There are 306 million Americans alive today so where did Nancy Pelosi get the other 194 million figure from? She is using the scare tactics and it is so wrong. I wish the folks in your district do not re-elect her when her turn is over. She is over herself.

This reminds me of the Indian proverb that says "Politicains promiseto build a bridge where there is no river (water).

50 million is not unfathomable and I'm sure that is what she meant.

She meant 500 thousand. I can't believe none of you knew that. I knew it instantly. I dislike Pelosi as much as the next guy, but 3 pages of total cluelessness without a lick of logic kind of boggles my brain. And you're supposed to be critical thinkers? :shk:



When host Chris Wallace corrected her and asked if she meant 500,000 jobs.

"What did I say, million?" asked Pelosi, adding that it "feels like 500 million."

"Some 500,000 Americans will lose their jobs each month until we have a recovery package," she said.

Anyone who has listened to the news has heard that figure repeated over and over...

50 million per month? I don't even think 50 million at one time is a likely number to ever happen. Things are bad, but they're not that bad. We have less unemployment now than we did under Jimmy Carter, just as a reference.
