    She is is flat out nuts. Someone needs to explain to her the concept of wealth creation, as opposed to wealth redistribution.The fact that she occupy the position she does just makes this statement all the more egregious, what a boob.

    Not only does Pelosi get uglier ever day, she gets more ignorant.

    When you consider that republicans in the house and senate do absolutely nothing is their pay and great benefits welfare? I think it is as I cannot think of a single thing they have accomplished in fifty years or more. Actually when you go back and consider the failures of Coolidge/Hoover and Reagan/Bush, it could be morally and legally claimed that when they do anything it is actually bad for the nation. That being the factual case, a pragmatist would argue that welfare for the needy contributes to society, while welfare for the republicans and the rich has a negative impact. So it turns out those who worship and defend the rich are the idiots today. But the rich like them that way.

    The Conservative Nanny State


    "Conservatives want to use the government to distribute income upward to higher paid workers, business owners, and investors. They support the establishment of rules and structures that have this effect. First and foremost, conservatives support nanny state policies that have the effect of increasing the supply of less-skilled workers (thereby lowering their wages), while at the same time restricting the supply of more highly educated professional employees (thereby raising their wages)."

    Newt Gingrich has a point. What Pelosi is saying telegraphs their true intent for the people of this Republic.

    I like what he had to say here...

    Of course she reads them. They are called preliminary reports. Then she tells them what to change so they look like this. Can you post a food stamp and unemployment application here. I'll get right on fixing the economic owes of America. The cat can have hers filled out by dinner. Tuna I believe.

    I'm willing to bet that bringing us into the black and promoting a healthy economy has a much greater multiplier effect in the long run than endless unemployment insurance.

    Seems like the biggest bang for the buck was home purchases for those without means. That sucker blew up HUGE!
