The dingbat of the airwaves is back with her latest political blathering over the proposed Obama job plan, and her perception that the last stimulus created millions of jobs. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) also went on and touted her support for raising taxes and how that would benefit the economy.
According to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz…“At the end of the day, we have to make sure that we don’t continue to deepen our problems by laying off more union teachers, union firefighters and union police officers. We have to make sure we put union construction workers back to work like the American Jobs Plan would do by investing in the infrastructure we need, and we have to make sure that this is paid for by folks who are not paying their fair share now, making sure that the wealthy and more fortunate step up to the plate, and that’s how we’re going to get this done. Except those that have already gotten a Obamacare Waiver and will have an advantage.”
To DWS and others like her, taxation is good, and an easy way to promote more wasteful spending. When it’s all said and done it truly is other people’s money anyway and they get to tell YOU how and where it goes.
Supporters of increased taxation fail to recognize that the wealthy are more than just lucky individuals, they amassed their wealth smartly and with great insight as to how the economic system works. Mostly, they are small business people who when faced with less personal fortune after increased taxes are going to raise prices on their products or services to offset the increased taxes. They do pay more taxes, but you, the consumer, pay the tax increase for them. If price raising is competitively unwise, and would results in less profit, the wealthy will simply lay off workers to cut costs and boost profits. The government raise taxes on the rich and the middle class pays them anyway!
Re-building infrastructure? Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, like most truly brainless Democrats, only sees the front of the line and calls the wait time ‘nominal.’ But in reality, re-building infrastructure and any jobs that spin off from it is NOT a short term solution.
Bridges, sewer and water systems, power grids, and road building all require building and impact permits. Usually, a year from plan submission would be a short time for any company to obtain one. These are local and state permits and the Federal government has little sway or influence. So, throw tons of money at a project and maybe with-in two years it will be shovel ready and certainly not an instant job creator…But the front of the line still looks small to people like DWS!
Perhaps the Crowning acheivement of DWS comments are the foolhardy revisionist policy of defending an Obama program that leaders on both sides acknowledge as a failed stimulus package costing the taxpayers over $700 Billion dollars and actually caused unemployment to rise 2.1%! Most people, no, make that most reasonable people, would say that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is completely out of her element and out of touch with reality.
Being a Obama Democrat reminds me of an old movie skit simply called Emptying The Pool…A man stands at a pool and reaches for a bucket, dips it, fills it and hands to another who in turn passes it hand-to-hand down the line. The line goes all around the block and ends up at the far end of the same pool where another man dumps the bucket back into the pool.
Yes, alot of people are busy,nothing gets done, and they tell their supporters how hard they work for their interests.
