Every month! According to Nancy Pelosi, a woman with not too firm a grasp on arithmetic--or reality.
Pelosi says that if legislators don't move quickly to pass President Barack Obama's stimulus package, "500 million Americans lose their jobs". According to her, this sobering scenario will occur every month without proper government action.
However, according to the US census bureau, the current population of residents in the country stands at about 305,000,000....
[T]there could be many a wayward American (almost 200 million of them) in other parts of the globe, who soon will lose their jobs just because of the simple fact that they're American. And everything that goes on within US borders will always affect them, no matter where they dwell.
But basically, all Americans (and then some) will be unemployed if the Senate doesn't get moving on this legislation.
We'd better encourage both legal and illegal immigration ASAP if we want to meet Speaker Pelosi's quotas.
