The beauty, or should I say lie, of a Democrat plan. Or is it really a socialist plan? In any case it is.
Bernie Sanders is again touting his jobs plan as the cure for unemployment problems, particularly younger people. But it is not a jobs plan at all, its a big-spending plan, by big government of course. Bloomberg news: 5.5 billion to employ 1 million young people.
[June]The legislation, introduced by Michigan Representative John Conyers, would create a $5.5 billion fund, $4 billion earmarked for the employment of people between 16 and 24, $1.5 billion for job training grants. There are no pay-fors. It would ask a Congress that is dead-set against “big government” to employ people, with the help of big government.
Bernster already received ringing praise and an endorsement on it from Robert Reich. Birds of the feather. Reich said it is a perfect time for this spending plan to take advantage of low borrowing rates. Yea, that’s the ticket.
Chris Hayes(MSNBC) called this one of the longest post-war economic expansions ever recorded. (stop laughing people) Sander’ plan, “direct 200 bln dollars a year for 5 years” on infrastructure spending, “we got a multiplier effect.”(remember Obama’s spending on those “shovel-ready” jobs — shoveling money. What multiplied was our debt)
The economy: “It’s growing…at this point one of the most enduring post-war expansions we have ever seen,” said Hayes.
Reich: “I tell you why I think its a very good idea and a very important idea: number one, because we can borrow at very,very low interest rates right now. Number two, you still have a lot of people who are not only out of work,…. Number three, you have a crumbling infrastructure. You have roads and bridges, and pipes, and rapid transit systems that are all falling apart [sort of like Hillary Clinton’s campaign.] all over America. Put those three together and it’s logical this kind of plan is necessary.
“I think she’d make an excellent president. … and in terms of policies, he [Bernie] is very much articulating the kind of things that are needed in this country. I mean I think he is allowing, because he is, ah, kind of creating territory for Hillary to move into. He is allowing Hillary, the Democratic candidate, I think, whoever that is, to be a little bit more bolder than otherwise. But this country, right now, really needs boldness.”
So just to be clear, we aren’t talking about jobs really at all but spending — big-government spending. It’s the answer to everything. “Spending, got some?”
No surprise at what Bernie Sanders is actually doing. He’s just laying out the socialist Left flank for Hillary, er so she doesn’t have to.(all those people at rallies, haha) When the time comes, it all merges to Hillary Clinton. Sanders is only a bold, big-spending placeholder.
