As if wasting hundreds of millions of dollars over the past two years on pet projects flippantly referred to as “stimulus” was not enough, with unemployment not improving, the today the Democrats are talking about spending even more.

Democratic leaders called on Wednesday for additional spending to boost the sluggish U.S. economy, setting up a fresh hurdle for bipartisan efforts in Washington to head off a government debt default this summer.

Proving he has zero understanding of who or what actually creates jobs, Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Dick Durbin said:

“Get the recovery right before you get in this deficit-cutting mode. Get people back to work. Let’s start moving in that direction.”

How was it that Einstein defined insanity? Right. Einstein was not that bright anyway, I guess.
