The Waters who Cried 170 Million Wolves … Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) Claims, “Over 170 Million Jobs Could Be Lost” Due To Sequestration
The Democrat sequestration insanity continues …
It’s the end of times America, welcome to the exaggeration of Obama and Democrats with sequestration. Forget the Mayan end of the world predictions, we have the ridiculous comments of California Democrat US Rep. Maxine Waters. She stated in the latest Democrat “Chicken Little”, the sky is falling that sequester cuts mean “over 170 million jobs could be lost.” Maybe Rep. Waters should have had Dr. Evil deliver the statement?
Representative Waters, if you are going to cry wolf, at least get your numbers right so you don’t look like a complete, lying fool, only a complete fool. But as the Ace of Spades says, “Math iz hard.”
Yesterday we did have Mr. Bernanke in our committee and he came to tell us what he’s doing with quantitative easing and that is trying to stimulate the economy with the bond purchases that he’s been doing because he’s trying to keep the interest rates low and jobs – and he said that if sequestration takes place, that’s going to be a great setback. We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these jobs losses, over 170 million jobs that could be lost.
170 MILLION? What an idiot. As stated over at Michelle Malkin.com, “There are around 150 million people employed in the United States at the moment. According to Rep. Maxine Waters, the sequester will have such a devastating impact that all of those people will lose their jobs, and 20 million of them will lose their jobs twice.” Or maybe she is counting 20 million illegals working in the US? But one has to wonder why Democrats like Maxine Waters are so worried about all these jobs lost, isn’t it Democrats and her fellow US Rep. from California Nancy Pelosi who think that unemployment is a boost to the economy?
