It’s probably true that she

It’s probably true that she misspoke, but it is equally true, as this video attests to, that she has still the very alphabet to learn on a subject of vast importance before she can lecture the public about the perceived evils for which, if she understood her subject at hand, she has collaborated in bringing about: to wit, her belief in the beneficence of a spendthrift, as opposed to a parsimonious, government.

No one behind her even

No one behind her even flinched when she said170 million. They didn't know it was wrong. The way she spoke of QE hinted it was the first time she's ever heard of it. No slack at all for these people.

Leader Pelosi?

They call her "Leader Pelosi" now? Heil ...

Dems are fascists, so her party title must be "La Ducessa"

Pelosi is italian, and the Democrats are fascist dogs, so her party title must be "La Ducessa" Pelosi.

Manda la in cullo

La Ducessa, ma va va. Quella e una troia. Debreve chiamarla una putana, una troia. Pui meglio chiama la facia di cazzo.

I wish I could translate it for you, but that might get me banned for language.

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

no wonder we have such huge deficits

the feds are employing the world

Cut her some slack. The lady obviously misspoke. However

aside from saying 170 million instead of 170 thousand,

SHE'S OUT OF HER FREAKIN' GOURD!

So perhaps a little less slack should be cut...

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Perhaps she must "misremembered" the speaking lines

she was given?

No slack for Waters! She is a serial liar with a fat mouth

No slack for Waters! She is a serial liar with a long history of running off her fat mouth for the flimsiest gains. The hyperpartisanship that's paralyzed Congress is due in great part to her bold leadership in upping hte ante on stupid hyperbole.

Moron Maxine is always saying "every dollar the government spends adds four dollars in growth to the economy."

Other nitwit macroeconomic geniuses in the Democrat party have the decency to keep figures somewhat arguable, such as $1.50 in amplification effect.

But no! Not Moronic Maxine! She's gotta claim a big 4 to 1 win for her real constituents, the bloated bureaucratic tyranny.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Typical fearmongering!

Ever wonder why these idiots think we are so stupid?!!!
Cuts always affect the poor, elderly, women and children...
Never are the wages of congress, govt workers, presidential vacations or any other frivolous items in danger!!!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

The hell are her eyebrows

The hell are her eyebrows doing?

I hope my tax $s aren't going to her hair & makeup staff --

Didn't even know we had that many jobs. I guess they really were lying about the unemployment rate, it was actually much lower if 170 million people are holding a job now.

Also, check this out

Also, check this out and correlate it with the fall shown in the graph at my previous comment - and quoting (emphasis mine):

http://www.bls.gov/cps/cpsdisability.htm/

"Beginning with the release of the January 2010 data on February 5, 2010, information on the employment status of persons by disability status was included as part of the monthly Employment Situation news release in table A-6. Additional information is available in an annual news release focusing on the employment status of persons with a disability."

Quite interesting a coincidence, don't you think?

"Focusing" - I'd be VERY interested to know how exactly they "focused" and how it affected their stats book keeping.

Indeed: first, we see a graph where the labor participation (over 16 of age) percentage is diving since 2007... okay, here again:

http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS12300000

... and then stops diving, quite abruptly, to remain quasi constant after Q1 2010 and on, stabilizing at around 58.5% ... just as the BLS started that change to integrate "the employment status of persons with a disability"...

Ahhh... Statistics! You gotta love them.

Don't forget that these disabled individuals are paid +/- $3/hr

a la employment programs like 'sheltered industries' that pay on a piece-work scale meaning you get paid based on what you produce... at an average rate of around 2-3 bucks per hour.

When I was 'legally challenged' I qualified to participate in just such a program and was disgusted by how the paper mills exploited people through this 'back on their feet' program.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

Maybe that lady can explain us how 58.5% of the population 16 year old of age (and above) - ABLE TO WORK - can add up to 170 millions... as I suspect we're lucky if that's still a mere 140 millions, per the trend shown in above graph and this:

Government jobs lost

Government jobs lost are not a bad thing. But G.W. Bush and Obama can be blamed for selling our soul to most every other country. Guess who was behind it all starting in 1965?

It gets worse. 300 Brazilian jobs may also be lost.

And a Brazilian is WAY more than a million...

Don't get to pull it out that often.

This guy felt compelled to comment on the lady's statements

This guy felt compelled to comment on the lady's statements, under this title:

Economic Collapse, Armageddon. All jobs will be lost

He makes a pretty accurate, and visual, point... that I essentially agree with, beyond the personal rendering. ;)

I'm sure that

dingy lady couldn't even spell sequestration but people are suppose to listen to her, hell she thinks Bennie is a competent economist. I wish they would stop teasing us with this talk of shit-canning government employees, I can't take many more disappointments.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

Omg! that is a lot of job losses

But that lady in the background on the right scares me more.
