Another Clown Under the Obama Administration Big Top Hails Unemployment Checks as ‘Economic Stimulus’

Our economy is in the most capable of hands. So far various Keynesian snake oil vendors at the Hope & Change Circus have said that food stamps are stimulus, that government regulations are great job creators and that unemployment checks help stimulate the economy.

Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett doubled-down on the latter recently:

If it’s such great stimulus then why not just have everybody lose their jobs and go on unemployment in order to jump-start the economy? (re-elect Obama to see that played out in full)

People who consider unemployment checks as “stimulus” probably shouldn’t be trusted anywhere near America’s economy. The only way unemployment will be stimulus for America is when Team Obama are the ones who are unemployed.
