Maxine Waters: EVERYONE in America Will Lose Their Job Because of Sequestration

If Congress allows sequestration cuts to take effect, more than 170 million Americans could lose their jobs, according to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.)

“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 job losses — over 170 million jobs that could be lost,” Waters said.

The Blaze points out how amazing a 170 million job loss would be:
There’s just one problem with her estimation — and it’s a big one. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are only 134 million people working in the United States. So by Waters’ estimation, the sequester cuts would be so apocalyptic that nearly 40 million people who don’t have jobs would become even more unemployed.

I say, give Maxine Waters the lifetime Washington Monument Achievement Award.

  1. Refer to my comment yesterday regarding fecal flotation.

  2. For the sake of the women and children of American...tell her to shut the f%&k up!

  3. Maxine Water's Rap sheet from wikipedia:
    "In 2010 Waters came under investigation for ethics violations and was accused by a House panel of at least one ethics violation related to her efforts to help OneUnited Bank, where her husband had been a director and in which he had stock holdings, receive federal aid.[49] Waters' husband is a stockholder and former director of OneUnited Bank and the bank's executives were major contributors to her campaigns. In September 2008, Waters arranged meetings between U.S. Treasury Department officials and OneUnited Bank, so that the bank could plead for federal cash. It had been heavily invested in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, and its capital was "all but wiped out" after the U.S. government took them over. The bank received $12 million in Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) money."
    How is this woman still in congress?

  4. God please grant us term limits.

  5. Perhaps it's not 40 million people who are "more unemployed". Instead, the 40 million are employed in an alternate universe where central-planning works, printed money has real value, and the less you work, the more you make.

  6. While I watched Maxine Waters drivel on, I could hear the song from South Park:

    Here she is, Biggest Douche of the Universe
    In all the galaxies there's no bigger douche than you!
    You've reached the top, the pinnacle of douchedom
    Good going douche,
    Your dreams have come true!

    Then I reminded myself, nearly all of Washington could win that award every year. There's just too much competition!
