Fox displays a photo of Jackson along with Steny Hoyer and Mike Pence from April giving the impression that they are part of this outrageous scheme.

Me and Mrs. Alaska are unemployed, send me our $ 80,000.

Being a TEA party, racist and bigot, please make sure that none of our $ 80,000 comes from any po', black folk.

“And as more people work, they pay taxes, they pay taxes into the 4th quarter, they buy wares, they buy homes, they meet their obligations and our economy begins to work its way out of this protracted recession,” he continued. “That’s the only way out of this crisis.

And I hope the president begins to continue to exercise extraordinary constitutional means based on the history of Congresses that have been in rebellion in the past.”

What a deal! How about you lend me $100 and I give you back $20. What a boon to you-now you're rich.

And it will really boost the economy if I take the remaining $80 and spend it on stuff. Of course, that means that you don't have the $80 to spend on stuff anymore. Oops.

And how will we pay for it? Oh, we'll just print even more money! And how long will it take before a Happy Meal costs $40,000?

With 15 million new (unionized for sure) employees, now obama, holder, hoffa, and soros could have all of these people occupy every park in the country!

Didn't Jackson Jr. make a comment during the Obama campaign comparing victory over white voters to OJ murdering his white wife?

Clear proof that his father ate too much acid in the 60’s. Messes with your DNA.

Add up food stamps, welfare, and public housing....and you’re about there. But, when Bush suggested people work for welfare, the SHTF.

He is not a moron. This is how things work in his world. Jesse Jr's cousin works in the IRS office in Greenville SC (Jesse Sr’s hometown). She comes in everyday and sits in her office and shops on the internet for 8 hrs and leaves. Not one day has she ever done any work of any kind. This information came to me from another IRS employee in that office. This is how these people think things are supposed to be.

I actually LOVE the fact that he has helped demonstrate a few things... aside from his own incompetence at basic economics.

Most people can never wrap their heads around the "hundreds of billions" and "trillions" that the government tosses around... Now they can see that the last Obama stimulus, at $800 billion, did almost nothing. It COULD HAVE handed $40k to 15 million individuals directly. Instead it went to... mostly nothing that affected their lives in any positive way. (It sure helped out plenty of Obama buddies, though... just not 15 million of 'em.)
