Republicans were right…Nah, I’m just kidding.

Twitter Updates


I was going to write today about all the recent events about which Republicans have been wrong. Rather than write what will likely be a very, very long post, I will break it down into many smaller ones. Here goes the first in a series:

Unemployment rate on Barack Obama’s first month as President: 8.2% in February 2009
Before the end of his first year in office it has risen to: 10% by October 2009

Date that Obamacare was signed into law: March 12, 2010
Unemployment rate on that date: 9.9%

Date that John Boehner (and virtually every other Repub) started calling Obamacare a “jobkiller”: Jan 7th, 2011
Unemployment rate on that date: 9.1%
Unemployment rate today:6.1%

Amount of time that Obamacare has been the law: 4.3 years
Decrease in unemployment rate in that time:3.0%, or nearly one-third

Total amount of jobs that have been “killed” by Obamacare: None. 4.5 million jobs have been added since Obamacare signed into law.

Hey, I’m jus’ sayin’

More to come…
