Yesterday, federal US District Judge, Andrew Hanen, temporarily put a stop to President Obama’s executive amnesty. Needless to say, major news networks were not happy about this decision:
In the video, the news networks highlighted the 5 million people that were affected by this decision.
They use the number 5 million as if it’s a lot, does anyone remember when 15 million was considered a small percentage of the population?
Think back to when Obama care first went into effect. Then presidential spokesperson, Jay Carney, said this about the 15 million individuals who were losing their health insurance:
That’s the universe we’re talking about, 5 percent of the population, In some of the coverage of this issue in the last several days, you would think that you were talking about 75 percent or 80 percent or 60 percent of the American population.
5 million people or 15 million people it’s all relative I guess.
Relative to your ideology and who’s affected.
