Talking about the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, whom yesterday dropped another shit bomb. Lets remember that our nation is faced with an unprecedented crisis and economic downturn that has left us with a historically high and long lasting unemployment rate of 9.1%, with the LSM for months now telling us things are going to get better followed by “unexpected” job loss numbers of 400K+ every month. Lets not forget that Reid & company fooled Americans into letting them flush what will cost us far more than a trillion dollars on
stimuluspatronage bill that did nothing but lard the pockets of democrat, friends, lobbyists, donors, campaign coffers, special interests, corporate entities like Solyndra, and primarily spent funds to protect federal & state public jobs & interests – that means it grew the public sector at both the state and he federal level for those that are big government supporters – at tax payer expense. And those jobs they claim to have saved or created came at a steep price per job, with an even steeper cost borne by the private sector. Hence the stunner when
Reid made the incredulous statement that the private sector was doing fine and that government had to do stimulus part deux to save the hurting public sector.
If us rubes needed any more proof that these retards do not have a clue about what the economic engine in this country is, or worse, do have a clue, but actually believe it is their function to change that, so that public sector jobs somehow, not just magically replace the private sector jobs, but also start generating wealth instead of just destroying it as they spread the wealth around, this is it. From The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday indicated Congress needs to worry about government jobs more than private-sector jobs, and that this is why Senate Democrats are pushing a bill aimed at shoring up teachers and first-responders. “It’s very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it’s the public-sector jobs where we’ve lost huge numbers, and that’s what this legislation is all about,” Reid said on the Senate floor.
Reid was responding to recent comments from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who accused Democrats of purposefully pursuing higher taxes as part of the teacher/first-responder bill, S. 1723, so that Republicans would oppose it.
McConnell said the bill was meant to fail in order to give Democrats an issue to run on in the 2012 election, but Reid said the Republicans are simply trying to defeat President Obama any way they can. The legislation Reid is defending is part of Obama’s jobs package. Vice President Biden was in Pennsylvania, an important election state, on Tuesday to push for the administration’s plan on increasing the number of teachers.
If this is not an illustration Reid and others on Team Obama are basically using the private sector – that’s us wealth producers and tax cattle – to expand and reward their voter base, and I do not believe I need to provide proof that the public sector is beholden to the left, since only a hack would question or even try to negate that obvious fact, while pretending they care about the little guy, then I think nothing ever will suffice to convince you that it is not coincidental that the democrats talk about the need for government to spend lots of money to address [fill in the blank] right before election time.
Obama’s new job plan is more of the same: lard for the base. It will have the exact same result as the previous one, no matter how much money it indebts the country by: it will serve to help steer huge sums of money to special interest and democrats, grow the private sector, do nothing of significance to address the job market or steer thee economy in a direction that would jump start growth in the private sector – more likely it will cost the private sector lots of jobs – all at the expense of American tax payers.
At least the left is candid about what their priorities are when we listen, but don’t expect the LSM to do anything but ignore this horrendous revelation. If you care about jobs, Reid and his gang certainly are not your horse unless you are a public sector empoloyee. If you are not, then as Reid said: you are already doing just fine by him.
