Video flashbacks: Pelosi and Wasserman Schultz on the Obama economy

Online video gives us a chance to review today’s unemployment numbers in light of what the Democrats who authored our national economic policies have said would happen, and who should get the credit/blame.

In February 2010, as the Democrats got set for the final passage of ObamaCare, then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised that the health care law would be a massive job creation engine. Video at the link.

“So this bill is not only about the health security of America. It’s about jobs. It is life…it will create 4 million jobs…400,000 jobs almost immediately. Jobs, again, in the health care industry, but in the entrepreneurial world as well.”

As we all know now, ObamaCare did no such thing. Not even close. Unemployment has continued to tick up as the law has created huge uncertainty for most American businesses. So who is to blame?

Take it way, DNC chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz:

“We own the economy. We own the beginning of the turnaround and we want to make sure that we continue that pace of recovery, not go back to the policies of the past under the Bush administration that put us in the ditch in the first place,” Wasserman Schultz told Mike Allen at POLITICO’s ‘Playbook Breakfast.’

That’s from last month. The Democrats broke the economy, and now they own it.
