Math is hard

In February 2009, then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said something about how "500 million Americans lose their jobs."

Then on Thursday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) indicated that the impending sequestration is also going to result in dire unemployment, to the tune of "over 170 million jobs that could be lost."

If one is to put a positive spin on this, the unemployment rate went from 167% of American citizens (not adults, not workforce members, but citizens) to 57% in four years.
