Stuck on stupid.
The cold weather has caused common sense to freeze in Washington D.C. They can’t seem to change their ways. Maybe that’s why more than four-and-a-half years after the economic recovery began, seven out of 10 Americans consider the economy to be in poor shape. The average weekly new jobless claims in 2013 was 350,000, whereas new jobs were only 18,000, and 70 percent of those were part-time.
But they don’t change their ways. If Washington were honest, they would admit the real unemployment rate is more like 11 percent.
Is this an indication of what Democrats are saying? That free market policies are causing income inequality? Not at all!
A recent analysis by the Tax Foundation found that tax rates for the wealthy are higher today than they have been in 35 years, casting doubt on the notion that taxing the rich more can combat inequality. The job statistics are not getting better with the Democrats’ policies, nor with their hot air.
But it gets worse. The White House is now demanding that Congress extend unemployment benefits without offsetting the costs. Here we go again. The Republicans are saying we should see where we can offset the costs. The White House says, oh no, we don’t need to do that. Now I know some people need that money, just as I know there’s a lot of abuse associated with it. But as usual, the White House is demanding its way because of its arrogant and steroids. That’s why they think they can get away with this crapola. They’re convinced the mainstream media will parrot whatever talking points the Democrats supply, so they don’t fear any accountability for what they’re doing.
They could find the money just from cutting out waste and fraud, but they don’t even want to try because they’re confident they can pick your pockets and get away with it.
Also, sorry to say this, but a lot of people are just stupid. That’s the bottom line. That’s why we have the mess we have in Washington D.C.
