“He has no jobs bill”
The hypocrisy of this woman to sneer at whatever Trump may or may not do to benefit “his rich friends.” During the recession in 2009, when the rest of us were getting poorer, HER NET WORTH DOUBLED.
As for Trump not having some kind of jobs bill … this is typical Dem thinking that you have to LEGISLATE to get jobs. No, you have to GET OUT OF THE WAY and let entrepreneurs create jobs. Trump has done a lot already to free up the private sector to create jobs, something Pelosi either can’t understand or refuses to admit.
And the jobs numbers show that it’s already working.
During Obama’s first month in office, the Employment Population Ratio was 60.6%. Despite the so-called “action” Pelosi says was taken by Obama “in his first four weeks”, this number DROPPED into the 58s and stayed stuck there until June 2014.
During all 8 years that Obama was in office, it only got as high as 59.9% twice, once in March of 2016 and again in January of 2017, the same month that Trump took over.
Below is a historical look at Employment Population Ratios correlated with political party control in D.C. I think it’s fairly obvious that Republicans are much better at promoting JOBS than Democrats are.
