Huh? Scratching my head over this one.
Unemployment benefits, Speaker Pelosi said, "It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name."
I’m not going to pretend that what Speaker Pelosi says typically makes sense. This, however, has to be one of the more asinine statements I’ve heard her say.
Madame Speaker, how exactly can an unemployment check create even one job, let alone be the fastest way to create jobs? I understand it being a safety net, but can’t it also be an impediment for entrepreneurship?
I would think that lowering corporate taxes would create more jobs than any form of welfare, don’t you?
