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

Back in February 2010, Democrat House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised the American people 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 and we have no evidence of those jobs being created. I can only assume that she didn’t mean this either:

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

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.

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