Obama is famous for saying, “If you like your health insurance, you can keep it.” At the time he uttered those words, he knew he was lying to the American people, as internal White House reports predicted 93 million Americans would lose their health insurance.

Well, there’s a new lie in town. “If you like your job, you can keep it.” Actually… probably not.
Every day, Americans are fed a new stream of lies about the job situation in our country. In reality, there is no recovery or positive jobs news. There is only a middle class jobs depression.
My new book, The Murder of the Middle Class is a factual account of how America is being destroyed by the purposeful destruction of the middle class. At the core of the plan—wiping out good paying, full-time, middle class jobs.
Exhibit A would be the most recent June and July job reports. The mainstream media reported these last two reports as a “great success.” The truth is you are being lied to. The reports are a middle class jobs Armageddon.
In June, 288,000 new jobs were created. Sounds great, right? The media trumpeted that number. No one bothered to explain what kind of jobs were created. The net positive 288,000 jobs breaks down to 523,000 full-time jobs lost and over 800,000 part-time jobs gained. (June Full-Time Jobs Plunge)
The fact is, since the start of this year almost all new jobs are crappy part-time jobs. The Congressional Budget Office predicted Obamacare would destroy full-time jobs…and that is exactly what it has done. (Obamacare Slowing Growth)
Take New York City. From June 2008 (just before Obama took office and his policies began to be implemented) until this spring, 191,000 low wage jobs were created. That’s compared to just 3,475 middle class jobs over the same time period. (Death of the Middle Class Job)
