Unemployment is STILL Going up, but is being hidden by a declining labor participation rate. And, quite possible, the unemployment rate figures in 2012 were fabricated numbers----that remains to be seen.<quoted text>
In 2008 this country was deep in a recession, the US auto industry was near bankruptcy, and unemployment was going up.
In 2012 the recession ended, the stock market doubled in value, unemployment was falling, the US auto industry was setting record profits, Corporate America was also setting record profits.
AND ALL THOSE LIES the right claimed, they failed to PROVE.
That is why he got my vote and a majority of US voting citizens.
FORD did fine the Capitalistic Way----GM got government subsidies to keep them going.
CORPORATE AMERICA is doing fine by sending jobs overseas. The RICH getting RICHER; no surprise there.
And the "RECESSION" occured after Reid/Pelosi took over control of Congress. Is it really over? Another unanswered question. The GOVERNMENT is spending TRILLIONS in borrowed or printed money to prop up the economy. In my mind, a healthy economy sustains itself.
