America’s Discontent

youre welcomeSome post State-Of-The-Union notes from a local newspaper columnist, Salena Zito…

“Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction,’ he [Obama] said. He shamelessly went on to embellish statistics, claiming 14 million new jobs, including 900,000 manufacturing jobs.  Afterward, FactCheck.orgshowed that it’s more like 9 million jobs, many of them lower-paying service jobs. And, over Obama’s time in office, manufacturing jobs have plummeted by 230,000.  In short, if you “made” something in the Obama economy, you lost your job; if you “served” someone, you got a job — but probably needed two, so you could make ends meet.”
