Congresswoman Maxine Waters Claims 170 Million Jobs Will Be Lost Through Sequestration

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 2, 2013

Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Democrat from California, spoke for a group of congressional women on sequestration.  It was a sad example of just how ignorant our Washington politicians are.

Typical of the Left’s sky is falling claims concerning sequestration, she ran off a litany of negative consequences, especially focused on women, single mothers and the poor.  For this group, she said: “All of the gains we have made will be lost through sequestration.”  Well Ms. Waters, given the sad plight single mothers and the poor in this country, with friends like you who needs enemies.

In a demonstration of Ms. Waters’ ignorance and how bogus the Left’s claims are she said in the video below: “If sequestration takes place, that’s going to be a great setback.  We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these job losses — over 170 million jobs that could be lost”.  This is a remarkable claim given that there are only about 130 million working people in the United States.  Even scarier, Waters is the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee.  Just imagine if Sarah Palin or any woman on the Right had made such a stupid statement.

Sequestration involves only $85 billion in cuts for a federal budget that is over $3 trillion.  Give such a trivial requirement to anyone who has run a business and the problem would be resolved in a matter of hours.  The fact that in over a year the government has not been able to reach a resolution is proof of just how dysfunctional it is.  Given their inability to govern, radical actions to attack Washington’s spending problem including sequestration are required.
