31 million Americans are currently out of work. But, rather than focus on job creation the Pelosi-Obama regime has taken over car companies, nationalized student loans, nationalized health care, sued Arizona for supporting immigration law and shut down deep oil production in the Gulf of Mexico. They’ve punished producers and redistributed wealth. They’ve attacked, and slandered and smeared opponents and hardworking Americans.
American Observer recently created a video to show the record job losses since Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid took over Congress in 2007.
It’s not a pretty picture:
According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are nearly 31 million people currently unemployed — that’s including those involuntarily working parttime and those who want a job, but have given up on trying to find one. In the face of the worst economic upheaval since the Great Depression, millions of Americans are hurting. “The Decline: The Geography of a Recession,” as created by labor writer LaToya Egwuekwe, serves as a vivid representation of just how much. Watch the deteriorating transformation of the U.S. economy from January 2007 — approximately one year before the start of the recession — to the most recent unemployment data available today.
Jobless claims today jumped to their highest level in almost 6 months.
