Because Blowing $1 Trillion Was Not Enough… Biden Calls for More Stimulus to Lift Economy

In July 2010 Joe Biden admitted to Jake Tapper that the stimulus had failed.
He blamed Republicans.

Now he wants another one.
Joe Biden called for another stimulus today… Because the first one was such a great success.
Reuters reported:

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Friday the U.S. economy needed more stimulus to get it moving, putting in a plug for government measures shortly before the White House unveils new proposals to boost job growth.

Concluding a trip to Asia that focused primarily on China, Biden also said a final decision had not been made on whether Washington would sell Lockheed Martin (LMT.N) F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan and noted Beijing knew America viewed its one-child policy as “abhorrent.”

Reacting to a leadership switch at the top of ratings agency Standard & Poor’s after it downgraded the United States, Biden said his “instinct” was that pressure from disgruntled businesses may have influenced the change, though he made clear that he did not know the agency’s internal workings.
