Unemployment Rate Going Down While 1.2 Million More People Out of Labor Force Last Month


web posted February 6, 2012

COLUMN – If you only listen to the mainstream media or far left blogs, the recent announcement of the unemployment rate dropping to 8.3% is great news, especially for those seeking President Obama's reelection. What the mainstream media neglects to inform you about is that in order to make the unemploement rate drop they had to eliminate 1.2 million unemployed people over the last month from the roll. They simply are not counted.

Pretty neat trick if you can get away with it, however: even using the US Dept. of Labor's own reports, the true unemployment rate is 15.1%, down from 15.2% in December for the same reason.
 
Since Obama took office in 2009, there was 65.7% of the population participating in the job market. Under his administration, that percentage rate has fallen to a near record low of 63.7% and is in a steady decline. The last time things were this bad Jimmy Carter was president.

The labor force increased from 153.9 million to 154.4 million, meaning those not in the labor force surged from 86.7 million to 87.9 million.

But, somehow, the real facts are concealed because the media leans way left and they want Obama reelected and have shown they will paint whatever rosy picture they have to, willingly, to protect him.

It is the uncomfortable facts that liberals hate, so they would rather not discuss them. Obama is wonderful and America is doing great.

Record high debt, the number of people who cannot find jobs continues to increase, gas prices skyrocketing along with food prices. Only 29% of voters think we are heading in the wrong direction - unless you watch or read the so-called "unbiased reporting" of the major media.

America cannot withstand another four years of Obama. He stated when he took office that was going to "fundamentally change America". That's one promise he kept, to our nation's detriment.
