Joe Biden Aims to Put '720 Million' Women to Work. There's Just One Problem
PJ Media ^ | 09/18/2019 | Tyler O' Neil

On Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden said his childcare tax credit would put "720 million" women into the workforce. The problem? There were only 327.1 million people in America in 2018, according to the Census Bureau. The bureau's "population clock" estimated the current population at 329.7 million as of Tuesday evening.

"If you get a tax break for a racehorse, why in god’s name couldn’t we provide an $8,000 tax credit for everybody who has childcare costs? It would put 720 million women back in the workforce," Biden said at a "Workers 2020" summit put on by the Philadelphia AFL-CIO.

Biden clearly misspoke, but these gaffes are becoming more frequent. The former vice president recently doubled down on a story about pinning a Silver Star on a war hero in Afghanistan that The Washington Post debunked.

In recent weeks, Biden: claimed the Heritage Foundation said Trump's tax cuts didn't work; claimed that he was vice president during the Parkland shooting last year; said that "poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids;" mixed up Margaret Thatcher with Theresa May and Angela Merkel; claimed that 40 students were shot at Kent State in 1970 — rather than the 13 who were shot; claimed that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. were killed in the 1970s — rather than in 1968; and more. He mixed up the locations of the tragic shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

While he remains the frontrunner in the 2020 Democratic nomination race, Biden's gaffes and worries about his age may threaten his campaign. A Democratic pollster recently called his polling lead "deceptive." Yet Democrats may be unable to rid themselves of this troublesome gaffetastic frontrunner. After all, Biden's lead has been consistent.

Clearly he’s adding in the undocumented illegal immigrants that will flood the country if he’s elected.

720 million? Sounds like that’s a dogwhistle for a MASSIVE increase in female immigrants. :)

Here’s a crazy thought. Encourage women to be wives and mothers. Stop the collapse of civilization.

Even if it’s kids of citizens, they’re not my ####ing kids.

I didn’t tell anyone to have them unless they could afford them.

I don’t care what tax bracket the person is in.

Have a kid if you can afford it.

Or don’t.

Considering the field with which he is running all these gaffes may seem minor compared to all the garbage clinging to the others! At this point I don’t think it matter who the Progs nominate. None of them can beat President Trump! In the end Biden may just be the most expendable to them!

He’s counting all the “new Americans” that aren’t here yet.

Biden's fixing to create jobs for women in China, India, Africa, and Latin America.

Four people were killed at Kent State University in May 1970. Only two of those were in the crowd of protesters--the other two were in a parking lot some distance away which happened to be in the line of fire. Classic case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I don't know if all of the wounded were students or if some were faculty, staff, or people who just happened to be on campus that day.
