Obama Regime: 2.5M People Losing Their Jobs Just A “Small Percentage of the Economy”
Tammy Bruce ^ | 2/4/14 | Tammy Bruce

Posted on 02/04/2014 6:14:24 PM PST by Nachum

The Congressional Budget Office says ObamaCare is a job killer. But we already knew that, and have been saying so for four years. Now the Fed is catching up a little bit, yet losing 2-2.5 million jobs is the tip of the iceberg. “President Barack Obama’s healthcare law will reduce American workforce participation by the equivalent of 2 million full-time jobs in 2017, the Congressional Budget Office said on Tuesday in a report…”

What does the White House think of this horrible reality for at least 2 million people and their families? It’s just a “small percentage of the economy.” Remember I warned you about what happens when people are the budget. You get cut, you’re just a number on a piece of paper, “a percentage” of one thing or another.

A recession is when your neighbor loses his job.

A depression is when you lose your job.

A recovery is when 0bama loses his job.

I can bet the 2.5 million losers don’t see their paycheck a small percentage of anything, if it is the only one in the house.

A couple million jobs here and a couple million there and pretty soon you no longer have enough people working to support the economy.

To paraphrase Vladimir Lenin, one person successfully navigating healthcare.gov is a miracle, while millions losing jobs is just a statistic.

Well, it’s 1/3rd of the jobs he last week claimed to have created. Okay, he’s right. It’s not many jobs when you think of it like that.

We have 40 million people out of work, and not 2.5 million or even 7 million jobs created are many jobs. I can say this with confidence, because we don’t have 7 million more U. S. workers than we had in 2008.

If we have even 2 million more jobs than 2008, I’ll be surprised. I haven’t looked recently, but it’s my perception we still have less jobs in the U. S. than at the George Bush high in about the spring of 2008.

Obama, like Clinton, is an especially good liar.

If you don’t like Obama, you can Impeach him in 2014.

Period.

And how do we go about doing that? We have GOP-E’s in the Senate who would never allow their darling Obama to get impeached..if the media in this country actually did their damn jobs Obama would have been impeached years ago

The House Impeaches the perp., and the Senate removes the perp. from office.

Thus, it is all in the capable hands of Obamacrat John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner, unless our sorry RINO House members overthrow Boehner - - - .

Obama cares so much about the little guy that he just made 2.5 million more little guys.

He has such compassion for his inferiors!

Here is the bottom line: there are less people working today than when Ophonybama took office!

That is the only relevant statistic that matters.

Speaking of Small Minds.

I was behind a Lexus SUV today. An older Gal was driving it.

On the back bumper was a “Women For Obama” Sticker.

First one of those I’ve seen. Idiots come in all Ages and both Genders. Well, Democrats come in more than two Genders.

Now back to the topic of this Thread...

I will be your slave if i do not have to work. All you have to do is feed me, clothe me, shelter me, provide my health care needs, and I need a computer, a cell phone. and like to spend a few weeks at the beach every few months, and I will need to borrow the car with a full tank of gas and bring it back near empty.

Those are my kids!

Yet if these clowns create 250 make-work-government-jobs they'll do a victory dance and the lame stream media will orgasm.
We're talking about an additional 2,500,000 jobs lost to a private sector already on the ropes because of the willfully destructive policies of these absolute scumbags in the Obama Regime.

Only destructive agenda items get into the LIEberal/Socialist/Marxist/Fascist playbook.

Otherwise, would we be in this mess?

A Dem congressman from Wisconsin said this is beneficial because those affected can spend more time with family (I’m not making this up folks).
