Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee: "Math iz hard"

Maxine Waters really amped up the sequester scare tactics today:

... We donít need to be having something like sequestration thatís going to cause these jobs losses, over 170 million jobs that could be lost ...

Per the BLS, as of January 2013 there were 143.3 million people employed in the US. The total civilian workforce is 155.7 million people.

Looking at the bright side, though ... to lose over 170 million jobs, we must briefly go to 109% of the workforce being employed first. So there's that.

(h/t John E.)
