    Sessions: 'For Every One Job Added, Nearly 5 People Left the Workforce'[W:88]

    Sessions: 'For Every One Job Added, Nearly 5 People Left the Workforce'
    11:28 AM, JAN 10, 2014 • BY DANIEL HALPER

    Alabama senator Jeff Sessions responds to the latest jobs report:

    Jeff Sessions
    "Today’s jobs report underscores a deeper problem facing our economy: a large and growing block of people who are chronically jobless and completely outside the workforce. In December, the economy added only 74,000 jobs – not nearly enough to keep up with population growth –and 347,000 left the workforce. That means for every one job added, nearly 5 people left the workforce entirely. There are now nearly 92 million Americans outside the workforce, resulting in the lowest participation rate in 36 years. The President’s immigration plan will only make things dramatically worse – and no amount of ‘promise zones’ will be a sufficient remedy for the millions of displaced workers.

    Folks, we can't keep this up, the numbers released by the Obama administration after 5 years of failed policies and smoke and mirrors are damning. 92 million outside the workforce. The jobs added are crap. This is what the democrat party gets us. Take a look at these trends.

    This is awful.
    So, are you and Sessions in favor of extending unemployment benefits?

    Hmmph.....well, that is a problem.
    Let's just say that things were bad before Obama, but now.....now things are super-duper bad.

    I love this "job" discussions between the partisan blinds. It is funny to me how conservatives will call people on welfare lazy and cant get a job then love to bring up how Obama is killing jobs. Which is it? Liberals arent much better claiming that Obama is fixing the economy and creating jobs but we need more welfare!

    Why are democrat policies so prone to failure? How many more recovery summers do we need (the ones where Obama will not rest)?
