Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson appeared on The Neil Cavuto Show to tout the Progressive Caucus’ “Peoples’ Budget” to increase spending by $1.5 trillion dollars. Cavuto, (who clearly lacks “vision”) keeps telling her, “but we’re broke.” Luckily for us, she knows where to find the money for more “investments”.
Watching this, you won’t know whether to laugh or cry:
“The Peoples’ Budget”?
No I remember where I’ve heard that name before. She’s the Dallas brainiac who awarded 23 Congressional Black Caucus scholarships worth $31,000 to relatives, and cronies:
We should totally trust this woman to be responsible with more of “the peoples” money.
Trevor Loudon has more on The Congressional Progressive Caucus, and The Peoples’ Budget”:
The Congressional Progressive Caucus has issued an alternative budget calling for increased public spending, a “green economy”, defense cuts and significant tax hikes, in order to right the U.S.’s struggling economy.
The Progressive Caucus is effectively the Congressional wing of Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA, and mirrors those organization’s policy positions on every significant issue.
From the Communist Party USA’s Peoples World
In a vigorous response to the House Republicans’ slash-and-burn 2012 budget proposals, the Congressional Progressive Caucus last week released its own proposal, “The People’s Budget,” which it says reflects “the values and priorities of working families in this country.”
