If only that was the real number which we all know it isn't but is just manipulation and more lies out of this administration and is just the beginning. The tragedy in all this is the commie in chief's plans for our once great company are all working. This sorry sob stops at nothing and all we can do now is sit back and watch it all happen before our very eyes because he is transforming every fiber of this nation. Will not only tear this nation apart but our families and our friends and their families. My heart breaks for this country, my children and my grandchildren. We threw away the last possible chance to turn this around - guess it just was not important enough. AND now we all pay the price. God help us all.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has released the latest unemployment numbers for January. The unemployment rate has jumped back up to 7.9 percent with just 157,000 jobs being added to the economy. The number of unemployed and under-employed persons still sits at an alarming number.

The number of unemployed persons, at 12.3 million, was little changed in January. The
unemployment rate was 7.9 percent and has been at or near that level since September 2012.

In January, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was
about unchanged...
