The White House is really getting specific when it comes to the unemployment rate.
Rather than 8.3% -- the rounded-up figure -- Obama economic adviser Alan Krueger writes on the White House website that the real jobless rate is 8.254%.
"The household survey showed that the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3% in July (or, more precisely, the rate rose from 8.217% in June to 8.254% in July)," wrote Krueger, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.
@cordle I could not agree more... The democrats in my opinion keeps people struggling and depended on the Government in order to control. They are hypocrites when it comes to freedom and success. Barry Obama and Harry Reid are killing jobs , energy, defense, and dividing our country. Im for a FREEDOM DEFENDER not a community organizer... Unleash the choke holds on the job creators and let's stop this socialist agenda that our country is under. BARRY MUST GO!!!!
"Republican Party spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski said, "23 million people struggling for work isn't a rounding error. And the White House's attempts to argue show just how out of touch they are.""
Manipulation of the facts and economy with the truth are part of the training of politicians. Nobody really believes government stats today.
The real problem America has with modern Democrats is the blatantly obvious moral decline which they legislate for, and the creeping socialism which they are introducing. Both of which destroy decent society and nations.
