Pelosi lied, jobs died ... unemployment rate hits 8.9%
And that's not all she's lying about either. OK, just a reminder of what Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, said back in February about how every day that the Obama stimulus package went by without being approved that 500,000,000 jobs in America would be lost. Well, the Labour Department released it's newest unemployment figures today and it's reporting that employers have cut another 539,000 U.S. jobs, raising the unemployment figure up to 8.9%. That's the highest since 1983.
Now I'm well aware that Ms. Pelosi made a huge gaffe (what else is new) by saying 500 million jobs when she meant to say 500 thousand jobs. Point is, we are now into the third month of Obama's stimulus package being passed and we're still losing more then 500k jobs a month, which proves that Obama's policies have done nothing to reverse job losses as Ms. Pelosi claimed they would.
