The labor participation rate remains at record lows. What that means Barton is that the lowest percentage of able people today actually have a job.

While Obama likes to warp the unemployment numbers to make himself look good, the average Joe out in the real world can't find a job. Those that can are working part time minimum wage jobs just to scrape by.

Also, in the last 5 years we have seen a 50% rise in the number of people living in poverty, which is also a record, as well as record numbers of people on food stamps.

Welcome to the Obama economy.

It really "grinds your gears" that President Obama is doing well, doesn't it?

He's not doing well at all Barton. He's a colossal failure and every American is paying the price.

Yet again you offer a typical liberal b.s. response. You run away from the facts I posted that prove the economy remains in the toilet due chiefly to Obama's failed economic policies that were rubber stamped by the Democrat Congress during his first two years in office.

It truly is amazing that you're so deluded that mountains of factual evidence can't penetrate the dense fog that blocks off your view of reality. Yes, liberalism is a mental disease and you suffer from it immensely.
