Well then make the case that private jobs were dying before Obama. And if Obama is good for the nation why haven't those private jobs returned?
By the way, since you are implying that you have more than half a brain just how many government jobs would it take in a pool of 155 million jobs, to significantly impact the percentages?
The social policies of all three governments were formed by a
particularly difficult beginning. The Chilean economy went through a deep financial crisis in 1982,
similar in severity to Argentina’s crisis of 2001. In 1982 and 1983, Chile’s GDP fell by 16 percent.
The collapse of the financial sector cost Chilean taxpayers between 30 and 40 percent of GDP.
Unemployment shot up to 30 percent. Around 50 percent of the population fell below the poverty
line. Extreme poverty affected 30 percent of the population.
Starting in 1985, the focus of economic policies shifted toward financial solvency and
economic growth. Exports grew rapidly and unemployment went down. On the poverty front,
however, results were less successful. People living below the poverty line still represented 45
percent of the population in 1987. Additionally, a key decision by the Pinochet government to
reduce taxes and government expenditures in 1988 had a further negative impact in social policies.
The decrease in social expenditures was equivalent to 3 percent of GDP, resulting in severe
deterioration in the coverage and quality of public health services, lower wages for teachers, and
lower pensions for the elderly. http://info.worldbank.org/etools/doc...%20Summary.pdf
They lowered the unemployment rate by between
0.1 percentage points and 0.8 percentage points
