In this video from Real Clear Politics, Sen. Barbara Boxer claims that 8100 people will die if Republicans kill a provision in the Clean Air Act. Not a nice round number like 8000, mind you, but 8100, which is a bit more specific and implies real certainty. How does she know? Where did the number come from? Does Boxer have a hotline to the Almighty? California is fortunate in being represented in the Senate by such an omniscient creature.
