You just gotta love the creative Nobel Economic Prize worthy economic theories of the Democrat feministas. A month and a half after the very first female Speaker of the House, Rep Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) groundbreaking revelation that not only are "unemployment benefits one of the biggest stimulus to our economy" but they also "create jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name," along comes her colleague, Rep Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) with equally creative theories.
Schakowsky, who serves on the House Select Committee on Intelligence and was a colleague of President Barack Obama (D) in the (notoriously corrupt) Illinois state legislature has discovered how to reduce the deficit--the public option for health care which will not so incidentally destroy the insurance companies. Speaking at the nutty Netroots Nation conference,
serious deficit hawks ought to get behind a new "robust" public option bill that she and more than a hundred other members introduced days ago.
In an interview with Raw Story at the Netroots Nation conference, Schakowsky predicted that a new "focus on deficit reduction" and rising public distrust of the insurance industry would generate stronger support for it among members of Congress.
"We've seen the cost [savings], and we've seen the behavior of the insurance companies," she said. "I think that really puts a new atmosphere on the prospects for a new public option."
The public option cost savings are so not there that Britain's National Health Service is cutting back on treatment for the elderly and reducing health options and availability while thinking of changing the system causing rising public distrust of the British government. But Schakowsky can do it differently?
