She said that unemployment checks are the fastest way to create jobs because they give money for people to spend.

What she doesn't understand, as Milton Friedman said once, "it's not about the money received, but about the goods and services produced".

The problem is that people are receiving money for not producing anything.

There are many people who would rather live on unemployment than make less money by working, and by giving unemployment indiscriminately for long periods of time, that's the slowest way to create jobs.

Pelosi has said a lot of stupid things, but this may very well be stupidest thing she had ever said.

She is crazy but one can see the philosophy behind what she is saying.

I am sure it is not.
