Delusional?: DNC Chair Denies Unemployment Has Risen Under Obama

Posted By: The P/Oed Patriot

During an interview on Fox News DNC Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, denied that unemployment has gone up under the Obama Administration.

Here is the video:

According to Hot Air, Schultz is Delusional because it’s obvious, even to this one eyed man, that unemployment has indeed gone up:

“Here are a few facts that seem to have gotten past Wasserman Shultz as the head of a major political party, and as a member of Congress:

  • Jobless rate in January 2009: 7.8%.  Jobless rate in November 2011: 8.6%.
  • Number of employed in January 2009, in thousands: 133,563.  In November 2011: 131,708
  • Civilian participation rate in January 2009: 65.7%.  In November 2011: 64.0%
  • Unemployment level in January 2009, in thousands: 11,984.  In November 2011: 13,303
  • Number of people not in labor force, January 2009, in thousands: 80,554.  In November 2011: 86,558

The number of jobs has declined almost 2 million during Obama’s term even without accounting for the 3 million-plus working-age adults who joined the population while Obama has been President, while the number of people not in the labor force has risen by six million.”
