The White House needs a serious reality check last week White House spokesman Jay Carney said the unemployed.
Are actually good for the economy and in the president's secretary of agriculture followed -- this comment take a listen.
I should point out that when you talk about the snap program -- the food stamp program.
You have to recognize it's also an economic stimulus and every dollar of snap benefits generates a dollar 84 in the economy -- economic activity.
If people wherever inviolable more -- the grocery store than someone's got to socket -- -- package it process it.
Ship -- all of those are jobs.
It's the most direct stimulus you can get into the economy during tough time.
Food stamps and unemployment are good for the economy seems to me sounds like a lot like socialism.
Turning -- congressman Stephen king of Iowa.
Harassment Obama's agenda of wealth redistribution has never been hidden did you ever think they try to say try to sell us that unemployment.
And food stamps are actually economic stimulus.
Well it just completely brazen to hear cabinet members say that we need to give away food stamps then this have one point 84.
Dollars one dollar and 84 cents worth of economic activity.
That roles on the tail end of Nancy Pelosi for a couple of years now saying that unemployment checks are about the best stimulating you can get.
If you and now that we don't know yet whether they think food stamps or unemployment checks are the best way to stimulate the economy.
It is hour radius is breathtaking and listening to Maxine Waters in the previous segment as well.
Tells me that that you know they are they are they're socialists to the core.
One day and Judiciary Committee -- pointed to all the Democrats and said you're all a bunch of marxists and they were not even offended.
There are members of the progressive party in the cabinet -- you know they are carried the president's message so this is -- president's message there are more food stamps more unemployment less economic growth.
-- -- the message their 45 million people on foods Americans on food stamps right now that's up 42%.
-- if that's not an indicator of his spread the wealth and and you know socialist tendencies nothing -- Well it went from 31 million just a few years ago now to 42 million or maybe more -- out there recruiting as fast as they can.
They increase food stamps and the last round by 46%.
And the best witness that they could find to say so was Janet -- we have the present level Raza.
That said that one of the reasons we have obesity in America is because of food anxiety.
If we would just give people more food stamps a -- less anxiety that it wouldn't overeat when they did have a meal you know congress I can't argue with that kind of thing I can't connect with that.
But what -- what we really need to Begin a couple of minutes here of your brain -- you're the guy there.
Let let's talk about that that dollar that they're talking about big giveaway of a dollar that creates a dollar 84 and Tom Vilsack -- You don't liberal -- -- world.
But that dollar has to come from somewhere that's a tax dollar that some hardworking Americans had to pay.
-- to the government so it's not just creating a dollar speaking from someone else who earned it.
It takes it right out of the private sector and it takes about a growth for the private sector two and 41 cents out of each one of those dollars and it has borrowed money and -- that's bar from places like Saudi Arabia and China.
And so we're borrowing just to hand people money -- getting them to spend it.
It is it is aid and -- -- economic proposition -- keynesian to its core.
And they believe they can create this giant economic chain letter by borrowing money heading -- people and getting them to spend it.
And it is so He would -- in the idea that if this works if you have to have the process and package it -- that Paula do all those things.
What are we just throw the food away at the other end of that we've created the job or or whatever what somebody's been I don't know whatever -- get jobs and unemployment -- is that if it's good for 10% of the country -- good for.
90% ought to percent of the country.
All of that's that's a question here's -- -- really are.
But Tom Vilsack doesn't understand our economy he's tied into this keynesian economist on steroids who is a man in our White House.
They have played their game out to about the and now the house is not gonna give them any more of this keynesian economic stimulus package.
They're they're trying to -- to their base is about all they can do.
There's no more cards -- president complain there's no more that I don't think can be any more outrageously said and Tom Vilsack and Maxine Waters together.
Here's what we need to do be a we would need to produce goods and services and have a marketable value here and abroad.
This is a production driven economy not a consumer driven economy and we will not get it turned around until we understand that and -- on rite sir before I let you go your running against it believe -- not -- and sorry secretary of agriculture is.
Tom -- -- wife is that right do you think socialism runs in the family there.
Well she is said that she supports her husband's positions and she'll let us know when she does not this is a good question I think -- Christie Vilsack.
Do you agree with your husband that food stamps or economic similar is in.
Is or anybody that shouldn't get them then if we're going to stimulate the economy by -- money from the Chinese.
And I'm not handing out food stamps and unemployment checks because it's the same philosophy -- -- so that's a great question we should ask them are you whether it's Vilsack for Vilsack or Obama.
Whether the Chinese think it's a good idea to stimulate our economy through giving away.
Tax dollars are harder -- working Americans money two to people who work.
On food stamps and -- and unemployment benefits are gonna have to leave their congressman Steve -- thank you very much.
