The U.S. economy added 146,000 jobs in November and the unemployment rate fell to 7.7 percent, the lowest since December 2008. The government said Superstorm Sandy had only a minimal effect on the figures.
The Labor Department's report on Friday offered a mixed picture for the economy.

Hiring remained steady during the storm and in the face of looming tax increases. But the government said employers added 49,000 fewer jobs in October and September than initially estimated.

And the unemployment rate fell to a four-year low in November from 7.9 percent in October mostly because more people stopped looking for work and weren't counted as unemployed.

Thank You President Obama,you are doing a Great Job !!!!

Now get to work you lazy ass Republican congress that are cashing those free Gov checks !!!

Unemployment is heading in the right direction, and has been on a steady trend in that direction for some time.

The economy has been improving slowly over the years.
The stock market is generally looking good.

Millions are insured who previously weren't. We're getting out of those wars we were stuck in, finally. Finally there's some regulations to prevent Wall Street from being completely irresponsible. Our auto-makers are still in business. We've closed the chapter on 9/11 with Bin Laden dead. We're producing more oil.

And somehow all these things have happened under President Obama's watch. He's really done great things for America.

He has kept banks from praying on the customers, he's helped a great number of homeowners, women still have rights in this country, rather than being kept in binders. He's got a responsible vision for paying back the deficit caused by 2 unfunded wars, tax cuts for the wealthy, and the bailouts required to fix the mess the last Republican left us with.

Maybe a lot of people choose to forget that this country was on the brink of total collapse after the policies of the last Republican we let into the White House caught up to us.

And somehow all this has happened while the Republican Party has done EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to prevent progress in America for American Citizens.

Great job, President of the United States of America Barack Obama.

Great job.

Can you only imagine how good things could be if the Republicans quit pouting and actually showed some responsibility and helped America in this recovery?

Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, reached another high in September, according to new data released by the United Stated Department of Agriculture.

The most recent data on SNAP participation were released Friday, and showed that 47,710,324 people were enrolled in the program in September, an increase of 607,559 from the 47,102,765 enrolled in August.

The number of households enrolled in the program also increased from 22,684,463 in August to 22,973,698 in September, an increase of 289,235. The average benefit, according to the new data, was $134.29 per person and $278.89 per household.

Over 12 million people are now unemployed under obama. The obama news casters failed to mention the number of people who have given up any hope of getting jobs, and the fact that the increase in jobs are for seasional employees hired to wrap presents. The unemployment figures shall increase in January. No one employed should be exempt from income taxes, we need to tax the 47% and stop all earned income credit.

You know what the wealthy are going to do? They're going to invest more abroad, they're not going to work as hard, they're not going to pay as much in taxes, they're not going to employ as many people. Their employees are going to pay all the taxes.

Where did you study economics? People invest their money where they can generate the largest return. Leaders of countries who believe high taxes and outrageous regulations will produce higher employment and income for their country are so ignorant.

From the BLS.

More Americans dropped out of the labor force. The participation rate dropped in November, again.

Your next assignment, go find out how many went on the dole.
