When People Repeat Obama’s Job Creation Lie, Show Them THIS

Barack Obama has been boasting more and more how his administration “created” some 15 million jobs. 

That number is, in economist terms, gross negligence, as the following chart so clearly shows:

On the left we see how Obama’s often touted job creation has fallen way short of population growth – meaning more people but fewer jobs is the true hallmark of the Obama economy.

Contrast that to the Ronald Reagan years when job creation greatly outpaced population growth, meaning that for those who wanted to work, they could – and they did.

And then there’s the matter of labor participation. During the Obama years, the percentage of the population who were working and paying taxes, plummeted. During the Reagan years, it skyrocketed.

So to anyone who tries to repeat the Obama claim about his having created some 15 million jobs, show them the above chart in order to give them some much needed perspective.

The Obama economy has been horrible for America, and especially horrible for the Middle Class – period.

U.S. Economy Shrinks (AGAIN) While Hillary Clinton Promises More Of The Same

1.2% GDP growth is a near-flat-line, representing a stalled economy, millions of unemployed, and a far less bright future.

In America, 1.2% just got worse.

A LOT worse.

And Hillary Clinton is promising more of the same, including a $2 trillion dollar tax hike, more debt, and fewer jobs.

To those who might try and defend the Obama economic record (and the media has plenty such tools) simply keep in mind these stark facts regarding how the U.S. economy has stalled for during the Obama era:

From 1947 to 2004, the American economy AVERAGED 3.45% growth per year.

During the years of Barack Obama, that average growth has hovered at just 1%, and is currently getting worse, not better. (Last quarter it was at 0.8%)

The only time the American economy grew less than during the Obama years was during the Great Depression.

That isn’t an economic record – that is a disaster.

And it’s killing good, high-paying jobs in this country, too.

From 1948 to 2006, job growth averaged 1.7%. It was the great American blessing to be born and/or a part of this country.

Now? Not so much. Under Barack Obama, job growth is about one-third that at just 0.5%%, and most of those jobs are government/tax-payer funded, meaning under current economic conditions, they add to the debt and cost taxpayers more. And with fewer real jobs being created, and thus fewer taxpayers to pay for government spending, this country is on a crash course to total economic collapse.

Hillary Clinton’s answer is to double-down on the Obama economy of more taxes, more regulations, more government, fewer jobs, and fewer dollars in your own pocket.

If voters want more of the same, vote Hillary Clinton.

If they are ready to truly try something different, Donald Trump will win in November.

Until that choice is made, the American economy will continue to suffer and decline, which a growing number are starting to wonder if that very thing was Barack Obama’s plan all along.

Why Nobody Is Touting The, “Obama Miracle” (Except For Hillary Clinton)

The Obama economic record is tepid at best. Stagnant wage growth, record-high government assistance numbers (food stamp use alone has DOUBLED) and American families today have a net worth that is LESS than what it was in 2008.

Unemployment is relatively low because millions have simply left the job market – perhaps never to return. Middle Class jobs are shipped overseas, and they too, are said to never be returning. 

Simply put, and pardon the expression, the Obama economic record SUCKS – and yet it is that same record Hillary Clinton is now promising more of.

Tonight during her nomination acceptance speech, Hillary Clinton yelled out to the audience how Barack Obama had created, “Twelve million new jobs!” She nodded her head as the crowed cheered, implying she was prepared to do the same if voters made her the nation’s next president.

**AHEM**

Ronald Reagan created more than 20 million new jobs during his tenure – and that job creating was extended well into the next decade. (And was done with a population of 70 million fewer people than today!) And these were not low-wage service sector jobs that require a person to work TWO jobs to try and stay afloat, but rather higher-paying Middle Class jobs that were, and might once again, be the backbone of the U.S. economy. Things were going so well in fact, that in 1983 during a world economic summit, the West German Chancellor demanded the U.S. delegation tell him about the great, “American miracle” that was by then a vastly improved economy that had become the envy of the world. 

NOBODY out there is asking to hear about the “Obama miracle” because it has been far more nightmare than miracle.

For example, this depressing graphic makes clear how incomes under the Barack Obama government have plummeted:

Note how Reagan oversaw a spike in income growth that benefited ALL Americans.

And also note how those incomes dropped sharply under Obama and have yet to recover. There is no more clear sign of the false claim of “Obama jobs” being a benefit to the U.S. economy. Those jobs are too often part time/low wage endeavors that only make families have to work harder and harder for less and less.

And apparently Black Lives DON’T matter to Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, because the Obama economy has been particular bad for Black Americans: (this is a fact the Mainstream Media continues to largely ignore. DON’T LET THEM)

Compare that to how Black Americans did when Ronald Reagan was in the White House:

(the green line is Reagan, the red line is Obama)

You won’t see the above information on your Mainstream Media report, will you? Instead, we will continue to hear the shrill cries from Democrats, including both Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton, about how they are the ones to represent minorities in America. Well, if those minorities don’t want a job, then yes, by all means, Hillary Clinton should be your choice because she is promising to continue the same, tepid, job-killing policies of Barack Obama.

Oh, and perhaps the greatest ticking time bomb of all is this statistic, which frankly, might do something all the terrorists in the world have yet been able to do – collapse the foundation upon which the entirety of American society is built upon. For those of you who understand numbers, this fact is chilling in its not-so-long-term implications:

Total accumulated debt was at 53 percent of GDP when Reagan left office. Today it is at 102.7 percent of GDP, a level unprecedented since WW II. The debt has exploded by 66 percent in the Obama years.

Think on that. Barack Obama has created a time of deficit spending not seen since WWII.

The question that remains then, is what war has he been waging? Where has all that money gone? Certainly not to defeat ISIS, or compete with China, or stand up to Russia.

Kind of makes you wonder, don’t it?
