It takes 90-125K in jobs to keep up with population growth.
So, beating that number by a 220% to 60%, is "Barely".
Flack is such a nasty f*ck that he can't even say something good about a favorable jobs report.
Nope.
He just can't stand it.
Little girl it take 200,000 a month to expand the economy. Beating your chest over a mediocre report is juvenile. You libtards couldn't squeal loud enough about how bad the economy was with 4.5%-5% unemployment. Now you want to crow at 7.3% how Obama saved the world. I got news for you. It would have done that or better if he did nothing!!!!

You're full of crap as usual Carol. Before the ACA was enacted insurance executives and their minions in the underwriting department could decide who got coverage for healthcare and who couldn't and these decisions were based on making a profit. They can't do that anymore. They can't deny coverage to someone who was a childhood cancer survivor. They can't cut off someone's long term chemotherapy because of some arbitrary lifetime cap. They can't cancel a policy because someone had the audacity to actually get sick.
But you don't care about these people. You continually shill for those who couldn't be bothered to piss on you if you were on fire.
As has been pointed out, the pre-existing conditions part and even the moving away from employer-based health insurance so having coverage follows you from employer to employer were two of the few things everyone agreed upon.

But a train wreck isn't a good thing because a few of the cars and a few people survive it.

Some of these same people have no insurance now. When they ever get on the exchanges, a lot of them will pay a lot more which they can't afford.

The law itself projected that between small businesses, big corporations and the privately insured, over 100 million people will lose their health care and doctors which Obama promised wouldn't happen knowing it was in the law and still said it.

There was a better way to reform health care. We can start over again but Obama won't get to have his name on it. He'd rather it be a disaster than give up his delusional legacy.

The most recent case this comic refers to, of course, is the appeals court verdict upholding Texas's medically unnecessary abortion clinic regulations, which shuttered numerous providers around the state. In a perfect inversion of the law's intent, the judges ruled that “the incidental effect of making it more difficult or more expensive to procure an abortion cannot be enough to invalidate it.” Yes, don't mind that little thing about the clinics closing -- just an incidental side effect!
For more from me on the nationwide attack on reproductive freedom, see this comic I recently drew for the ACLU.

if you are having an abortion-reproductive has nothing remotely to do with it. There is no attack because there is nothing being reproduced.

Here is what you liberals said about Bush, you should give O'bama the same narrative, only O'bama is doing far worse: 10/08/2004 NBCNews:

"In a report seen as a political blow to President Bush, the Labor Department said Friday the economy added just 96,000 jobs last month, far fewer than projected. The final monthly employment report before the Nov. 2 presidential election fell short of estimates it would show about 158,000 new jobs, although the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 5.4 percent, as expected."

*YOU LIBS WERE SCREAMING ABOUT 5.4% UNEMPLOYMENT

And then enter Kerry: "The Kerry campaign issued a nine-page paper comparing Bush’s record on jobs with previous recoveries and with the administration’s own projections.
“Even over this last year, our economy has failed to create even enough jobs to cover new workers coming into the job market, not to speak of the millions who are unemployed, working in part-time or temporary jobs or who have given up and dropped out,” Kerry said in a statement issued by his campaign."

Total gibberish!

Those who have no insurance now will pay more? No duh! Some will likely qualify for Medicaid__others might opt for the penalty for a few years until actually being insured makes more sense financially.

It's a long term proposition with plenty of room for tweaking along the way__the GOP has ignored the issue except when laughing at Hilary and building ACA obstacles.

You're a moron!!!
