It turns out somebody should have watched the State of the Union speech. Obama proposed yet another bad, Soviet-style, central planning program to fix the economy.
At a closed-door meeting between President Barack Obama and House Democrats, [Michigan Democratic Rep. Dan] Kildee introduced himself as a freshman, to which Obama said, “Wow, you’re really classing up the place then.”
Kildee then proceeded to ask what one person described as a somewhat “long-winded” question about the importance of creating jobs for his economically distraught district.
“I can tell you’re a freshman because you didn’t pay much attention to the State of the Union,” Obama joked. “I talked about that.”
Amid the resulting laughter, House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra of California then offered to provide Kildee a printout of the speech.
Obama was referring to his $1 billion proposal for 15 manufacturing “innovation centers,” the details of which are still somewhat hazy.
Because nobody does innovation like federal bureaucrats.
Weren’t there about 15 districts in The Hunger Games? One Innovation Center for each of them. How convenient.
