We already know that unemployment and food stamps are are great ways to stimulate the economy and create jobs, and Massachusetts Rep. Ed Markey now adds government regulations to the list.

Transcript by way of Weasel Zippers:

“Now the Texas governor Rick Perry has also said that the EPA is a job killer and called for president Obama to put a moratorium on all regulations for at least six months. This despite independent research that says environmental regulations actually create new jobs. In his book, Perry called global warming “one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight.”

More regulations = a healthier economy and more jobs! And if you’re assuming those jobs are probably just more regulators, well, I’ve got news for you — you’re right:

Markey isn’t alone in his “regulator stimulus” claim:

Not everyone in the Obama administration sees a problem. The EPA thinks new regulations can fuel the economy and hiring. The EPA wrote in February that “in periods of high unemployment, an increase in labor demand due to regulation may have a stimulative effect that results in a net increase in overall employment.”

Think of the possibilities — Shutting down little kids’ lemonade stands alone could provide thousands of jobs in the near future!

Go to Regulations.gov to see just how many ways the government is stimulating the economy.
