WH Senior Advisor: Unemployment Stimulates the Economy

Valerie Jarrett "Even though we had a terrible economic crisis three years ago, throughout our country many people were suffering before the last three years, particularly in the black community,
And so we need to make sure that we continue to support that important safety net. It not only is good for the family, but it's good for the economy. People who receive that unemployment check go out and spend it and help stimulate the economy, so that's healthy as well."

I was hoping to see Freepers take on the Keynsianism conservatives say is dead.

Alas, Freepers are easily distracted, and confuse unemployment with unemployment insurance, and of course the black thing, and the hated Valerie Jarrett, mastermind of Obama....

Freepers - never crazy about what you want them to be crazy about:

laweeks thinks she's comparing unemployment insurance with having a job:
So, using this idiot's logic, if we were ALL out of work and on welfare, the economy would be BOOMING!
No no no, she's comparing having unemployment insurance to being unemployed with no income at all!

Da Coyote decides not to engage:
These people are competely bat-shit crazy.

Succinct and true.

No more needs to be said.
BigDaddyTX knows she was only talking about black people:
So Val says that having black people on unemployment is good for the economy. Blind followers! Every frickin’ Obama 12 sticker I see just amazes me.
RightOnline knows if you like unemployment insurance, you must be a full-on communist:
Well just s**t fire and save matches......ol’ Val has hit upon the cure for all of our country’s economic woes.

Why, all we need to do is send every dime we earn to the Feds and let them redistribute the money as they see fit...of course, heavily favoring blacks. See, then the economy will get a HUGE stimulus!

{slapping forehead] why didn’t I think of that?????
MadMax, the Grinning Reaper thinks Communism is hereditary, or something:
Jarrett has at least one red in her family-tree, Vernon Jarrett. She is crazy but like a fox, a red fox. Never underestimate this Chicago pinko.
She is dangerous.
chooseascreennamepat likes to use crazy analogies:
Contracting cancer makes you healthier, too.

Jarrett is a total, complete, screaming IDIOT COMMIE!
denydenydeny thinks that if you agree with Keynes you're a Communist:
People on that side seem to be saying this more and more, as it’s a foundation for a permanent redistributive society; Soviet Communism in all but name.
Babba Gi has an illustrative story that proves how completely he misses the point:
My wife just got laid off. Now instead of making $1,500 a week she’s getting $525 a week. I’m still employed and I make a decent salary so we will be fine. However, her lay off will cause us to cancel some trips, postpone some home improvements, eat out less etc. How can this help stimulate the economy? Besides the point, she isn’t happy doing nothing. We are part of the one percent who like to work.
Lazamataz thinks his crazy interpretation is so crazy, it must be a tactic!
I seriously believe this crew is now engaged in the Big Lie technique.
Richard Belzer defines The Big Lie, in his book UFOs, JFK, and Elvis: Conspiracies You Don't Have To Be Crazy To Believe, this way: "If you tell a lie that's big enough, and you tell it often enough, people will believe you are telling the truth, even when what you are saying is total crap."
Lazamataz follows up:
I will not live in a communist tyranny.

This'll be fun.

  1. I wonder where Laz thinks he's going to go? Just about every other first world country is much farther to the left than the U.S.
