What Happened to the 400,000 Jobs Pelosi Promised after Healthcare ‘Reform’ Passed?

From my original post at Big Government[1]

Back in February 2010, Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised the American people[2] that approximately 400,000 jobs would be created due to the passage of the healthcare bill.

Remember Pelosi promised this:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the health summit: “It’s about jobs. In it’s life, it [the health bill] will create 4 million jobs – 400,000 jobs almost immediately.”

Well, it’s almost November and the economy still hasn’t gotten any better[3] and we have no evidence[4] of those jobs being created.:  I can only assume that she didn’t mean this[5] either:

The irony of accountability indeed.:  Americans are: still asking and the rhetoric is not resonating.:  So,: Speaker Pelosi, where are the jobs[6]?

It’s not a matter of rhetoric, it’s a matter of the American dream being shattered for so many hard-working Americans as a direct result of Obama’s entitlement-laden, job-killing policies.:  Such a boastful result when the Democrats fight for “working Americans” as they say—specifically referencing unions[7].

Time to decode the Democrat narrative::  Democrats standing up: for working families, those that want to work, workers, labor. OK, unions[8].:  It’s any wonder so many think know that Obama’s policies are anti-business[9].
