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?
More of that Democrat Change of Tone … US Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-D) Says “The tea party can go straight to hell”
Imagine that, a Democrat telling those that want America to be fiscally responsible to go to hell …
Democrat US Representative Maxine Waters seems to have no problem in going against Barack Obama’s request for a change of tone in Washington, DC. At a jobs event over the weekend, Watters said, “I’m not afraid of anybody.” “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to hell.”
Big words from the ethically challenged SWAMP QUEEN. How come Maxine Watters was not willing to fight for jobs when the Democrats controlled the House, Senate and Presidency? Where was she then? Oh that’s right, too busy destroying the economy and jobs with the $787 billion stimulus package and Obamacare.
The event occurred a day after new statistics were released showing that California’s jobless rate last month went up to 12%, from 11.8%. California now has the second-highest rate of unemployment in the nation, trailing only Nevada at 12.9%, and its jobless rate is well above the U.S. average of 9.1%.
Waters vowed to push Congress to focus on creating more jobs. “I’m not afraid of anybody,” said Waters. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned, the ‘tea party’ can go straight to hell.”
More than 1,000 people attended “Kitchen Table Summit,” which was designed to give the jobless an opportunity to vent to elected officials and share their struggles about finding a job.
So let’s understand this, the event was nothing more than a “bitch-fest” rather than any kind of jobs summit that would be beneficial for people to make themselves more marketable to gain employment? Really? There’s a plan put forth by Democrats.
With the comments that Watters has made regarding jobs, I wonder why she has not done Obama to do the same? It has been Obama who has failed the economy and made promises of job creation that have been en epic fail except to increase the debt. Sorry, Maxine and her ilk have no one but Obama and their own pathetic, misguided policies of job creation to blame.
Charlie Rangel’s “Blago” Moment & Democrat Headache … “Hey, if I was you I may want me to go away too. I am not going away! I am here!”
Rangel … “I am not going away.” What is going away is the Democrat control in DC.
Scandal plagued NY Congressman Charlie Rangel’s 20 minute rant was pure “political theatre” and for Democrats an Excedrin PM headache and Pepto Bismol moment all rolled up in one. Rangel had his “Blago” moment as he defensively went on the defensive in his House speech stating that he was not going away. Rangel asks as he begins his speech, “Why did I take the floor today …” Many Democrats were asking the same question.
Rangel says … “I am not going away!”
It was a rant that slammed everyone from House Democrats to Pres. Barack Obama – and he promised not to go away anytime soon. Watch this video.
This was a very senior member of Congress, who clearly thinks he’s been wronged by both the press and his colleagues, sounding off about exactly the way he feels. And he’s pissed off. Here’s a selection of some of the best quotes:
Charlie Rangel even found time in his rant to go after President Barack Obama. Do we sense trouble in Democrat paradise?
Waters claims she was just helping a minority owned struggling bank was she has always done, never mind that her husband was a major share holder. Yep, no conflict of interest here.
More from Nancy Pelosi’s Democratc most ethical House of Representative’s ever … California Democrat Maxine Waters was charged with three ethics violation, although she vows to fight them and claims her innocense. The 10 page statement of alleged violations and other documents released Monday sets the stage for a trial by a subcommittee of the ethics panel later this fall. Waters has requested a trial before this years midterm elections.
As Rep. Maxine Waters was warned against interceding on behalf of a bank with ties to her husband, her chief of staff, who is also her grandson, was “actively involved” in working to help the institution, according to a House Ethics Committee report released Monday that accuses the longtime Los Angeles political figure of three ethics violations.
Waters was accused of violating three rules — one that requires its members to “behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House,” a second that prohibits lawmakers from using their influence for personal benefit and a third forbidding the dispensing of favors.
Water’s and Charlie Rangel’s ethics hearings should do wonders for the Democrat brand and image heading into the 2010 midterm elections.
