48 of 50 states have lost jobs since they rammed through their Trillion dollar stimulus bill. The Obama-Pelosi economic plan resulted in a cumulative 7.5 million jobs deficit. In fact, Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.
Tonight Barack Obama told a Las Vegas audience that he needs Harry Reid to continue his disastrous economic agenda.
And, he was serious.
President Barack Obama urged Nevadans to re-elect Harry Reid, saying he needs the Senate majority leader to continue work on the policies that brought the U.S. economy out of the worst recession since the Great Depression.
“If I’m going to be able to help middle-class families all across this country live out their dreams, then I want to have a partner in the United States Senate named Harry Reid,” Obama told a Las Vegas rally tonight on the third day of a five-state western campaign swing.
Reid is locked in a tight race against Republican Sharron Angle, a Tea Party candidate. The contest illustrates Democrats’ difficulties as they seek to retain control of Congress in the Nov. 2 elections. Nevada’s jobless rate is 14.4 percent, highest in the U.S., and the home foreclosure rate is five times the national average, according to RealtyTrac Inc. of Irvine, California.
Reid, a four-term senator, got 61 percent of the vote in 2004; this year, the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report rates the contest a tossup.
