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.

I learned from Cortez that if you have two jobs, you count twice. A rough calculation tells me that the ladies are penciled in for about three jobs apiece counting the children. Think how happy they’ll all be!

Again let me congratulate the people of Delaware for showing why the Founding Fathers were right in not allowing the direct election of senators.

36+ years of electing & empowering this Buffoon & his corrupt family!

720 women? Clearly, I've been blessed to live amongst the Amazon women. So they cut off one mammary gland...there's still 720 million breastices to go around.

Maybe he wants to ship out more jobs to third world countries.

Encourage women to be wives and mothers.

They started putting that down in the fifties. A housewife was a parasite and there were too many children already.

700,000,000+?

What? Biden is simply using AOC arithmetic. Remember how the cupid stunt explained the decrease in unemployment, with everyone working two jobs? Easy peasy.

Each woman will have three jobs... That's what his aide explained...

To be fair, he was going to say 720,000, and in mid sentence, after saying 720 wanted to up it to a million and it came out 720 million.

would put “720 million” women into the workforce.
******************
Remember, Biden is a globalist. He is not referring to American women. He plans to ship everything overseas, following in his master’s footsteps.

The left has problems with numbers: Waters, Maxine - “We don’t need to be having something like sequestration that’s going to cause these jobs losses, over 170 million jobs that could be lost – and so he made it very clear he’s not opposed to cuts but cuts must be done over a long period of time and in a very planned way rather than this blunt cutting that will be done by sequestration.”
