Looking at The Blaze and I found these numbers. I posted some highlights of the report, but please do yourself a favor and spend some time looking at this complete report with the charts. Pass the information and link to a friend. We cannot continue to allow the media to misinform the American people into thinking Obama is fixing the economy.

. . .2.8 million Americans left labor force to achieve this fabulous reduction in the unemployment rate.

. . .The percentage of Americans in the labor force of 64.2% is the lowest since 1983.

. . .The employment to population ratio of 58.5% is also the lowest since 1983. These atrocious figures are after a supposed economic recovery that has been underway for the last 18 months.

. . .a real unemployment rate of 12%.

. . .There is now an all-time high of 44.2 million Americans and 20.7 million households in the food stamp program. This is 14.3% of the American population and 18% of all the households.

. . .in 2007 there were 146 million Americans employed, or 63% of the working age population. Today, there are 139.9 million Americans employed, or 58.5% of the working age population. Over this time frame, an additional 7.1 million Americans entered the working age population.

I always have trouble believing the UE numbers.

Also, there's tons to be made if more Americans are on food stamps. Banks like JP Morgan rake in the bucks when more and more Americans use them. We live in a world of deceit.

What's really funny is how you fail to address the facts.

The Blaze? Sounds more like an STD as opposed to a reliable news source.

The facts: the economy was in free fall (see graph) when Obama came into Office in Jan 2009. Since then the graph shows that unemployment is dropping and the employment/pop ratio has stabilized & is no longer dropping. The participation rate is continuing it's 10 year downward trend.
