White House Admits GOP Could Take House Back… But, Will Stick With Failed Policies Anyway
Barack Obama is the worst president in history on job creation–
According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. shed 2.3 million jobs since February 2009, Obama’s first full month in office. Since Obama’s election in 2008, the US economy has shed 4.4 million jobs. That’s worse than Herbert Hoover.
The US economy lost another 125,000 jobs last month.
Barack Obama’s Keynesian policies have failed miserably. Democrats blew a Trillion dollars on a failed stimulus bill and all they managed to do was triple the national deficit in one year.
The national debt will represent 62% of the nation’s economy by the end of this year, the highest percentage since just after World War II.
Despite this, Robert Gibbs admitted today that the Republicans could win back the US House of Representatives in November… but the Obama Administration will continue their failed policies anyway.
Republicans could win control of the House of Representatives in elections in November, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs acknowledged on Sunday.
“There is no doubt there are enough seats at play that could cause Republicans to gain control, there is no doubt about that,” Gibbs told NBC’s “Meet the Press” talk show when asked whether the Democrats would maintain their majority in the House.
All 435 seats in the House are up for grabs in the November 2 election as well as 36 of the 100 seats in the Senate.
President Barack Obama will have a tougher time pushing his political agenda through Congress if Republicans make big gains in November and wipe out Democratic majorities in both the Senate and the House.
In the run-up to the vote, Obama is trying to convince impatient Americans that his economic policies are working and that improvements will take time.
“We understand people are frustrated, everybody is frustrated,” Gibbs said. “Look, the president is frustrated that we haven’t seen greater recovery efforts, but that doesn’t stop us from doing what we know is right, instituting the policies that we know will bring the country back,” he added.
