Unemployment down to 5.9% .How many simpletons will believe the wascally wepublicans instead of their lying eyes?
That is the GOP for you, quick to place blame on the administration during periods of higher unemployment but very slow to give credit otherwise, hypocrites to a man or should it be to a person?
This DOESN'T take into account the people who have stopped looking for jobs altogether. Also, according to the Washington Post, although unemployment rates have fallen, there was no significant increases in wages. A report from Value Walk dated October 7, 2014 indicated that although unemployment is 5.9%. incomes have stagnated. It also reported that the number of people that have given up in finding jobs altogether does not count as unemployed.
Oh so funny, Mr. Holden, you have quite the delicious gift of comedy.
They must be counting the people on public assistance as employed.
they are presenting the numbers as favorable to them as possible ,however since every previous administration has done the same the end result is that even if they are not the true numbers they are a true state of the economy because you are comparing apples to apples.
In the UK we certainly do count some of those on public assistance as employed but then we also count those who've been sanctioned for such grave errors as turning up five minutes late for an appointment as employed as well even though without any income whatsoever they have little or no chance of actually finding employment even if there was any to be had.
Real unemployment is MUCH HIGHER than the 5.9% that is indicated. This is just a midterm ploy to ease the minds of the American masses about the Obama administration. The unemployment situation is ACTUALLY WORSE than what it is perceived to be.

Impeachment of a President One would think that the impeachment of a president is not conducive in showing him support.”Give him a chance,” people say. President Obama, to be exact, has been in office for a year now. He has done a lot of damage in that year. I have seen not one...

What I like about Obama.1) I like the fact that he's been on TV everyday, sometime two three times.2) I like the fact that he speaks about the Health Plan, but does have one of his own, and apparently hasn't read any that are in Congress or the Senate.3) I like that unemployment is at 9.7%, and 17%...

One of my biggest frustrations with the Obama administration is they are not good at promoting their achievements. Although that could be the fault of the so-called "liberal media" which is all corporate owned and anything but liberal.Anyway, I came across this article and thought I would...
