Great news on the economy for Barry & his puppets, the reported unemployment number for January is ONLY 7.9%! Whew, that was close. If you happen to read a little deeper in that report, you will find out that all those hard working ,underpaid, public sector union members, reporting this data, had to dig and dig, but they managed to find some “missing” new jobs for Nov and Dec. This is called “revision”, it’s always used to make our messiah’s failed policies look a lot better then they really are. ONLY 8.5 million lost jobs during Barry’s recovery summer that has lasted 4 years now, with 4 more to go. Don’t be surprised if they start counting students as working soon, to keep that number under 8%. They don’t lie - much!

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...
