Duh… Pelosi Calls For Tax Cut Extensions For 160,000,000 Working Americans – Too Bad There Are Only 140,500,000 Americans Working Today

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.

    no, no, no, this is their “new” math! you know, the math system where any number can mean “any” thing, it doesn’t need to add up, subtract properly, no multiplication or division complications, etc. it’s similar to algebra, where a letter can be “any” number. now any number can mean “any” thing the proglibtards want it to!!! just look at all the great examples piglosi’s already given us, every dollar of unemployment equals 2 dollars of spending ability, extending unemployment benefits equals over 600K new jobs, etc!! see, any number really can mean “any” thing!!!!

    Nancy, the San Francisco Treat, Pelosi is using “Chicago” voting numbers, you know, the dead vote.

  • Patty

    She had to say this before she read it, the employment figures that is.
    Seems this is taste of how things will get better the closer we get to election time. The numbers for unemployed will get down to 8%, or better, economic growth will be better and the Obama media will speak of him like he has parted the seas.

  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs

    The woman has lost her mind.

    Can you imagine what would happen if people would begin to pray to remove the evil, the hate, the lies, the greed that she holds in her heart, soul, mind and body?

    Her supporters like the higher number.

  • From the human that claims unemployment checks = employment.

    Perhaps Pelosi was the inspiration for that Barbie that said “Math is hard!”

  • Mike Whitty

    Maybe she’s counting the 19.5 million additional workers who would be in the labor force if her immigration policies were in effect?

    Does your 140.5 million workers include state and local workers from Massachusetts as well as a few other states that do not participate in social security and are therefore not effected by the tax.

    How many of the 140k work for the government and don’t pay Social Security?

    Obama used that figure { 160 million} before Pelosi did. I wondered at the time why noone was challenging him on that number.

  • jaycee

    She is including the ones getting paid under the table, but those workers pay no taxes already so they should not count.
