"Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family."

Huh?
I like her. I hope she wins in November. I look forward to seeing her speak in Congress.
You're kidding, right?
No I am dead serious .
So medicare for all, and the gov't guarantees a job?
She would represent the people of her district . She is upfront about her positions. If the voters elect her then that is what they want. It isn’t what I want . I don’t live in her district.

Maybe Drump can give her a lesson? :lo2l:

“The number is not reflective. I have seen numbers of 24 percent. I saw a number of 42 percent unemployment. … That number is so false.”

“They say 5.3 percent employment. The number is probably 32 percent.”

“Nobody has jobs. … It is not a real economy. It is a phony set of numbers. They cooked the books.”

“Don't believe those phony numbers when you hear 4.9 and 5 percent unemployment. As high as 35 — as in fact, I heard recently, 42 percent.”

“They show those phony statistics where we are 5.4 percent unemployment. The real number, I saw a number that could be 42 percent, believe it or not.”

“Then you hear there's a 5.4 percent unemployment. It's really — if you add it up, it's probably 40 percent if you think about it.”
Yep.

Do you have a point??? :nesaitpas:

chucky, so medicare for all, and the gov't guarantees a job is what your support?

Either way, she's a young clueless loser, just a millenial Pelosi or Warren.

I find no excuse for having such a filthy mouth unless you just don't have an adequate vocabulary to express yourself otherwise and even that is no excuse when we have very good dictionary reference books available very inexpensively. He likely had very poor school teachers who didn't push vocabulary building.
