Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the health summit: "It's about jobs. In it's life, it [the health bill] will create 4 million jobs -- 400,000 jobs almost immediately."[Link added]
Despite the fact that I don't believe those numbers for a minute, what can she and her party possibly be thinking? Do they really believe that 400,000 jobs created by government edict and paid fully by the shrinking number of American workers in the private sector are really an answer?
Of course this is the woman who once proclaimed,
Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500 million Americans lose their jobs.
So, I guess I've answered my own question.
