Great news from the unhinged Sheila Jackson Lee. The same congresscritter (D-TX) who revealed that the USA had planted its flag on Mars now informs us that far from staggering on its last legs under the Obama Regime’s wildly excessive public spending and endless barrage of malicious regulation, the economy is doing fine. She also tells us that entitlements are not handouts; “they are earned!”
Libs will screech that in a sense Social Security and Medicare really are earned, in that we are forced to pay into them. However, we are at the point in these collapsing Ponzi schemes where more money is coming out than is going in. Eventually means testing will reduce them to straightforward welfare programs, so that as with other wealth-redistributing entitlements, payments will be “earned” only by voting for socialist looters like Sheila Jackson Lee.
On a tip from Byron.
