    The left hate that Trump is knocking it out of the park on jobs, unemployment, and the economy. Remember when Dem's predicted economic collapse if Trump won.

    They just don't understand a very simple equation: When you lower the tax and regulation burden on business, the economy roars and jobs get created.

    I don't listen to talk radio and it was Obama that said, "Those jobs aren't coming back and shovel-ready jobs....weren't ready"
    Poverty, food stamp use, people being put on disability were way higher under Obama. Job participation rates were the lowest in several decades, income was stagnant and so was growth. No one had to tell me about it; I lived through it and so did you. That makes you the liar.

    Lies, all lies!
    First of all here is what Obama actually said IN CONTEXT, “For those folks who’ve lost their job right now because a plant went down to Mexico — that isn’t gonna make you feel better. And so what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not gonna come back,”

    Another typical Right-wing lie is disability CLAIMS were higher under Obama, but the number of "people being put on disability" went DOWN from 890,400 Bush's last year to 744,300 Obama's last year. Your Right-wing sources deliberately deceived you because they knew you would be too STUPID to know the difference between a disability CLAIM and a disability AWARD!!!!!
    If you go back and look carefully at what the lying scum GOP hate radio shock jocks actually said you will see they actually cited disability CLAIMS numbers knowing you would think that every CLAIM would end up as an award. And SUCKERS like you swallowed it whole.

    They also know that even after you are shown how they deliberately deceived you, you will continue to blindly swallow their same deceptions over and over again.

    There don't seem to be left wing sources for social security disability stats and you don't like right wing sources. Here's a neutral source: http://www.iwf.org/blog/2796127/Americans-on-Disability-Skyrocket-–-Especially-Under-Obama

    The recession was over shortly after Obama came to office, so Americans should have been seeing some improvement in job growth, wages and poverty stats but it didn't happen. Most of the jobs created under Obama were low-paying and part-time. Obamacare and increased regulations and possible taxation kept American business from spending, expanding and hiring which has changed dramatically under Trump.
    The country has seen incredible gains in job creation, wage increases and record unemployment for minorities under Trump. Call me a liar all you want....it doesn't change reality.

    The CONSERVATIVE IWF is hardly a "neutral" source, but you knew that already, and my source for the disability award numbers was the Social Security Administration itself, I always go directly to the actual source. They publish all their stats and as you can easily see the number of disability AWARDS has been declining since 2012 to less than Bush's last year.

    Disabled-worker data: applications & awards

    And of course, everything else you posted were nothing but lies easily proven by the BLS job data readily available on line. But you will continue to use CON$ervative sources you know are lying to you because you like the lies they tell and you are too lazy to look up the data for yourself.
