"So if unemployment insurance creates jobs, and the concentration of unemployed is in poverty zones or poor areas, then why would Obama propose tax cuts for these areas to create jobs? Why not just expand unemployment insurance in these areas, because he said today that that creates jobs. That would fix the problem."
"Obama is an absolute economic idiot. He's sitting here, he's touting the benefits of unemployment insurance for the last 20 minutes. And the first thing that comes to my mind is, wait a minute. I thought we had this great economic recovery going because of him and because of his astute, brilliant policies. I thought the president had given us an economic recovery and we're starting to come back here."
"Let's get rid of 'unemployment insurance' and let's call it 'paying people not to work.'"
"We got 91 million people not working in this country and they're all eating. We're paying people not to work."
"We learn that an unemployment check to Kathy will make her turn up her thermostat, which is gonna increase hiring her local utility. But then when the environmentalist wackos find out about this they're gonna storm Kathy's house and they're gonna break her thermostat so that she can't turn it up 'cause that's gonna lead to global warming."
"How cold is it out there? It's so cold an escaped prisoner turned himself in. So cold the Democrats have their hands in their own pockets."
"If we're gonna give Kathy three months of additional unemployment benefits and that's gonna create jobs and grow the economy, doesn't it stand to reason that taking money away from people would hurt the economy and maybe lose jobs, like raising their taxes? I mean, that takes money away from people."
"Doesn't it stand to reason, using the president's own logic, using his own persuasive device, if giving people $125 a week grows the economy and creates jobs, wouldn't taking money away from them do the exact opposite? This is so absurd."
"The president showing up in the East Room of the White House surrounded by victims of his own economy who are instead portrayed as beneficiaries. Everybody out of work in this country today is a victim of Obama economic policies. And he was surrounded by 'em in the White House today disguised as if they were beneficiaries. That is the degree of how sick all this has become."
"By the way, coming up, ladies and gentlemen, the lessons from Diane Sawyer on how to stay warm in the cold. I got it right here. Diane Sawyer on ABC News, and it involves wearing a scarf."
"It's Hate Florida Week. We're gonna be the only ones that are not in the icebox. I mean, even now, while everybody else is below zero on wind chills we're at 55 degrees, and gonna be back to 75 tommorow."
"Barack Obama has, for five years, had control over the US economy. His policies, his specific economic policies are the reason this country is in dire economic straits. Obama's policies are the reason why there is no recovery -- and if you want to call it a recovery, go ahead. If you do, it's the worst recovery in the history of this country."
"Barack Obama and many in his party believe that the founding of United States of America was unjust and unfair and immoral and exploited minorities. His purpose has been to make amends. He's gonna give this country back to the people to whom it really belongs to get the shafted from the days of the Founding Fathers. So in the process, Obama's economic policies are destroying the US economy in order for him to rebuild it in his own socialist image."
"Obamacare is destroying greatest health care system the world has ever known. If you doubt me that Obama's policies are destructive, just look at Obamacare."
"The Republican strategy is to be seen as much like the Democrats as they can so that nobody will say mean things about them. So the transformation of the country is unfolding before our very eyes, and the pressures of the Washington establishment are converting Republicans to go right along with it."
