And you vetoed the Keystone XL Pipeline because…?
The February jobs report came in with 295,000 jobs added, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.5 percent — supposedly a sign of a slow, but steadily improving economy. But the unemployment rate increased by 354,000 newly unemployed, meaning a net negative of 59,000 fewer people employed and the 5.5 percent dropped only because it is a percentage of a smaller labor force.
I don’t get it. Am I somehow misunderstanding? I am under the impression that the President simply adds up the “jobs added” each month, ignores the newly unemployed that should have been subtracted, and comes up with a big lie of a recovering economy. There are 92,898,000 people of working age no longer looking for employment.
These are the same people who think a $18 trillion national debt doesn’t really need to be paid back, and the president’s proposed budget is a perfectly reasonable document.
