Elizabeth Warren Ad Calls for Infrastructure Spending at Chinese Levels

Elizabeth Warren is running for the U.S. Senate (Massachusetts).

She is an ultra Liberal and a Harvard Professor.

She was recently "outed" for claiming unproven Cherokee heritage.
(and making money off the claim)

In a campaign ad, she compares the U.S. to China in a round-a-bout way.

Comparing any U.S. policy to a Communist policy is very questionable many would say

(especially in an election)

What would She do if elected to the U.S. Senate ??

story from Breitbart

During the London Olympics opening ceremony on television this past Friday, local stations across Massachusetts ran a new ad from Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren. Warren, the Democratic challenger to incumbent Republican Scott Brown, calls on America to allocate government spending more like Communist China.

According to Ms. Warren:

We've got bridges and roads in need of repair and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren’t we rebuilding America? Our competitors are putting people to work, building a future. China invests 9% of its GDP in infrastructure. America? We’re at just 2.4%. We can do better.



Hold the phone a minute there Liz......

Ira Stoll at the New York Sun critiques both the content of Ms. Warren's advertisement and the political judgment of her campaign for running it:

The first problem is mathematical. U.S. gross domestic product is about $15 trillion a year. Increasing infrastructure “investment” to the 9% Chinese level that Ms. Warren cites would mean an additional $1 trillion a year in government spending. That’s an immense spending increase. To put it in context, the entire federal government spent about $3.6 trillion in 2011, on revenues of about $2.3 trillion.
Where would the money come from ?

China invests 9% of its GDP in infrastructure. America? We're at just 2.4%. We can do better. We can build a foundation for a strong new economy and get people in MA to work right now. I'm Elizabeth Warren and I approve this message. Let's go to work.

Civilian Conservation Corps

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a public work relief program that operated from 1933 to 1942 in the United States for unemployed, unmarried men from relief families, ages 17–23. A part of the New Deal of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it provided unskilled manual labor jobs related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural lands owned by federal, state and local governments. The CCC was designed to provide employment for young men in relief families who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression while at the same time implementing a general natural resource conservation program in every state and territory. Maximum enrollment at any one time was 300,000; in nine years 2.5 million young men participated.

Just wondering, but where does our Military Spending stand as far as percentage of GDP?? Couldnt you, just a thought here, stop the spending over seas and invest that money in Infrastructure?? Or whatever else you want to spend that money on.

Well if you spend anytime on roads and bridges in red states you might agree with her. I agree with her that were not spending enough, but time will more than bear this out.

Honestly you wanna see jobs come back to America rebuild the electrical grid, water, sewer, roads and bridges and industry would return in mass. But if your power goes out every time a storm rolls by why would any company wanna deal this this?

Wow, I'll be thrilled to see Chinese like spending levels. The moment after she craps about 16 trillion dollars for us to at least break even and start spending with real currency.

I don't know where she figures this is being paid for in that wonderful world she apparently inhabits, but I believe our nation is far beyond simply broke. We're upside down to the point of passing out.

....and her solution is to radically increase spending.
Sometimes the ignorance is beyond words with politicians, it truly is.

Only commies build roads and bridges and crap just so just anybody can use them. This is Amurica and we do not do that socialist BS. If it means China swallows us up whole some day, well we will go down with pride.
