[Pelosi's] spokesman, Brendan Daly, said more than two hours after Reid's announcement, "We are moving forward with this legislation, which will create or save more than 3 million jobs."
Obama estimated 3.5 million in his own celebration of the agreement. He said it would "get our economy back on track."
And, under the best economic advisement, the bill will include one of the best incentives to get people to work:
"The emerging legislation is at the core of Obama's economic recovery program, and includes help for victims of the recession in the form of expanded unemployment benefits, food stamps, health coverage and more..."
The next Five-Year Plan, which needs to overlap with this Five-Year Plan, needs to put even more people to work. And so, I recommend the following IMMEDIATELY, as we are now locked in a crisis never before seen in the history of the cosmos:
- The return of the seven-day work week.
- Unemployment benefits at union scale, to encourage people to work those seven-day weeks.
- A comprehensive system of free everything for everyone forever (except for the ruling class which The Revolution will continue to address).
- 100% taxation.
- Billions and billions and billions and billions and billions and billions and billions and billions of dollars for education, so that parents can work continuously while we nourish the minds of our nation's children so that they will not grow into greedy war-mongering capitalists.
Yes we can!
Yes we did!
