Surprisingly, the sun rose this morning, even in the face of the ballyhooed sequester. In even better news, it has been revealed that despite years of Obama deliberately driving up unemployment by every means possible in order to increase government dependence, there are still at least 170 million jobs left in the country. There must be, because Rep. Maxine Waters shrieks:
“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.”
Bad as that might sound, imagine if we hadn’t flushed a $trillion down the toilet with the Stimulus porkfest. Waters’s colleague Nancy Pelosi informed us that America would lose 500,000,000 jobs for every month it didn’t pass. That means that if the looting spree had been stopped, by now we would have lost 24,500,000,000 jobs.
Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) said that if the sequester goes into effect, women who are victims of domestic violence will be “forced to stay in their homes with their abuser” at the “hands of the GOP.”
Never mind that the sequester came out of Obama’s White House.
In case anyone is taking this farce seriously, this graph from Zero Hedge adds a little perspective:
