Dem congressman: We ‘didn’t know what the hell was going on’ when we passed Obama stimulus [VIDEO]

Published: 3:01 PM 12/16/2011 | Updated: 12:50 AM 12/17/2011

By Nicholas Ballasy

California Democratic Congressman Mike Honda, a member of the Budget and Appropriations Committees, told The Daily Caller that Democrats in Congress passed the $825 billion Recovery Act because they “didn’t know what the hell was going on” with the economy. He also said that Congress needs to “increase our deficit right now” by passing more stimulus spending.

TheDC asked Rep. Honda of the Congressional Progressive Caucus about similarities between the proposed American Dream for the 99 Percent Act and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2009.

“The stimulus bill, which was under the other administration, was put together because we didn’t know what the hell was going on and you know, and we were trying to do things that we thought might help stimulate the economy,” he told TheDC at the Capitol.

“We set aside quite a bit of money for what we call ‘shovel ready projects’ which we thought would create jobs right away but it didn’t. It took a few more months and so and predicting unemployment, the 8 percent, the 9 percent — that could have been anything from people looking, continue to get, look for part time jobs or employment.

Here's the video interview:

My Comments: If I had done my job this bad at work before retirement, and my only excuse to my employer was that "I did not know what was going on", I would have been immediately terminated.

Flush the big toilet in Washington Dc and vote out ALL incumbents.

Does it really suprise anyone that they didn't know what was going on with the economy when they passed the porkulous bill. They didn't even know what was in Obamacare and they passed that!
What a suprise that none of it worked!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

They didn't what was going on in the stimulus bill.

They didn't know what as in the Obamacare bill.

They didn't know guns given to drug cartels in Mexico would be bad.

Seems to me, they should just stop and do nothing.

Al least the man that does nothing does nothing wrong.

Need a lesson in how good these stimulus packages work. Look at Japan and the seven stimulus packages that they passed and are still paying the price for 20 years later. They call the first 10 years the lost decade because none of the stimulus packages worked, the current 10 years is trying to dig out of the mountain of debt that is still strangling their economy.

Look up the definition of insanity and then let's go do the same thing. We need to make sure we know what we are doing.

lets face it, we're being run by lawyers and as we all know, lawyers can't find their a$$'s with both hands when it comes to financial issues, other than billing/screwing their clients, which in this case, is US!!!

They have the criminal mentality. No need to budget your spending when it's so easy to just steal more.

Thats why the left does not produce a budget. The last budget the Obummer put out, even his friends in the Dem party laughed so hard it fell right off the edge of the desk and into the trash can.

If they produced more budgets, then they would be telling the American people what they wish to spend money on and how in writing.

That is not something they wish to do.

They just wish to run spending bills right down to the wire that places more and more uncertainty in the private sector. Then, blame it all on the right.

Thats called a plan with intent.
