    I have no words except heaven help us.::eusa_pray: What a freaking economic policy!!!

    White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett has adopted a stance on unemployment that is sure to infuriate many, arguing that it stimulates the economy because people who receive unemployment checks are going out and spending them, reports The Weekly Standard.


    Here's another gem

    “People who receive that unemployment check go out and spend it and help stimulate the economy, so that’s healthy as well,”

    It does "stimulate" the economy more than giving more money to already rich people.

    Neither one really stimulates the economy though.

    On a basic level it's true that giving people money will stimulate the economy as people will go out and spend that money. The problem is that by paying people not to work, you're not creating any wealth. You're just redistributing it by taking away from the people who work and giving that money to the people who don't.
