Sequester Will Destroy 170 Million Jobs

I confess that I missed this (until now).The-Sequester-Bee

Democrat Maxine Waters (D- Doh!), relieved that she is not in prison for all the corruption she has engaged in while elected to the US House of representatives, is making up for that by just being herself.

“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.”

As Charles C.W. Cooke points out at NRO’s The Corner, there are only about 134 million jobs in America.

I guess that explains why the Democrats are so wound up.  If cutting just 44 billion (this year) could result in the end of every job in America, PLUS the demise of 36 million more jobs that don’t even exist yet (maybe next year when the other sequester shoe drops)….that is pretty serious.

On the bright side the end of every job in the nation, as a result of the sequester,  means that everyone–that’s everyone–will be unemployed AND on food stamps, which as any prominent Democrat will tell you, “stimulates the economy,”  gives you “the biggest bang for your buck,” and are the “most stimulative measures to boost growth.”

Here’s Waters.
