“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Nancy Pelosi has completely lost it

Remember how Nancy Pelosi promised that Obamacare would create 4million jobs over its life and 400,000 almost immediately? Here she is absurdly promising the same thing about unemployment benefits extensions.....

If somebody can explain how unemployment money translates into private-sector jobs, please do it now. And don't give me the even-unemployment-money-stimulates-the-economy-to-create-jobs argument. You can't take money out of the economy to pay for benefits and then put it back in and have it create employment.....it's a zero-sum game.

According to NP's math, it apparently does.
