    Thanks in advance.
    Use the same BLS website you used to get the unemployent rate showing it's increased from 7.8% to 8.3% during Obama's first 36 months.

    2 million jobs were lost!
    You understand why the numbers are adjusted for seasonal factors, right? Raw employment drops significantly EVERY January due to the termination of short-term holiday employees.

    If you look at the data, it went down from Nov to Dec.

    Yes, and that's been true EVERY year going back to 2002.

    So ... how's that challenge coming along. ... ? Have you found normalized unemployment data for the dates before 2005?

    Just one year will do. I mean if you are so confident in your challenge, you have the data right? Right??
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Passing ARRA helped turn losing 500,000 per month into gaining 150,000 jobs per month. My wife is a recruiter who stopped working 3 years. The job market has turned around that she went back to work late last year. Then there's my 401K which is up substantially since the stock market has responded so strongly to Obama's policies.

    How did that help you and your family? further you seem to ignore that those 500,000 per month simply dropped out of the labor force and no longer were counted. Obama policies of causing job losses improved the bottomline of companies by causing a reduction in payroll expense. Great job,Obama and typical liberal selfishness

    I already answered thar. I told you can use the same BLS data you used to determine the unemployment rate went from 7.8% to 8.3% under Obama.
