Why are so many of us not working?

On July 25, 2012, President Obama declared his economic plan had worked.

Apparently, his dictionary was written by George Orwell.

Since Barack took office,

  • the number of people who need food stamps has increased by 45%;
  • the Unemployment Rate has been over 8% for all but one month; and,
  • the Employment-to-Population ratio has been under 60% for all but two months.

Because Obama’s plan “worked” so well, 23 million Americans are currently unemployed, underemployed or have given up hope. The majority of them are Black, Women and/or Young … the very people who did the most to put Obama into the Oval Office in January 2009.
