Big Gov't Pelosi: 'Economy is Strengthened by...State and Local Government'

Politicians are just the worst, aren’t they? Leftist, in general, are in the same boat. So when you get to hear a leftist politician speak, all you can do is stand back in awe from the glow of the halo they think shines above their heads while they talk about taking away more and more of your liberties in favor of more government and government-provided debt.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) went on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to answer questions on “the status of virus aid deal negotiations” and she was apparently wearing her big government pantsuit, because Pelosi had no problem calling for “trillions” more in spending while saying that “the economy is strengthened by the physical soundness of state and local government.”

“Forgetting compassion, because frankly we don’t have any shared values when it comes to compassion and caring about people,” Pelosi said about her counterparts across the aisle. “They’re in the trickle down mode, and we’re in the bubble up mode.”

Pelosi seems to have freely admitted that the left has no interest in the practice of capitalism in favor of American citizens being forced to hope that government comes to save them during this time of crisis.

“The economy is strengthened by a bigger infusion of federal dollars into putting money in the pockets of people, so they spend it, they inject demand into the economy, it creates jobs, it strengthens the economy,” Pelosi continued.

The Speaker doesn’t seem to understand that if you just give people money there’s less incentive for them to get back to work. The unemployed might spend the money the government gives them. But what happens when that money runs out and the person in question is still unemployed? What jobs did that money create? Or did it create a bigger dependency of some people on the government? Pelosi’s argument seems flawed, at best.
