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.





“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,” Jarrett argued during a speaking engagement at North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina.

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

    This is also the argument that democrats use to defend not reforming welfare and food stamps. I've got some stimulation for her that might bring her back into the real world.

    She is talking about benefits. benefits stimulate an economy in the sense that it recoups some of the original loss from unemployment but it's strictly less. There is zero controversy in this statement unless one pulls it out of context and tries to make a big deal out of nothing.

    A rehash of an old narrative. Nancy Pelosi said the same thing. She is just trying to paint a rosy picture of the economy so people will reelect Obama.

    It is pitiful how few people realize how dangerously evil and corrupt this Chicago skank is. And she has a ring through Obama's nose.

    I was surprised! WHY? Who knows...anything this adminstration does should not surprise anyone! I wonder how many others have ties to and/or are supportive of the muzzies?
