Video du jour: Maxine Waters claims 170M jobs could be lost under sequester

Maxine WatersAnd here you thought Obama was overplaying his hand when it came to pronouncements of doom and gloom over the sequester, which is due to kick in tomorrow! Not to be outdone, the ever-redoubtable Rep. Maxine Waters revealed that sequestration could cost the nation 170 million jobs. Yet, as Weasel Zippers points out, the nation has only 134 million people in the workforce.

Any act of government that could result in the loss of 127 percent of the nation’s jobs does sound pretty odious. Here is Waters. The money portion of the video begins at around the 1-minute mark.
