Surprise surprise Pelosi grows a set
The senate passed the financial aid package to get aid to the states for FMAP along with funding for a whole bunch of teachers who were scheduled to be laid off just before the school year started. If I didn't know better I'd have thought hell just froze over.
Pelosi is calling the house back in session after they had just gone on summer break an unprecedented move. About time you grew a set Nancy!
In addition I hear senator Stabenow is putting together a jobs bill to help the 99ers.
All I can say is why oh why have they waited so long? People don't want handouts they want jobs. What republicans fail to realize is that we could pay off the national debt and there'd still be massive unemployment because there would be no demand. You can't have demand without money to spend and you can't have money to spend without a job. In recessions past things turned around when the corporate coffers were stuffed. They had no choice but to spend to expand. Not so this time around. They're satisfied with sitting on the cash and making workers they didn't lay off do the work of three people.
