While President Obama is claiming 4.1 million new jobs in America, the facts tell us a completely different story about the economy: the American economy has created a net 415,000 private sector jobs, which is less than 0.2% of the 155 million-member American workforce. Are we tired of the lies yet?
We have a shrinking workforce problem, and few people in the press are even addressing this issue. Current labor force participation is at 63.5%, its lowest since 1981 … when Americans kicked Carter out of the White House. Why is this percentage so low?
For one thing, Americans are discouraged and demoralized. Obama policies have driven them to creative ways of putting food on the table. Only 1 in 5 unemployed persons are getting any kind of unemployment insurance. Their benefits have run out. What are these people doing? They are lining up at the Social Security Administration to file disability claims. Remember, once you’re on disability, you stay on it for the rest of your life. Disability pays $1,300 a month for being too stressed or pained to work. The number of people drawing food stamps is about one-third of the entire nation.
It’s a predictable cycle, isn't it? No money to spend means no demand for goods, which means no economic growth, which means no jobs, which means more suffering, which means more lies from Obama and the state-run media.
Why isn’t America tired of the empty promises and the outright lies? Do the out of work oil workers and coal workers appreciate how Mr. Obama is handling the economy? I doubt it. Then whom is Obama talking to when he promises a better effort in the next term in office? In my considered opinion Obama has already fixed America —he’s done what he set out to do. He's got much of America on food stamps, welfare, ...
Perhaps unemployment isn't that important to Democrats; maybe what we need is more information about Sandra Fluke's reproductive issues.
