Pelosi Claims Repeal of ‘Obamacare’ Would ‘Destroy 300,000 Jobs’
by Becket Adams – The Blaze – January 5, 2012
Remember when House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) infamously stated back in 2009: “[E]very month we do not have an economic recovery package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs”?
At the time, a few critics dared to point out that Pelosi’s numbers were, at best, questionable. If her calculations were correct, and taking into consideration the time she made this claim, America stood to lose 6 billion jobs in 2009 alone.
Obviously, this is impossible.
Pelosi’s dire prediction was swiftly disproved. It’s no secret that, last time the U.S. Census Bureau checked, the U.S. has a population of about 312 million people (and of course not all of them have jobs).
