Maxine Waters 170 million jobs lost

Where oh where is the main stream media on this one? Congresswoman Maxine Waters, know for being nearly as gaffe prone as VP Joe Biden, has come out with what is probably the whopper of her career, but let's not hold our breath to hear this on the network news any time soon.

At a press conference yesterday to discuss the looming budget cuts democrats are claiming will wreak havoc upon the nation, Ms Waters made the astonishing claim that over 170 million jobs will be lost if sequestration happens and these budget cuts take place. Well that certainly would be incredible because there are only 134,688,000 people employed in the entire country, so we would need to find an additional 35 million people to fire to meet Ms Waters ridiculous claim.

If Mitt Romney, George W Bush, Dan Quayle, Paul Ryan or any other Republican or conservative radio or anchorperson had made such a stunning claim, it would be the headline story on all 3 major network evening news programs, but because these bogus facts fit the liberal agenda, you will only see it on blogs like this one or on YouTube.

Read the gist of what Maxine said below and watch the video after that to hear it with your own ears.

"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 – and so he made it very clear he’s not opposed to cuts but cuts must be done over a long period of time and in a very planned way rather than this blunt cutting that will be done by sequestration."
