Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who believes pensions have not in fact burdened state budgets, made the bold assertion: “The mantra that the Recovery (stimulus) Act did not work is such baloney.”
The Florida Congresswoman made the statement on Fox News Monday in defense of President Obama’s $447 billion American Jobs Act.
Schultz, who thinks Obama “really knocked it out of the park” with his latest jobs plan, said the act will be paid for by the “wealthy and more fortunate” who, according to Schultz, are “not paying their fair share now:”
“At the end of the day, we have to make sure that we don’t continue to deepen our problems by laying off more teachers, firefighters and police officers. We have to make sure we put construction workers back to work like the American Jobs Plan would do by investing in the infrastructure we need, and we have to make sure that this is paid for by folks who are not paying their fair share now, making sure that the wealthy and more fortunate step up to the plate, and that’s how we’re going to get this done.”
