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 guess Joe doesn’t keep up with current events ... The women’s unemployment rate dropped to 3.6% in September 2018 – matching the lowest level since 1953. With 134,000 new jobs created last month, 4.2 million new jobs have been created since November 2016.

The more I hear from Biden, the more I think tptb are purposely putting him out there. I don’t believe the dems that stupid; they are wily and he is a distraction. He keeps our side busy and confident. I don’t buy it for a minute. I am not a big conspiracy theorist but this is so blatant.

I was just about to say there aren’t 729 million PEOPLE in the United States, even if you count the 40 million ILLEGALS and the all the people in the territories of the US.

The Demorats don’t have a chance in Hell to beat the Trumpster in 2020, that being said I believe that Dem’s are setting the gafster Biden up like a head pin to go against Trump.

“It would put 720 million women back in the workforce,” Biden said at a “Workers 2020” summit put on by the Philadelphia AFL-CIO. “

given that his Senate career was kick-started with the help of mob enforcers from mob-infested unions in Delaware, Jo is completely comfortable with the notion of “no-show” jobs ...

Where does he plan to find all of these women, since there are not even 150 million unemployed women in the entire world?

With his stupidity, that’s two problems.

He meant it — 720 million women, 75 percent of whom do not currently live in the US or have US citizenship. Plugs is all-in for open borders.

Meanwhile, job creation is at the highest level, hmm, probably since 1942-43:

Plugs is a gaffe machine, so savor every minute of his march to defeat in Nov 2020.
