Deranged Pelosi: Extended Unemployment Benefits Will Add 600,000 Jobs or Something

Posted by on Dec 16, 2011 at 11:16 am

Just like her promise that ObamaCare would immediately add 400,000 jobs, we can probably chalk this lunacy up to Botox seepage into the brain.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that extending unemployment benefits would add “600,000 jobs to our economy.”

She also said that the money from unemployment benefits creates a “safety net” for the U.S. economy because it “injects demand into the economy — creating jobs.”

“Christmas is 10 days away,” said Pelosi at a press briefing on Capitol Hill today. “The president and Democrats in Congress have been very clear. We’re not going home without enacting a payroll tax cut for America’s working families and extending unemployment insurance for millions of Americans.”

“The payroll tax cut that the president proposed would put $1,500 in the pockets of 160 million Americans,” she said. “The unemployment insurance extension is not only good for individuals. It has a macroeconomic impact. As macroeconomic advisers have stated, it would make a difference of 600,000 jobs to our economy.”

Naturally, she didn’t name these alleged macroeconomic advisers.
