    Now the people who might have had new jobs can join or remain on food stamps and continue to collect unemployment, like Nancy Pelosi

    and other prominent Democrats have stated:

    ” growing food stamp and unemployment rolls contribute to growing the economy”.

    So it looks like a win win situation here.

    If anyone with a degree in economics can comment on how that economic model works please feel free to explain it, Mr Krugman are you


    You won a Nobel prize in economics, right?
