the market price of brown rice and tofu.

Hey, San Fran Nan Pelosi is just testing the boundary limits for Obama so the President does not become the first Democrat politician in history to overestimate the stupidity of the majority of the American people.

This is a very important job Pelosi is doing because even the most stupid, corrupt Democrats have figured out that they are pushing the limits of the BS they can push off on the American people and finding a new job in 2013 may be a bitch

Pelosi is right. All those parasitic folks are going to need a bunch of people working to check them out at grocery stores, greet them at Walmart, etc.
