Dem Congressman Keith Ellison: Regulations Create Jobs (Democrats prove they are dumber than rocks)
real clear politics ^ | 10/10/2011 | staff

Posted on 10/10/2011 5:39:31 PM PDT by tobyhill

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) tells MSNBC regulations create jobs because a business will have to hire people to help them comply with the new requirement.

"I think the answer is no," Ellison said when asked if he believes regulations kill jobs. "And here is why: When we talked about increasing fuel efficiency standards, the industry responded, and they need engineers and designers and manufacturers, and they need actually more people to help respond to the new requirement."

The democrat party is proof positive of God.

Those without talent, morals, or creativity needed a place where they could earn a living without having to do anything useful.

Ergo...the liberal dim-bulb-crat party.

And for those with extra special needs due to complete cretinism...there is always the house and senate, and if you’re realllllllly special, a democrat presidency.

Never mistake motion for action.

The liberal followers believe that all good comes from big government.
That all bad comes from capitalism.

Right up there with Pelosi’s statement that Unemployment checks create lots of jobs.

It’s not about stupidity. It’s about funding and staffing bureaucratic tyranny.

Between Pelosi and this idiot the Republicans may not actually have to use Obama in their campaign commercials at all.

These Democrats are the same people who believe that every $1.00 spent on food stamps puts $1.79 into the economy, and unemployment compensation works the same way. How is it possible to even have a civilized discussion with these animals?

I have always wondered why blacks turn to Islam when it’s the most repressive of all religions, and the only answer I can come up with is to get back at whitey (Christianity being whitey’s religion). Unless there is a better explanation..

...the industry responded, and they need engineers and designers and manufacturers, and they need actually more people to help respond to the new requirement

And bailouts. Don't forget they needed bailouts.

No, he’s right! the more regs, the more people the gov has to hire to enforce them and police the masses. Its been part of their plan all along, to create gov jobs for the unemployable... gees, haven’t you been through airport screening? Toadies looking through your personal belongings with a sense of power they’ve never known before? Telling you where to stand, touching you with an air of invincibility?

I spent a decade in the private sector as one of those compliance people getting government approvals to build retirement housing projects. While Rep. Ellison is correct that my skill in cutting red tape gave me employment, nothing I did directly made money for the company. My job was simply an expense and did not contribute directly to the profit of the company. If as Rep. Ellison alleges that an onerous regulatory climate would necessitate companies hiring dozens of red tape cutters just to shuffle the paper work, little or nothing would get built and few if any goods would be manufactured or sold. The company thus wouldn’t have the money to pay the army of red tape cutters or anyone else.
