Obama moves U.S. unemployment rate to 3-year-low
Republican efforts to block economic growth for political gain appear to be failing. A new report shows that under the Obama Administration, the unemployment rate has fallen to a level not seen in three years.
The new job numbers take much of the bite out of GOP election year rhetoric that blames President Obama for slow economic growth. It also dispells the validity of republican claims that the wealthy need more tax breaks in order to create jobs.
If the unemployment rate continues to fall and the US economy maintains its course on growth, Barack Obama may be closer than ever to winning re-election.
Political spin works well as a tool to motivate fear among the general population. But what really influences voters is personal.
When Americans see their paychecks remain steady and their lifestyles improve, what politicians say becomes far less important than what they do or don't do.
