House Minority Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., today attacked House Republicans for passing legislation that would allegedly "destroy 2 million jobs," as her office claimed that the Obamacare repeal bill alone would "destroy more than 300,000 jobs," according to her office.

Pretty funny considering this administration is doing everything it can to put everyone out of work and on the gub'ment dole.

.gov jobs are not real jobs so no great loss.

We're deluding ourselves. Our nation will collapse, and right in front of our eyes, and not one of us will lift a finger in any meaningful way to stop it.

Jobs don't matter. Efficient production matters. Obamacare is a massive misallocation of resources to inefficient uses. Allowing those resources to be allocated to the uses that people want the most (i.e., that produce the most profit) will allow a larger amount of desirable goods and services to be produced (while less-valued goods and services (i.e., government bullshit) will be produced less).

The result will be a net benefit to the US and to the world (and a loss to government functionaries and their shit-eating hangers on, which is always good).

yep it probably would kill 300k government jobs. Would spare a few million though.

I wish someone would repeal and destroy her job.

Not enough people care yet.

The fact that you've implied that you believe her made up number scares me.

Just so. Gubmint workers working for a corrupt gubmint and belonging to a corrupt union. A few million would be called "A good first step".

Whenever they talk about jobs being lost, they are talking about government jobs.
They only care about govt jobs. Fuck the private sector.

Even if the jobs weren't govt jobs and were HMO jobs, that is good. Getting rid of the HMOs will reduce the cost of health care. HMO CEOs with their big bonuses do nothing but increase costs.

Why hasn't she stroked out yet?

Good.

Those jobs need to be destroyed if they are predicated on unconstitutional mandates.

"Make work" for the sake of creating jobs is not an economically sound long term plan.

Employment is a problem that takes care of itself when you do the right things to promote economic growth. Any politician that uses jobs as the primary motivator for a piece of legislation is blowing smoke up your ass.

Why anyone cares what that moonbat thinks is beyond me. The only thing that elevates her drivel from the likes of McKinney, Jackson or that dumbass from Georgia who was worried about Guam tipping over is the she somehow manages to stay somewhat on topic.

Fuck em.

Pelosi doesn't even believe her own bullshit.


Her only core belief is that it is great for Pelosi to screw the little people out of millions and millions of dollars for her own personal gain.

Those deranged comments that spew out of her mouth is her just making shit up that sounds good to the freak show that is her district.

destroying 300K government jobs and saving the tax payers trillions of dollars in just the first year. I can live with that.

I've long thought your posts to be thoughtful, well written, and accurate. This one is no exception.

it might destroy 300k jobs they created, but it might also create more jobs on the repeal alone.

We have to repeal it so that you can find out what jobs it will destroy
