Let's Help the Politicians Create Jobs

I work very hard on this blog to keep my own political perspective or specific views on my faith out of the mix, however, I could not resist to comment on the person who is just two heartbeats away from the presidency.  It should be good for at least one laugh...

Pelosi:  Unemployment Checks Fastest Way to Create Jobs

 Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

Talking to reporters, the House speaker was defending a jobless benefits extension against those who say it gives recipients little incentive to work. By her reasoning, those checks are helping give somebody a job.

"It injects demand into the economy," Pelosi said, arguing that when families have money to spend it keeps the economy churning. "It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name."

Pelosi said the aid has the "double benefit" of helping those who lost their jobs and acting as a "job creator" on the side.

"It's impossible to think of a situation where we would have a country that would say we're not going to have unemployment benefits," Pelosi said. 

After reading this article, I thought maybe we should assist our politicians with creating jobs.  Let's follow Nancy's suggestion and fire all the politicians.  I am not sure if they will qualify for unemployment checks since they set up their own retirement programs, but I am willing to test out Pelosi's idea for the good of our country.  We could celebrate with an old-fashioned tea party.   More jobs could be planners, sign makers, bakers, confetti makers... small businesses everywhere could jump in and help with our government's job creation efforts.  We wouldn't want it to overshadow all the jobs being created by our lawmakers, but I think small businesses all across our country may be able to do something to help our politicians create jobs.  I know this may be a radical idea for those living in Washington, D.C.

It will be hard to say goodbye to Pelosi and all the career politicians, but we must think about the needs of the country, unemployed politicians are vital to job creation.  Are you willing to help the politicians create jobs?  Don't forget to vote, the country's future is at stake.
