Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters this week that 160 million Americans will have their taxes increased if the payroll tax cut extension does not pass.
160,000,000 working Americans?
That’s more Americans than there are in the entire work American workforce.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are only 140.5 million Americans employed today.
Thanks to Pelosi and Barack Obama the work force is at its lowest rate in years.
By the way… 3,000 mainstream media outlets ran with this bogus number.
