DC Comes Up With Plan to Save U.S. Economy: More Unemployment and Food Stamp Checks

Nancy Pelosi says food stamps and unemployment insurance will grow US economy

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, announced Wednesday that food stamps and unemployment benefits are one of the best ways to help grow the economy. Her comments in San Francisco were a retort to Newt Gingrich‘s suggestion that Republicans should portray Democrats as the party of food stamps while Republicans were the party of paychecks.

“It is an unassailable fact that in June, more food stamps were distributed by the government than ever before in American history. (It turns out that Barack Obama’s idea of spreading the wealth around was spreading more food stamps around.),” wrote Gingrich.

Recent announcements that more than 41 million American citizens are now receiving food stamps reveals that a very substantial number of people are struggling in economic terms. Most of those who are struggling need jobs, or better jobs than they now have. The thought that food stamps help grow the economy does not give comfort to those who are receiving them.

Unemployment and food stamps may keep people under a roof and fed, but it’s not going to grow an economy.  Pelosi really needs a “checkup from the neck-up” — obviously she’s delusional.
