500 Million Americans

“Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs”

~  Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House

Oh yeah, she said it.  On CNN.  Watch the clip HERE if you don’t believe me.

Now, if every American of working age was like me, and had two jobs, and lost BOTH of them EVERY MONTH, that might come close to equaling 500 million JOBS lost every month, but even if you count children and retirees, there aren’t 500 million Americans TOTAL!

Gee, maybe that’s why the dems think that a trillion dollar “stimulus” package is no big deal…they think there are a billions of working Americans contributing to the tax base…

Good grief.

There are only 300 million people that live in the United States, Ms. Pelosi.   At least try to get the most basic facts straight.

Okay, maybe she misspoke and meant 500, or 500 thousand.  But she didn’t catch herself.  Probably because politicians are so used to making facts up, to twisting facts, and to dealing with tax dollar numbers that are so humongous, that the difference between 500, 500 thousand, 500 million, 500 billion and 500 trillion completely loses its significance…
